Vegan Basbosa // Semolina Cake

Ramadan is coming up and I want to provide you guys with A LOT of yummy, filling, and healthy recipes to keep you nourished during this holy month. If you have any suggestions for Ramadan recipes, just let me know in the comments xx

I'm going to be honest with you and tell you that this basboosa recipe isn't as good as your regular, dripping with oil and sugar syrup basboosa. However, it's still pretty damn good. Especially for the fact that it's refined sugar-free and oil-free.
