Just a very quick and easy Lebanese sweet that most people love. Only takes about 15 minutes in total.

Ingredients (serves 12)

  • 1 cup cornflour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 litre milk
  • 300ml thickened cream
  • 300g corn flake crumbs


  1. Cover the bottom of a large baking tray with half of the corn flake crumbs.
  2. On a stove top, put in the sugar, cornflour, milk and cream and whisk together until it starts to thicken, approx. 10 minutes. You need to keep mixing within this time.
  3. Once thick, put in the baking tray over the corn flake crumbs.
  4. Put the rest of the corn flake crumbs over the cream until covered. Refrigerate for about an hour then cut and serve. Delicious and easy

  • Looks delish


  • Ooooh we’ve tried Knafeh’s version but hadn’t thought to make it ourselves.


  • It’s similar to milk custard pudding, but very thick.


  • I would like to try this, looks so easy


  • Looks like a nice simple version
    I Like my knafeh with cheese and syrup .thanks for sharing


  • I have never tried this I’m curious to try though


  • I must try this. A bit different and looks easy enough. Thanks.


  • A very interesting combination of ingredients. Look forward to trying it and seeing what it’s like for myself


  • is it like a custard? Nice to have some Lebanese recipes.

    • ummm, yes, I guess, but much more sweeter and heavier. But really delicious too. I have heard you can substitute corn flake crumbs with bread crumbs!!

      • You can use a sweet syrup thing on top, made from rose water and sugar, but I find that makes it oo sweet to eat. Hope you like it
