The recipe for Baghrirs or thousand-hole pancakes / Moroccan cuisine

For 6 persons
Preparation: 10 mins
-250 g of fine semolina
-250g of flour
-1 packet of baking powder
-10 g of dry baker’s yeast
-50 cl of lukewarm water
-100 g of honey
-100g of butter
-100 g of fresh almonds

Preparation / Moroccan cuisine

1. Mix the semolina, flour, salt and baking powder in a bowl or in a mixer. Mix this mixture with lukewarm water by adding the baker’s yeast, diluted in a little lukewarm water. Let stand 1 hour.

2. Just before cooking, stir the dough, heat the frying pan without fat over high heat. Pour a ladle of batter, tilt the pan to spread it evenly and cook only on one side without turning: holes will appear on the surface and it will dry out. Repeat the process until the dough is used up.

3. Mix the butter, honey and almonds. Pour this preparation on each baghrir before tasting.
