Basboussa, Haressa or Semolina cake

Last week before our trip Zetu made Basbussa or haressa in Cairo they call it Haressa but in Alexandria they call it Basboussa, nenas you love it and baba can eat it none stop.  Is very tasty just perfect and super easy to make.

1 Bag of Semolina (I bought it at the arabic store)
2 Tablespoons of baking power
3 Tablespoons of butter
1 Cup of sugar
1 Cup of milk she used half and half
3 tablespoons of coconut

-In a container put the semolina with the baking powder
-Then in another container mix the butter with the sugar and cream it
-Then add the milk and mix it well
-After mix the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients and the coconut
-In a pan butter it well and put the mixture tap it down and afterwards cut it in squares like in the picture
-Put in the oven at 350 for about an hour

For the syrup or Sharbet

1 cup of sugar
1 cup of water
1/2 lemon

-Put everything in the fire in medium heat till it boils.

After the basboussa is taking out of the oven and the syrup is hot pour it over the basboussa let it cool off and ready to eat.
