Mud in Heaven
(Cennet Çamuru - Kilis - Southeast Anatolia Region)
125 gr shredded dough
2 tbsp butter, unsalted, melted
2-3 tbsp pistachio or walnuts, crumbled
2 tbsp Kaymak
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup water
1 cinnamon stick
1 tsp lemon juice
To prepare the syrup place the water, sugar and cinnamon stick in a medium sized pot. First bring to a boil and continue boiling for about 3-4 minutes. Add the lemon juice, then simmer for about 2-3 minutes. Turn the heat off.
Place the shredded dough in a earth-wear plate. Drizzle the melted butter all over it.
Preheat the oven to 400 F (200 C) and bake for about 30 minutes until the colour of the top turns golden.
Immediately pour the syrup all over it. Let it cool down a little bit. Serve with a dollop of Thick Turkish Cream (Kaymak) on the top. Sprinkle some pistachios and serve while still warm.
