“Bghrir” and Better Things

Hello Everyone! I am back this week with another recipe! This Moroccan “pancake” is a favorite during Ramadan. It is called bghrir, and it is a light fluffy honey soaked piece of heaven.

To get started, you’re going to need the following ingredients:

1 cup of fine semolina

4 Tbsp. of flour

1 tsp of yeast

A pinch of salt

1 ½ cups of warm water

2 Tbsp. of baking powder



Let’s get started!

Combine the semolina, flour, yeast, and salt into a mixing bowl. Add in the warm water and mix until you have a thin, liquid batter. Add the baking powder and continue to mix.  Over a high flame, take a ladle of the batter and heat it in a pan. Do not flip the pancake! Once it becomes porous, it is ready to remove from the pan.

In a saucepan, combine one part butter to two parts honey. Drizzle the mixture over the bghrir.

Enjoy with Moroccan mint tea!

This simple dish makes for a lovely breakfast or sweat snack. My boyfriend’s mother made these for me for the first-time last weekend. I knew immediately I wanted her to teach me the recipe. Luckily, it is super easy and will leave you feeling accomplished (and full)!

In other news, everything is going well with my class of young English learners for the most part. Today, in only my second week, I had to face one of the greatest challenges any teacher must face: bullying. One of my students wasn’t in class, and I was told after that his father called to report some of the other students had been making fun of him and calling him names during the break and after class. I immediately felt like a failure as a teacher. How could I let something like this happen??  I have decided to buckle down and be much stricter with my class rule of English only! Some of the problem came from me not understanding the name calling because it was done in a language I am not fluent in.  I guess these are things I must learn with time. I do hope that I can make my classroom both a fun and safe environment for language learning.

That is all for now! Please let me know if you try out this recipe! Have a great weekend and I will see you all next Friday! ❤
