Red Velvet Basbousa

This innovative recipe takes everything we love about traditional, syrupy-sweet basbousa and adds a modern twist in the preparation and presentation. The result is seriously special and cream-cheese topped red velvet basbousa is one of those memorable desserts that gets everyone talking (and asking how you made it).
