Maamoul cakes are a classic oriental dessert. The small cakes filled with sweet dates or almonds, nuts or pistachios are served throughout the year. Also, they make a special treat after Ramadan. The soft dough and sweet filling make Maamoul exceedingly delicious and they keep well if kept in an airtight container. If you use a special Maamoul mold, the cakes turn out adorned with a beautiful ornament – sure to be a highlight with your guests.
