Custard-Filled Pancakes (Atayef)

12 pancakes
Prep time: Cook time: Total time:


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • [1/2] cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • [1/2] cup water
  • 1 tsp. active dry yeast
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • [1/2] tsp. salt
  • 2 TB. sugar
  • 2 cups Ashta Custard (recipe later in this chapter)
  • [1/2] cup ground pistachios
  • 1 cup Simple Syrup (recipe later in this chapter)


In a large bowl, whisk together all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, whole milk, water, yeast, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Set aside for 30 minutes.

Preheat a nonstick griddle over low heat.

Spoon 3 tablespoons batter onto the griddle, and cook pancake for about 30 seconds or until bubbles form along entire top of pancake. Do not flip over pancake. You're only browning the bottom.

Transfer pancake to a plate, and let cool while cooking remaining pancakes. Do not overlap the pancakes while letting them cool.

Form pancake into a pocket by folding pancake into a half-moon, and pinch together the edges, but only halfway up.

Spoon Ashta Custard into a piping bag or a zipper-lock plastic bag, snip off the corner, and squeeze about 2 tablespoons custard into each pancake pocket. Sprinkle custard with pistachios.

Serve pancakes chilled with Simple Syrup drizzled on top.

Tasty Tip
For best results, refrigerate the filled pancakes for 2 hours before serving. This firms them a bit.
