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.

Moroccan Meloui/Moroccan Round Pancakes/Melwi

Moroccan cuisine is typically a mix of Arabic, Andalusian, Berber and Mediterranean cuisines with a slight European and Subsaharan influence. And i love their cuisine very much, obviously if i get a chance to cook their dishes at home, i wont hesitate a second to prepare them at home. Am kick starting this week's blogging marathon with 'Moroccan Special' as theme. For the first day of this week's blogging marathon, i couldnt resist to prepare this super flaky round pancakes aka Meloui/Melwi.Moroccan Meloui is a flaky pancakes prepared prominently with fine semolina and all purpose flour with yeast. Once kneaded as dough and doubled in volume, this yeasted dough is flattened as much as thin. The meloui dough calls the rolling and layering as much as like South Indian parottas.

Whipped Cream Pound Cake

After an eggless Pistachio pound cake and a gorgeous Marble pound cake, i couldnt stop myself to prepare a super rich pound cake with whipped cream. And this cake is neither eggfree nor butter free, not to forget that this pound cake also goes for whipped cream. Obviously a rich pound cake to try and the texture of this cake will be super moist and dense And everyone at home enjoyed thoroughly this cake. Beating eggs with sugar for a long until they turns creamy makes the magic in this cake. Trust me, one cant stop just with a slice, yes this cake is dangerously addictive and believe me, a loaf of this pound cake gets vanished very much quickly than you can imagine.
