Baklava is a Turkish dessert that is also popular in Greek and Middle Eastern cuisine. It is made out of sweet dough pastry with nuts or pistachios, honey, lemon and cinnamon.
The correct pronunciation of baklava is BAA-klah-vah.
When pronouncing baklava, the stress is placed on the first syllable, where the "a" is slightly elongated and is pronounced like the "a" in the word "father". The second syllable also contains an "a" that is similar to the first one, however, it can sound a bit like a "u", but this is due to the stress being on the first syllable.
