Saudi Arabia is known for its traditional desserts which typically use plenty of honey, pistachios and an abundance of sweetness. Kunafa is probably among the most popular and widely served as a dessert in the Kingdom. However, American Bedu would like to remind readers that the blog Food and Recipe Page has a variety of favorite dishes and desserts that have been contributed by readers.
For those who are in the Kingdom and having a taste for traditional Western (American) style desserts, it can be challenging. The majority of bakeries specialize in desserts of the region.
Jeddah residents who desire American style cakes may wish to investigate Helen”s Bakery on Kayyal street. She is an American woman who has been baking in Jeddah since the 1970’s. Residents of Riyadh are not left out either. Rana, founder of Elite Delights, is a Saudi woman who specializes in homemade truffles.
American Bedu welcomes those who are in the Kingdom to share their favorite bakeries, bakers and places to get the perfect dessert!
