LAYLA FROM LEBANON | EPISODE 5


      Don't you miss my restaurants visits ? me too, so this post is a little review about the place I had lunch at today.

       It's called Layla from Lebanon ( Layla is a girl name in Arabic), located in the cube mall in Al-Salymiya, and it is a Lebanese restaurant.

The place is so so beautiful and cute and I loved it so much.

THE CUTE MENU

     For the food, I've been having appetisers as my main course instead of a large dish that I won't be able to finish. my choice was "manti" which is an Armenian specialty consists of kafta dumplings dipped in tomato sauce and yoghurt. 




        The other food we had was basic Lebanese food, but the most important item for we was a type of appetisers  which called "muhammara" which is basically crushed walnuts with other ingredients, and it tastes incredible.



           Alongside other delicious dishes... 




So this was my visit to Layla from Lebanon, if you even been there, don't hesitate to tell me:)

LAZY CAKE

Hello.. I really missed being here but now I'm back


This recipe is not a cake at all, yet it's as delicious as a cake, also the reason why it's called lazy because it needs to be set for a long time in the freezer.


Ingredients:
- 2 packs of digestive biscuits 
- 2 sticks of unsalted butter
- 50 grams of chocolate 
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder

You'll also need:
Silicon mold


Method:

1. crush the biscuits into fine pieces, you also need some bigger chunks.


2. In a large pot on the stove, add only 1 1/2 sticks of butter ( you will need the other half later) and let the butter melt.

3. when the butter is almost melted, add the chocolate and stir it very well, make sure it does'nt burn.


4. At this stage add the cocoa powder, this gives the mixture  richy taste and nicer colour.


5. Once everything is mixed well, and the biscuits and stir them very well.


6. Remember the butter we left earlier, this is the time we will use it, add it and stir one more time.

7. Grab the Silicon mold, and using an ice cream scoop start scooping the mixture and tap it with your hand to sit it in place.


8. wrap the mold with plastic wrap and pop in the freezer over night.



- once it's ready get it out of the freezer and serve it.
