Künefe is a Turkish cheesecake made with Kadayif (angel hair) and cheese.

This Turkish dessert is not very healthy but it is so good!

Which Cheese for the Künefe recipe?

A fibrous, unsalted cheese made from a mixture of cow’s milk and sheep’s milk

Turks use a desalted cheese like Dil Peynir which is a fibrous, unsalted cheese made from a mixture of sheep’s milk and cow’s milk. If you don’t have Peynir, Mozzarella or Ricotta cheese will do very well.

Preparation of the syrup

In a saucepan, dilute the sugar in 12cl of water. Place the pan on the heat and mix well. Skim off the white foam that forms on top and add a tablespoon of lemon juice to the boil. Stir for another 3 minutes on the heat and set aside.

Preparation of angel hair

Melt the butter and set aside. Lent and cut the angel hair with scissors (in small pieces of 1 to 2 cm) in a large dish and mix them with the warm melted butter, taking care to work the dough evenly. Divide your Künefe dough into two equal portions.

Dressing and cooking your homemade Künefe

In a medium-sized pan, spread the first half of the Künefe dough and cover with Peynir or shredded Mozzarella. If you like, you can add a few crushed pistachios on top. Add the second part of your buttered angel hair on top. Fry for about 10 minutes over medium heat until the dough browns. Using a plate or lid, turn the cheesecake over and bake for another 10 minutes on the other side.
