Greek Ekmek Kataifi

Greek Ekmek Kataifi

Greek Ekmek Kataifi is a traditional Greek dessert that has three layers. Finely chopped pistachios are generously sprinkled on top of the whipped cream and the result is beautiful and delicious.

Key Ingredients

kadayifi pastry

unsalted butter

and more...

Place your pulled apart kataifi dough in the baking pan and spread evenly. Drizzle the melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon.

Step 1

Bake in middle rack of oven for 20 – 30 minutes. As soon as you remove the dough from the oven pour the syrup over it.

Step 2

Make the custard filling combining all ingredients and cook.

Step 3

Once your custard is thickened, pour it over the syrup-soaked kataifi. Place in the refrigerator for at least 2 to 3 hours until the custard is set.

Step 4

Make the whipped topping  and spread evenly over the cooled and set custard filling and then top with the chopped pistachios.

Step 5

Return to refrigerator to set for at least 30 minutes before serving.

Step 6

- This is not essential, but I love using a glass baking pan because I can monitor how brown the kataifi pastry gets on the bottom. - When you are pouring the syrup over the hot baked kataifi pastry, ensure that the syrup is at room temperature.
