Sugar ‘n Spice – Soji Squares

Warm baked Soji Squares soaked in honey syrup…this quick and easy recipe will have you in and out the kitchen in a flash. This recipe is perfect served after a feast with tea or coffee…just for when you don’t feel like a creamy dessert.

I call these Soji Squares but they are also known as Basbosa. They are popular in the Middle East…they are sometimes topped with almonds or pistachios.
