There are many occasions at which you can serve up a tray of Baklava, but some occasions call for such a sweet treat more specifically than others. As such, here is a list of the 5 best occasions for Baklava, and what makes it such a great dish for them.
For a Birthday
Birthdays are a time for the celebration of a person’s life, and Baklava is a great dish to serve up for the birthday person in question. After all, you could lay out a cake for them, with a few candles and some singing, but if you want to make the occasion truly special, Baklava is the way to go. It’s a sweet treat, that makes enough for every person at the party to have a slice, especially if you’re throwing a birthday party for a child.
At The End of Ramadan
The end of Ramadan is a special time and is celebrated through a three-day festival. And why should you think about serving Baklava for it? Because the end of Ramadan is a time of celebration, and a time of giving back to those around you, and when you take a tray of Baklava out of the oven, there’s going to be enough to go around everyone on your street! It’s a good way to settle the stomach and give back.
For Family Reunions
Often traditionally made when receiving guests, Baklava is a great treat to make when you’re seeing family for the first time in a long while, and could very well make them never want to leave again! It’s a hearty, sweet treat that helps to warm up the atmosphere, and your guests will thank you for laying out such a lovely spread.
At Christmas Time
Christmas is one of the biggest holidays around the world, and if you want to serve a dessert that captures the essence of the season, a plate of Baklava is a great option.
