We have a saying that a loved child has many names. ❤️ Kunafa, Kanafa, Khnfa… Same delicious scrumptious cake.
The original country isn’t sure. Jordania, Egypt, Palestine, Lebanon is some of claiming to be the country of original.
This is how I learned to make it in Egypt and the best I ever eaten. my recipe is made a lot less sweet as the original recipe. If you have a big sweet tooth, please just double the amount of syrup.
The dough you can find in Middle East or Asians food chops.
