Recipe's preparation

  1. 1. Place flour, yeast, mahlab, sugar and water in this order into the bowl.

    2. 5 seconds/speed 7 to combine.

    3. KneadDough mode for 7 minutes.

    Let the dough rest in a lightly oiled bowl for 30-60 minutes depending on the warmth of the room (it will not double in size like regular dough).

    4. Prepare your glaze by mixing golden syrup and boiling water to create a thin glaze.

    4. Divide dough mixture into roughly 150-160 gram balls which should make 5 portions.

    5. Flatten balls using either your fingers or rolling pin into 14-15cm diameter.

    6. Using pastry brush, brush the flattened dough with the golden syrup mixture all over.

    7. Sprinkle with sesame seeds generously and push lightly using hands so that the seeds stick to the dough.

    8. Place the dough sesame seed side down onto a baking tray lined with baking paper.

    9. Press 3-4 holes using your index finger into the dough.

    10. Glaze with pastry brush, sprinkle and press sesame seeds as previously done on bottom side.

    Continue the same method for the rest of the dough while the oven is preheating at 180-200 degrees.

    11. Bake until golden in colour keeping in mind that they will take on more colour once stuffed and toasted with cheese.

    Place on wire rack to cool. Once at room temperature hold the kaak with palm on top against the kitchen bench and run a sharp knife around to cut in half.

    Stuff with any cheese your heart desires with a sprinkle of Sumac for some tang and toast in sandwich press.


Plain flour for best results.

Flatten dough into 1.5cm to 2cm in thickness max
