Recipe's preparation

  1. Make the syrup by combing the honey, sugar and orange juice in the mixing bowl. Without the MC, cook 5 min/95°C/Counter-clockwise operation/speed 1. Set aside to cool while the baklava finishes baking.
  2. Baklava
  3. Add pumpkin in mixing bowl. Chop 5 sec/speed 5. Add nuts to the bowl and Chop 5 sec / speed 5. Add cinnamon and sugar and mix 4 sec speed 4. If necessary, chop again to resemble coarse crumbs.
  4. Clean Bowl. Place chopped up butter into mixing bowl and melt 5min/60°C/speed 2. Pour melted butter in jug or bowl. Set aside.
  5. Preheat oven to 200°C. Grease a rectangular baking tray generously. Layer 4 filo sheets in the tray, brushing each sheet with the butter before adding the next layer.
  6. After the 4th layer, brush with butter and sprinkle the pumpkin and walnut mixture evenly to cover the sheet. Repeat steps, 4 layers (butter each layer) then walnut mixture. Continue process until you have 3 layers of walnut mixture. On top of the last layer of walnut mixture with four sheets (butter each sheet). Place in the fridge to chill for 15 minutes.
  7. Carefully cut baklava into vertical strips (about 1.5 inches each) Turn the tray 45 degrees, and again carefully cut into vertical strips, thus creating small diamond shaped baklavas. Now butter that last layer of filo. Place on medium rack and bake for 40 minutes or until golden. While baking, make the syrup.
  8. Take the tray out of the oven, and slowly pour warm syrup generously and evenly over baklava ensuring that the baklava is extremely moist (yet not "swimming" in syrup) Leave uncovered until syrup is soaked up. Allow to cool at least 2 hours, then cover with foil and refrigerate overnight. Serve the following day.

    Cut the baklava into vertical strips with care (about 1.5 inches each) Turn the tray 45 degrees, then carefully slice the dough into vertical strips to form small baklavas in the shape of diamonds. Now butter the final filo layer. Bake for 40 minutes, or until brown, on a medium rack. Make the syrup while baking. drift boss
