(Lahooh Bel Loaz)
4 cups flour
1 cup milk
1 cup confectioner's sugar
3 tablespoons corn oil
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 cups almonds, roasted and ground
Put the flour in a bowl, add the
milk, eggs, baking powder, yeast and water; mix together to form a batter; set aside to rise. Grease a frying pan with a little
oil, pour into the pan half a ladle of batter. Spread the batter quickly into a thin pancake and fry over medium heat until
the top bubbles, then turn over and brown the other side. Repeat using all batter. Mix the sugar, cardamom and almonds together.
Stuff each pancake with the mixture; roll into finger shapes, and arrange on a serving dish; sprinkle with some ground almonds.
Serves 10-12 persons.
