Oops! This recipe is not in al-Baghdadi. It was 
published in David Waines "In a Caliph's 
Kitchen", where Waines says it is 13th C. 

I wonder if it might be from Fadalat al-Jiwan fi 
Tayyibat al-t'aam wa-l-alwan (Highlights of the 
table, on dishes and stews) by Abu l-Hasan 'Ali 
ibn Muhammad ibn Abi l-Qasim ibn Muhammad ibn Abi 
Bakr ibn al-Andalusi Razin al-Tuyibi, and 
Andalusi from Murcia, between 1228 and 1243.

Some recipes from this book are reproduced in Spanish on:
apparently from:
Fernando de la Granja Santamaría
"La cocina arabigoandaluza según un manuscrito inédito." Tesis doctoral.
Madrid, Facultad de Filosofía y Letras, 1960

It even includes a bread recipe and a couscous recipe.
Urtatim (that's err-tah-TEEM)
the persona formerly known as Anahita
