Mud in Heaven

(Cennet Çamuru - Kilis - Southeast Anatolia Region)

Mud in Heaven
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.

Two or one servings

This looks really yummy and easy to make. I wish we had some real kaymak here in Canada, that would make this dish amazing. Thank you for the recipe, unusual name for a dessert :)

Tel Kadayif and Cennet Camuru look similar but they are not the same:)
Sometimes the preparation or cooking style or even the addition of one small ingredient or which region it is could make the difference:)
Take care,
