Baghrir (Moroccan Pancakes) šŸ„ž

Baghrir, also known as Moroccan pancakes or “thousand-hole pancakes,” are a delightful and unique addition to any breakfast or brunch table. These light and airy pancakes have a distinctive texture, making them perfect for soaking up delicious toppings like melted butter and honey. Follow this easy recipe to make your own Baghrir at home!

Ingredients:

  • 1 Ā½ cups fine semolina flour
  • Ā¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups lukewarm water (+2 tbsp more)
  • 2 tsp active dry yeast
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • Ā½ tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp sugar

Serving Suggestion:

  • Ā¼ cup melted butter
  • Ā¼ cup honey (combined with melted butter)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the Oven Preheat your oven to 200Ā°F (93Ā°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a thin kitchen towel. This will help keep the pancakes warm as you cook them.
  2. Prepare the Batter Place all the ingredients into a blender and puree for 1 minute. Pour the batter into a medium bowl, cover with a kitchen towel, and let it stand at room temperature until bubbly on top, which takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The consistency of the batter should be thin, similar to crepe batter or whipping cream.
  3. Cook the Pancakes Preheat a non-stick griddle or skillet over medium heat for 2 minutes. Stir the batter, and using a Ā¼ cup measure, pour batter into the skillet. Cook until holes form and the Baghrir feels dry to the touch, about 2-3 minutes. Be careful to watch the heat and lower it if the edges get too dark before the top is dry. Remember, Baghrir is only cooked on one side, so do not flip.
  4. Keep Pancakes Warm Transfer each pancake to the baking sheet and keep warm in the oven while you cook the remaining batter. This ensures that all your pancakes stay warm and ready to serve at the same time.
  5. Serve Serve the Baghrir warm or at room temperature with melted butter and honey drizzled on top. For a sweeter option, spread 1 tablespoon of Nutella on top and roll the pancake up to eat by hand. Enjoy the delicate, spongy texture that makes Baghrir so special.
