Mourad's Moroccan Pancake Mix

In Morocco, the airy crepe-like pancakes known as Beghrir are a popular treat at breakfast and snack time. Moroccan-born chef, Mourad Lalou of San Francisco's award-winning Aziza Restaurant, has simplified the task of making these traditional griddle cakes at home with an easy-to-use mix of essential ingredients. Using techniques learned from his mother, Mourad developed his mix exclusively for Williams-Sonoma using a blend of wheat and semolina flours with a dash of turmeric and a small amount of yeast. To make the pancakes in your own kitchen, you need only activate the yeast, then combine it with the mix, warm milk and sugar. Spoon the batter onto a hot griddle, cooking them only on one side, just as they do in Morocco, and leaving plenty of tiny holes on the other side for soaking up lots of butter and honey or jam. Makes approximately 18 crepes (23.2 oz.). Made in USA. A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.

Decent enough
August 6, 2013
I had a decent experience. In my box the yeast was not overpowering. However, there was not much flavor in the pancake itself. It is the topping that really adds the flavor.
Pros: Texture, Easy to Prepare, Quality, Time-saver

A great savory pancake with butter and honey.
June 12, 2013
The pancakes were so easy to make! I followed the directions exactly and cooked them on one side. It was so amazing to see how the tops had symmetrical holes to accept the honey and butter I finished them with.

Gross! Do NOT recommend.
February 27, 2013
I usually love William Sonoma's food offerings and therefore was eager to try their Moroccan Pancake mix. However, these were inedible. I ended up throwing them out after frying up about 4 of them. No one in my family liked them and the kids refused to eat them. The problem is that this recipe requires yeast (which is included) and the yeast flavor is very strong in the pancake; giving them a strong bitter taste. I strongly do not recommend these. The "Golden Malted Pancake & Waffle Mix" is much much better. I will be switching back to it.
Cons: smell, Flavor
