Alright fam, this dessert is probably the most delicious dessert you will ever have. Ok, I might be biased because I grew up on it but you definitely want to give it a try!
This dessert is THE traditional Ramadan desert served in many Arab homes, particularly those originally from Syria, Palestine, Jordan, and Lebanon. One of the reasons I love this dessert is because you can control the sugar content. The dough is unsweetened, the stuffing is only lightly sweetened but it gets its sweetness from the sugar syrup you put on top. So you can put a lot, a little, or none at all!
This dessert is traditionally deep fried but I love it baked with just a bit of oil either sprayed or brushed on. For a step by step in pics, check out the highlights on my Instagram feed!
You can stuff these with either a sweet cheese (found at Arab stores) or a sweetened crushed walnut mix (finely crushed walnuts + a bit of sugar + some cinnamon).
Alright on to the recipe! This makes about 15 – 3″ pancakes.
Enjoy. So much.
