Ingredients

• 1 tablespoon tahini (sesame paste)
• 4 cups semolina or cream of wheat
• 1 cup plain yogurt
• 2 cups sugar
• 3 teaspoons baking powder
• 1/2 cup shredded coconut
• 1/2 cup blanched almonds
• 1 cup sweet syrup (Kater)

Kater:
• 3 cups sugar
• 1 cup water
• 1/2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
• 1/2 cup orange blossom water 
Preparation

Nammura:
• Preheat the oven to 175 C. Grease a 13 × 9 inch cake pan with the tahini.
• Mix the semolina, yogurt, sugar, and baking powder.
• Pour the mixture into the pan and spread evenly. Sprinkle the coconut and almonds on top.
• Cake until golden brown, about 45 minutes. Nammura will get too hard if you over bake it so keep a watch over it as oven temps vary.
• When done, cut into small squares while still in the pan. Spoon cold honey syrup over the hot Nammura.
• Let cool to room temperature for one hour, then serve.

Kater:
• Combine the sugar and water in a small saucepan, and heat over medium until boiling, about 10-15 minutes.
• Once thickened, add the lemon juice and orange blossom water.
• Stir and remove from the heat right away.
• Let cool to room temperature.
• Always pour cold Kater over hot Nammura never the other way around.
Additional Notes
Its a good idea to have multiple pans going at one time to make the cook ... otherwise the 2 hours could turn into a half a day. :)
