Ayaou M'semmen

75 mins (prep 30, cooking 45)
5 ingredients
16-20 servings
This is a Moroccan flaky flat almost crepe like bread. Best eaten warm it is well loved here for breakfast with butter, sugar, honey, cinnamon, ground almonds or a combination of these. As street food it is nearly always delicious and made at home is even better! We also stuff these with sweet mixtures such as roughly ground almonds and sugar or honey and love them stuffed savory with onions, parsley, tomato and if I have any, leftover crumbled Hajar's Zweena Beef Kefta or a combination. The beef is certainly not obiligatory!! Be careful to oil, oil, oil, your hands and surfaces well! I have worn M'semmen many times due to lack of oil. I can still remember the smile on Mohamed's face when I told him that I made m'semmen long before coming to Morocco. For more info, visit the African Forum where I have a column and others make wonderful contributions! c.2005
