Online school is still going strong, and with the numbers of new cases, it seems that we might end up with a full online semester not just a couple of weeks. With two kids at home, attending classes from 8 to 2. I find myself falling back on quick and easy recipes. Ones that I can prepare the night before or ones that I can quickly whip up without creating too much noise during the day. Today’s chicken kofta is one of those recipes.

Adding a layer of date paste infused with spices between the layers of batter lends a unique taste and texture to the baked cake making it extra moist. Add the nutty crunch of the walnut topping ,and the result is an irresistible blend of cake meets maamoul that you just have to try!

4 ingredients, melt in your mouth, no baking, no added sugar! And believe it or not, the recipe is hundreds of years old! (And you thought energy balls were a hip new food trend ๐Ÿ˜‰)โ €

Bsaisit al kharob is actually an ancient Palestinian recipe. It uses staples from the pantry: whole wheat flour, carob molasses, sesame seeds and olive oil. It was one of the essentials travellers would pack for pilgrimage and long trips because it lasts for a long time without going bad and it is loaded with nutrients and health benefits. Both essential when you have to spend months on the road.โ €
