It is the
second time that I prepare this cake.
The first time, I prepared it a few months ago

How could I forget to post the famous recipe of my mother, Meskouta, the recipe of
Moroccan cake recipe that my mother use to prepare for us all the time.
To take the exact measurements ingredients from my mother is a big problem as I have already mentioned it in one of my recipes, everything is weighed
with her eyes, I wonder how she does it, without measuring.In myrecipes,without measuring ingredients especially when it is about cake recipes, I am lost...
I know that there are many like me out there, so I tried to give you the exact ingredients for this recipe in the
It is a recipe found in one of my German books that I kept carefully among my collection of culinary books. It pleases me "to dive" into these books from
time to time. I cannot stop myself of buying although I have more than 300 books in 4 languages; Arabic, French, English and German.
What was bizzare, is that I found the same recipe in one

chocolate and coconut in the arabic book. I preferred the almond filling.

So please understand that I have thousands of things to do and
notmuch time to do them.
Let's move on to the recipe.
Last time I presented to you a Braid filled with chocolateCLIC.
As I told you before, I divided the dough into 3, I stuffed one
with chocolate bars (see the pictures below) and the others
with cream cheese, which is the recipe for today.
For the dough, see my previous recipe
* 2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese
* 3/4 cup sugar
* 1 egg
* 1 tsp almond extract
* a pinch of salt
Egg Wash :
* 1 egg white
* 1 tsp water
Beat all the filling ingredients until smooth.
Roll the dough out forming a rectangle.
Spread filling all over within 1/2 in.of edges.
Roll up jelly-roll style, tuck ends under,
place seams side down.
With a sharp knife, make deep slashes across the top of the loaf.
Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 h.
Bake at 375 F for 20-25 min or until golden brown.
I brushed one with egg wash and I left the other one plain,
in order to show you the difference as you can see.
The next recipe, I will give you the result of your votes and my decision regarding written recipes on the blog or on the video.
