Ramadan is the Islamic holy fasting month. Each day, the fast is broken at sundown with some delicious meals.
Families and restaurants prepare an array of foods, including some very special desserts, to feed everyone. Here are some of the most special desserts served each year during Ramadan:
Qatayef with cheese/nuts – Arabic pancakes, served with toppings, that can either be fried or baked.
Basbousa – a semolina cake with almonds. Like baklava, it is drizzled with a syrup.
Baklava – the most common dessert served during Ramadan. This sweet, flaky pastry dessert is often served with syrups, pistachios and other nuts.
