Abstract

Mustafakemalpasa (cheese) dessert is a traditional dessert, prepared with sugar syrup, mainly consumed in western parts of Turkey. The dessert is made from fresh unsalted cheese (40-70%), semolina flour (40-50%), baking powder and eggs. The shelf life of the dessert packed in polyethylene bags varies according to being single- or double-baked, the process applied to decrease moisture content, and thus water activity, from 3 days up to 6 months at room temperature.
