Start your desert with the base, remove the hard edges of the sliced white bread and leave the core of the bread to fill the first layer of your Pyrex tray. Then start preparing the Sugar syrup, start it by boiling a cup of water with 2 cups of sugar stirring occasionally until it boils then add the lemon juice, blossom and rose water and use half of the syrup to cover the layer of bread until they are completely saturated with the syrup and leave the rest for the serving if desired.
Now it’s time to prepare your second layer the cream mixture, very simple but needs stirring all the time, start by mixing the corn flour with the milk until the corn flour completely dissolves then add the sugar ,blossom water and rose water and stir at a low temperature until the mixture thickens you then put it aside and quickly add the whipping cream and don’t stop mixing until they combine then empty the mixture on top of the first layer of bread and syrup leave it to cool in the fridge for thirty minutes and then sprinkle the delicious pistachios.
