    Thanks so much for sharing this recipe! It looks really sumptuous! I find your site very interesting since I have a classmate way back in high school who is a Muslim. She always tells me stories of how they were raised in discipline and that it made them great individuals as time passes. Now she is married and parenting her own beautiful daughter.

    Will check out your site for more recipes to come. In the meantime, hope you can check out too my site about industrial washing machines.

    Salaam. U don’t specify how to mix wet ingredients.Do you beat eggs and sugar together then add liquids or do you see sugar as dry ingredient and sift with flour.
