Almond London Recipe: Crunchy Chocolatey Goodness for Hari Raya!
For Muslims all over the world, Hari Raya Aidilfitri is a festive event that calls for a glorious celebration to usher in the blessed month of Syawal. This day also marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan when Muslims fast for 30 days from dawn to dusk. Celebrations of Hari Raya in Singapore and Malaysia are very similar — families visit one another, seek forgiveness and feast together to strengthen bonds of faith among the community. And no Hari Raya bonding is complete without the delicious sweet treats and kuihs! From the delicious Tapak Kuda to the highly sought after Kuih Sugee, the options for kuihs are endless. We're delighted to share this recipe for a crowd favourite — the famous Almond London! To make your baking experience enjoyable, we recommend using the Kenwood Titanium Mixer.
