Moroccan Honeycomb Pancakes (Beghrir)
115 mins (prep 70, cooking 45)
11 ingredients
25-30 servings
These Moroccan pancakes have a light spongy texture. They are cooked on one side in a griddle or flat earthenware pan so that little holes prick the top & give it the attractive honeycomb appearance. Beghrir is often served with honey & melted butter. This recipe makes a large number of pancakes. They can be stored in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. To cut down on cooking time I use a griddle so I can make several pancakes at a time. If you use fast rising yeast the batter may thicken as it sits. Try making 1 or 2 pancakes & if they seem too thick then add a small amount of water to the batter, a couple of spoonfuls. This should take care of the problem. (The prep time the rest time for the batter.)
