For a while now, I have been following Knafeh Bakery on Instagram and drooling over their delicious freshly baked knafeh. Unfortunately I haven’t had a chance to visit one of their pop up stalls because I’m busy with my baby, last week I found out they were going to be at Parra Lanes in Parramatta, so I finally decided to go.
On the Wednesday, I managed to finish work heaps early and I arrived at Knafeh Bakery’s pop up stall at 5pm. The gorgeous bearded bakers told the crowd that they wouldn’t be baking until around 5:20pm, so I placed my order and then went for a walk and came back later.
When I arrived back to pick up my order, all I could smell was the intoxicating scent of freshly baked delicious knafeh. Lucky for me, I was the first person to receive my order and I was so excited and couldn’t wait to eat my freshly baked knafeh.
The knafeh was basically a deliciously baked creamy cheese topped with a crunchy semolina crust, pistachios and drizzled with a sugar syrup. Eating this was like a million delicious sensations at once, the knafeh tasted essentially like a warm cheese pudding and it was amazing. The knafeh wasn’t too sweet and I loved the semolina crust.
Unfortunately I rarely get time to visit them when they travel around Sydney, hopefully one day I get to eat one again. In the meantime my friend has given me her mother in law’s recipe, so watch this space.
