Lemkhenfer/Moroccan Wheat Flour Pancakes

If you have tried already your hands with Baghrir aka Moroccan 1000holes pancakes, my today's recipe will definitely please you. Baghrir, these pancakes are prepared either with all purpose flour or fine semolina, however the authentic one always goes for the finest semolina. The speciality of this pancakes is they are cooked only on one side,this gives the light,soft,spongy,tender texture with a beautiful honeycomb like appearance to this delicious pancakes. But Lemkhenfer is as much as like younger sister to Baghrir. Baghrir are cooked on one side, while Lemkhenfer is cooked on both sides.These pancakes can be made in large quantity and can be conserved in fridge, but dont reheat it in microwave oven or a toaster, just heat them in a hot pan and enjoy.

Lemkhenfer, Moroccan Pancakes

Lemkhenfer calls for a different preparing process, usually for making pancake batter we usually put all the ingredients together in a bowl and mix everything to prepare a pancake batter. This pancakes are totally different, initially the flours mixture is kneaded as a dough, then slowly water is added and kneaded well until the dough turns as pancake batter. As like Baghrir, this Lemkhenfer is also yeasted pancakes, you can enjoy thoroughly this Moroccan pancakes with honey or else with butter, jam. We loved our Lemkhenfer with nutella, and this soft pancakes goes to this week's blogging marathon as am running with 'Moroccan Recipes' as theme.
