Almond Pancakes (Lahooh Bel Loaz)




  1. Dissolve one package of dry yeast in the 1/8 cup of water that is slightly cool to the touch, about 85 degrees F. Add 1/2 teaspoon of sugar to feed the yeast. Stir to dissolve yeast and sugar. It will take about 10 minutes until the yeast begins to bubble or foam. If it does not foam it is not alive and should not be used.
  2. Put the flour in a bowl; add the milk, eggs, baking powder and yeast mixture; mix together to form a batter; set aside to rise.
  3. Grease a frying pan with a little oil; pour into the pan half a ladle of batter. Spread the batter quickly into a thin pancake and fry over medium heat until the top bubbles, then turn over and brown the other side. Repeat using all batter. Mix the sugar, cardamom and almonds together. Stuff each pancake with the mixture; roll into finger shapes, and arrange on a serving dish; sprinkle with some ground almonds.

Serves 10 to 12.
