Easy Method To Make the Moroccan Pancakes - BAGHRIR

Baghrir is known as the “Hundreds holes pancake”, sounds like an exotic 1001 nights desserts, no? Well I think baghrir is just the coolest of the pancakes.  

Moroccan Pancake has a smoothy texture, it feels light and tender and the most special thing about it, is the unique topping/pancake combination we experience while savouring them.

Because of the yeast present in the recipe, as soon as the batter hits the pan, tiny holes start appearing on the pancake.

The holes, they are magic, they catch the topping and absorb it, allowing your pancake and your topping to become one yummy and tasty treat.

Makes about 15 12 cm (5 inch) pancakes


  1. 250 gr of fine semolina
  2. 4 tablespoons plain flour (40 gr)
  3. 2 tablespoons caster sugar
  4. 1 heaped teaspoon yeast
  5. ½ teaspoon salt
  6. 500 ml warm water  
  7. 2 teaspoons baking powder


• In a blender put the semolina, flour, sugar, yeast and salt. Add the warm water and blend until there are no lumps and the batter is smooth.

• Add the baking powder and blend again for a few seconds. Leave the batter for 30 minutes to allow the yeast to proof and blend again for a few seconds.

• Grease a non-stick pan and place it over medium high heat. Wait for the pan to be very hot to start baking the pancakes, otherwise you won’t get many holes on your pancakes.

• Place a small amount of batter (as you would for any pancake) and leave the pancake until it is dried out. As soon as you place the batter on the pan, the batter should start bubbling 

and drying out. Once the baghrir is no longer wet, it would mean that it is cooked ( it takes about one minute ).
 The baghrirs are cooked only on one side. 

• Repeat until you've used all the batter.

• Don’t pile up your Moroccan pancakes while they are still hot, as they will stick to each other. If you want to pile them when they are hot, separate them with a tissue.

• Serve your Baghrirs with anything yummy, as the Nutella , Honey or Jam like with any other pancake!


 Try it , you will love it.
