Ka'ak - Arabic Bread Rings

Ka'ak is a Arabic word which means cake and can refer to several different types of baked goofies produced throughout the Arab World..Ka'ak is a bread consumed often in Arabic world and looks like a large ring shaped bread and covered with sesame seeds or simply prepared with dry fruits and saffrons..Widely sold by street vendors, its usually eaten as a snack or for breakfast with any spread..This ka'ak is prepared with a sweet dough, rolled into ropes and formed as a rings and topped with sesame seeds, instead of za'atar as spice mix widely known and common in Middle Eastern cuisine, this ka'ak is glazed with milk and sesame seeds, as i like sesame seeds over sweet breads..We loved this Ka'ak with butter and jam ,enjoyed having this bread rings for our breakfast and snacks..Sending to Flavors of Cuisines - Middle Eastern guest hosted by Asiya Akka, event by Julie..
