Some of the most common Libyan are: Aseeda consisting of flour, water, butter, honey, oil, and salt; Gharaiba Bil Laoz with sugar, butter, flour, and almonds; Kaak Leebi Hilw that is prepared with orange juice or water, oil, baking powder, sugar, flour, eggs, Kammon Kaak, and Jaljalan; Kaak Malih which consists of oil, kahmera, flour, kammon kakk, and zahr. You can also try Basboosa which is prepared with semolina, melted “samn”, sugar, plain yogurt, almonds, and baking powder. Still, there is another delicious dessert belonging to Libyan cuisine and it is called magrood and consists of dates, oil, and cinnamon, semolina, flour, baking powder, sesame seeds, and warm water. To prepare magrood you need to mix semolina, baking powder and flour in a bowl and then add oil. Then you take a handful of the mixture, try to roll it in a ball and if it crumbles it means you have to add more oil. After this you take about 1½ cups of the mixture in another bowl and sprinkle warm water and then mix with hands, almost kneading, until it forms a soft dough.
