Soufra is a Greek custard cake using filo pastry all baked together with ingredients like blueberries and lemon to make a beautiful desert. 'Soufra' is the Greek word for 'ruffle', and the filo pastry is folded in a concertina design giving extra pockets for the custard to seep into.
Ingredients:600ml double cream375g filo pastry200g melted butter200g sugar100g blueberries5 eggsZest of 2 lemons1 tsp vanilla extract½ tsp saltIcing sugar to dust
Method:Preheat oven to 180⁰C, grease and line a 26cm cake tin, (if using a springform cover the base with silver foil).
On a clean surface lay one sheet of filo pastry, narrow end (portrait) in front of you, brush with the melted butter and then lay a second sheet on top. Holding the end closet to you, use your fingers to draw the length of the pastry towards you, fan like. Coil this and place in the centre of the cake tin. Repeat with the rest of the filo pastry coiling each piece outwards from the centre filling the tin. Brush the rest of the melted butter over the top and then place in the oven for 15 mins until golden.
For the custard:Place the cream, sugar, eggs, vanilla, salt and lemon zest in a bowl and combine using a hand whisk. Pour this over the filo pastry and then scatter the blueberries. Place in the oven for appx 30 mins until golden, remove and allow to cool. Dust with icing sugar before serving.
