Recipe's preparation

  1. Bring water, sugar, lemon and honey to the boil.  Stir with a wooden spoon to dissolve sugar.

    Simmer for 15 minutes.  Leave to cool.

  2. Custard

    Put milk, semolina, eggs, sugar, cornflour & lemon juice into Thermomix bowl.  Cook for 13 -15 mins at 90oC speed 4.   In the last 1-2 minutes add the 25 grams softened butter.

    While custard is cooking brush the baking dish with melted butter and layer half the sheets of pastry in it one by one, brushing each sheet with melted butter.  Make sure the pastry covers the sides of the dish.  You do not need to worry about having the sheets perfectly flat.

    Pour custard over pastry then use the remaining filo to layer sheets one by one making sure you butter each sheet as you go.

    Mark slices in squares of 5cm by cutting though the top layer of pastry.  (You can also cut on an angle to make diamond shapes if you prefer)

    Sprinkle pasty with water and bake ain a 180oC oven for 45-55 minutes or until golden.

    When custard is cool, pour syrup over and cut slices.  Best served on day of baking.




Accessories you need



Alternatively, if you prefer a even thicker custard you can use more semolina.  Just increase the amount to 200-250 grams.  This is a much denser texture and slightly 'heavier' to eat.  It may need extra cooking time up to 20 mins.
