Om Ali - Bread Pudding

No dessert can beat the deliciousness of Om Ali, the Egyptian sweet that originally comes from Lower Egypt “Falaheen” (peasants).


1 package of baked to crunch puff pastry sheets (1.75 ounce) or ½ Phyllo dough package

2 cups of chopped nuts (almond, hazelnut, walnut, raisin and coconut)

4 cups of milk

1 cup of white Sugar

½ cup heavy cream

½ spoon of cinnamon


In a pot, combine all chopped nuts and 1/4 cup sugar. Break cooked pastry into pieces and stir into nut mixture. Spread mixture evenly. Bring milk and 1/2 cup sugar to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Pour over nut mixture. Beat the heavy cream with the remaining 1/4 cup sugar until stiff peaks form. Spread evenly over nut mixture. Place dessert under oven broiler until top is golden brown, about 10 minutes. Serve hot.
