These delectable treats are half from Morocco and are very similar to a French crêpe. The Baghrir batter is cooked on a griddle and forms into light, porous pancakes. Then they are finished off with some homemade orange blossom sauce for a little extra sweetness.

Preparation

To Make the Baghrir:

  2. In a blender, mix 1 cup water, semolina, orange blossom water, and salt.
  3. Add the yeast mixture and blend really well. Add more water if necessary to obtain a somewhat liquid batter.
  4. Let the mixture stand for 30 minutes.
  5. Heat a nonstick pan on medium-high heat and pour some of the mixture in the center of the pan. Tiny holes should form really quickly. Cook on one side for about 2 minutes.
