Mofletta (Hebrew: מופלטה‎, also spelled Mufleta, Mofleta, Moufleta etc.) is a North African-Jewish pancake traditionally eaten during the Mimouna celebration, the day after Passover.[1]

Mofletta is a thin crêpe made from water, flour and oil. The dough is rolled out thinly and cooked in a greased frying pan until it is yellow-brown in color. It is usually eaten warm, spread with butter, honey, syrup or jam.[1][2]

The Mimouna holiday, brought to Israel by the Jewish communities of North Africa, notably Morocco, is celebrated immediately after Passover. In the evening, a feast of fruit, confectionery and pastries is set out for neighbors and visitors, and mofletta is one of the dishes traditionally served. [2]
