Type Pancake
Region or state North Africa
Main ingredients Semolina, often raisins

Baghrir (or beghrir) is an ancient Berber pancake originating in North Africa. They are small, spongy and made with semolina or flour; when cooked correctly, they are riddled with tiny holes (which soak up whatever sauce they are served with). The most common way to eat baghrir in Morocco and Algeria is by dipping them in a honey-butter mixture, but they can also be cut into wedges and served with jam. It is common to add raisins to the pancake as well. Baghrir are popular for breakfast, as a snack and for iftar during Ramadan.[1]
