mofletta -

Mofletta (Hebrew: מופלטה, also Mufleta, Mofleta, Moufleta etc.) is a North African Jewish pancake usually eaten at the Mimouna celebration, the day after the Jewish Passover.

Mofletta is a crêpe made from water, flour and oil. The daest is rolled and cooked in a frying pan until brownish yellow. The hidanagn is usually eaten at the time only, with smeared butter, honey, syrup, jam, walnuts, pistachio and dried fruits.

The Mimouna holiday, brought to Israel by the Jewish community of North Africa, primarily Morocco, is celebrated just after the Jewish Passover. In the afternoon, fruits, sweets and pastries are served to neighbors and visitors, and mofletta is one of the dishes usually served.
