Banket - World Cuisine

I’m not a baker, but I remember my mom’s banket recipe and decided to try it with some modifications. This is the best banket recipe you’ll ever taste! It’s surprisingly easy to make and your kids will love helping out. If they’re old enough, this is also a great activity for them to do on their own as an after-school project.
