Bougatsa Recipe

In celebration, we share our Bougatsa recipe to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Bougatsa is a traditional Greek dessert, which can be eaten any time of the day!

It consists of layers and layers of delicious and crispy filo pastry, which is filled with a creamy custard and then dusted with cinnamon and icing sugar.

Here is an easy recipe to follow from my yiayia’s hands (walking cookbook).

It’s simply DIVINE and I know you want to eat it!

*Tip: Use a clean cloth to cover the phyllo you are not yet working with.


1 packet of filo pastry

1 litre of milk

1 cup of caster sugar

1 cup of fine semolina

4 eggs, beaten

1 tablespoon of vanilla essence

orange rind, grated

oil for brushing

1 tablespoon of cinnamon

icing sugar and cinnamon, for dusting


Preheat oven to 200°C.

Heat milk in a pot over medium heat. Add the semolina and stir consistently. Allow the cream to thicken.

In a bowl, mix the beaten eggs, sugar, vanilla essence and cinnamon.

Add the mixture from the bowl into the pot. Keep stirring over the heat until the mixture thickens into a custard and no lumps form. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.

Open up your pack of phyllo and unwrap the sheets. Lay 3 sheets of pastry one on top of the other, brushing oil between each sheet. Cut pastry into 4 squares.

Place 1/3 cup of custard mixture in the bottom center of your square. Fold sides over and then roll up. Brush the top with oil.

Place each roll on a greased tray and bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown.

When ready, remove tray from oven. Allow the bougatses to cool on a rack.

Dust with sifted icing sugar and cinnamon. Enjoy!
