Baklava recipes

Baklava is a Greek and Middle Eastern delight that is almost impossible to resist. Depending on the version, you might find recipes with walnuts, almonds or pistachios - or a mixture of nuts. Baklava is loads easier to make than it seems, and is a terrific dinner party dessert as it's best made a day ahead.

A Greek favourite that makes everyone think you are a master chef, yet it is sooo easy to make!! I taught a Greek friend how to make sticky toffee pud, and she taught me this fabulous recipe.

The classic Greek pastry, which is nutty and deliciously sweet. Buttered filo pastry is layered with mixed nuts, then baked before being drenched in a honey syrup. Enjoy with a Greek coffee.

This is the best baklava recipe that I've come up with. It comes after devouring many different types of baklava. The assembling may take a little time, but it's really worth it. Serve with Greek coffee for a wonderful treat.

To break out of the norm, this baklava is made from hazelnuts and pistachios. Baklava is known to be cloyingly sweet, this one is no different. Serve with Greek coffee for the perfect treat.

This sweet and sticky dessert is a twist on the classic Greek baklava. Sweetened nuts are layered between buttered filo pastry, then drenched in a honey-toffee sauce.
