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.

    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 traditional Greek baklava has layers of tender filo pastry with a walnut filling and is coated in a spiced syrup. This delicious recipe was passed from my Yia Yia to her daughter-in-law (my mother) to me. I've added a few extra tips at the end!

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