Home-Style Chocolate Baklava {Exclusive King Arthur Flour Pastry Set Giveaway $65  value}

Baklava is so yummy!  it’s even yummier homemade. Now I’m not referring to the frozen phyllo dough , I mean real home-style baklava made with homemade phyllo dough.

I buy baklava from outside all the time, it’s delicious, I also make it at home using the frozen phyllo dough and that’s great as well, but seriously, baklava with homemade phyllo dough is something else! It’s like eating a burger king burger and than eating another burger at a gourmet restaurant.. you never know how good the other burger tasted until you try it!

  • 1 1/2 cup King Arthur Pastry Flour or unbleached all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1/2 tsp cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • Filling:
  • 1.5 cups chopped walnuts or any other kind of nuts of your choice
  • 1/2 cup chopped chocolate
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar or granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp apple allspice
  • Syrup:
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 3 whole cloves or 1/4 tsp ground cloves


  • In a medium bowl combine the nuts, brown sugar, chopped chocolate, cinnamon, and allspice. Set Aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl mix flour and salt. In a small bowl combine the oil, vinegar, and water. Pour into the flour mixture. Using a mixer or by hand, mix the mixture slowly until a dough forms. Knead the dough for at least 10 minutes until it's soft and silky.
  • Form the dough into a ball, brush with oil and cover for 1 hour. After the dough has relaxed cut into 18 equal pieces.Form the dough into balls.
  • Working on the balls one by one flatten each piece on a well floured surface, roll out with a rolling pin until you it's about 9" x 9", if you want to be precise use a ruler and cut the edges to get a 9x9'' shape. Make sure to use a lot of flour so that the dough does not stick to the counter or rolling pin.
  • Place the sheet of dough into a 9x9 inch pan and brush with butter. continue to do this until you have 6 sheets buttered in the pan. Next, sprinkle half of the nut mixture on the sheets and continue to roll out 6 more sheets. After you have rolled out the next layer of 6 sheets our the remaining nut mixture and repeat the process for the last 6 sheets of dough. Remember to brush between each layer lightly with butter.
  • Once you are done with layering cut the baklava into squares or triangles. Preheat the oven for 10 minutes at 390 degrees.
  • Bake for 30 minutes at 390 degrees. After 30 minutes lower the temperature to 350 degrees and bake for 30 minutes until the baklava is a nice golden color.
  • Syrup
  • While the baklava is baking combine all the ingredients for the syrup and boil on medium heat for 12 minutes. remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.
  • Pour syrup on warm baklava. Store the baklava at room temperature in an airtight container for up to two weeks.
