Moroccan Honeycomb pancakes are one of my favorite recipes. It’s such a unique pancake recipe, it will definitely blow your tastebuds.
Moroccan honeycomb pancakes – Bghrir
These Moroccan honeycomb pancakes are characterized by having billion of tiny holes on their surface.
If you are suffering from Trypophobia, these pictures might make you feel uncomfortable. Please know that I am sorry about that, but I couldn’t resist sharing this recipe!
The tiny holes are the result of a mix of baking powder and active dry yeast which gives them their characteristic look.
They are only cooked on one side which makes them extra fluffy and light.
They are also naturally vegan!
Honeycomb pancakes also called “Bghrir” are usually served for breakfast. They are typically served with honey and melted butter.
I prefer mine with maple syrup and crushed nuts!! You can go as crazy as you want with the topping (fruits, nut butter, jam, chocolate, whipped cream, anything really …)
These Moroccan honeycomb pancakes are light, fluffy, chewy, and super soft.
