- 2 cups of ghee
- 2 1/2 cups of Butter
- 1 tablespoon of Blossom water or vanilla extract
- 1 pinch of salt; quarter of a teaspoon
- 3 tablespoons of sesame

- Add sesame and cake vanilla or blossom water to the flour and mix very well.
- Gradually pour the ghee over the flour, while continuing to stir in the flour with a wooden spoon until well combined and allow cooling.
- Stir the flour again with your fingertips, then knead it vigorously so that the flour absorbs the ghee well.
- Put the yeast in a bowl and mix with the amount of sugar and water, and leave for a short time until it increases in size and is ready.
- Add the yeast to the flour and ghee mixture, stir with fingertips, then knead well until a smooth, smooth dough is obtained.
- Cover the dough with cling film and leave it for about half an hour to rise.
- When the dough is ready to start working, divide it into pieces of suitable size.
- Place a small portion of the dough in the palm of your hand and roll it several times to get a spherical shape, then press it slightly.
- Decorate with a hand chisel or with ready-made moulds
- Arrange on the baking trays. Bake the muffins in a medium heat oven for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown on the bottom.
- Remove the tray from the oven and leave to cool completely. Place the cakes in a serving dish, sprinkle with powdered sugar
- Serve and enjoy your cakes!
