Kanafeh with feta cheese

Kanafeh with feta cheese


  • Preheat oven to 160 * C (320* F) Fan.
  • In a pot, add the sugar, water, cinnamon and lemon juice.
  • Simmer syrup for 5 minutes over low heat.
  • Melt 350 g of butter. Add 3 tablespoons milk. Stir.
  • Cut up shredded phyllo dough into small pieces. Pour butter mixture over it and mix, making sure all of the phyllo dough is coated.
  • Heat the milk, semolina and cheeses in a pot, until it becomes a creamy mixture.
  • Spread half of the shredded phyllo dough in a baking pan. Press down on it gently to make sure it covers the bottom of the pan evenly. Pour filling over it, leaving a border unfilled. Spread the remaining shredded phyllo dough over the filling.
  • Bake for 45 minutes, until the top turns golden and crunchy.
  • Remove from oven and pour cold syrup over kanafeh while it is still very hot.


The syrup should be made a day in advance or at least a few hours earlier so it can cool completely.

You can also use ricotta cheese or cream cheese.
