This viral TikTok phyllo crinkle cake has its roots in Middle Eastern desserts; however, this muakacha is something you’re unlikely to have had before! Featuring crispy phyllo and a custard filling, it’s a sure winner for your Easter or Ramadan table. 


  • 1 package phyllo dough, defrosted
  • 220g of butter melted
  • 350ml milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 300g sugar (200g for syrup, 100g for custard)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 200g candy-coated mini eggs


  1. Heat the oven to 175C and line a 13×9 inch/ 30x20cm baking sheet with parchment paper. Grab 2 sheets of phyllo dough by the corners and scrunch in approx 3cm intervals. Click here to see the assembly in action. 
  2. Place the crinkled dough, folds facing upwards, into the baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes.
  3. Trickle melted butter evenly on top and bake for a further 10 minutes.
  4. During this time, make the custard by combining ½  cup sugar, 1 cup milk, 2 eggs and 2 tsp vanilla.
  5. Remove the crinkle from the oven, pour the custard evenly over the folds and bake once more for 30-40 minutes until crispy and golden.
  6. Finally, combine ½ cup water and 1 cup of sugar to create a simple syrup. Reduce until the syrup reaches a tacky consistency. Once the crinkle is ready, drizzle over the syrup, leave to cool and then enjoy!
