Soğuk Kadayıf (Cold Kadayıf)

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Soğuk Kadayıf (Cold Kadayıf) is a traditional Turkish dessert and is common in the Middle East and East European countries. Kadayif has an Arabic version called Kanafeh. It is usually confused with other pastries with kadayif on their names such as ekmek kadayif (bread pudding) or tas kadayif (stone pancakes). Although they are closely related as a family of pastries, kadayif typically refers to tel kadayif Toronto or string kadayif meaning “string pudding”. It is termed string kadayif because of the string dough used in making the desert. The string dough is made using a machine which pours out string dough down to a round plate made of metal – which makes the dough half-baked afterwards.

In the old days, these string dough used to be made by the Usta or the master and cooked for the whole neighbourhood to share. Kadayif is typically served in a large metal plate called tepsi. Half of the dough is spread on the metal plate then sprinkled with crushed walnut or pistachio. The remaining half is then poured over the nuts and added with melted butter or margarine. After layering, the plate is then put inside the oven to bake the top into a beautiful reddish-brown. After baking, the syrup may then be poured over the kadayif.
