It is amazing how little this recipe has changed after 1800 years. The Roman Physician Galinos (129 – 99 ac) describes this sweet in his book with many details. Source:The Classical Cookbook, Andrew Dalby and Sally Grainger. Excelent source regarding Ancient Greek cuisine

I probably wouldn't rate this, except that I made it for ZWT4, and well, I want to get credit for effort! lol. I believe it can be good. Brooke the Cook in WI likes it! Zaar told me 4.25 oz of flour and 1 cup water. I judged that at a slightly heaping 1/2 cup of flour which did not give me the "pancake batter" Brooke spoke of in her review. So I added about 1/4 cup more flour. Then I found out I really need some practice making pancakes! lol. (That's a Daddy Job around here.) So, I thought they were kind of all right (kind a weird fried flour-and-water thing) and my 3-year-old gobbled one up! I will research my measurements and try these again. Probably just because "Meli" is honey and "Melissa" is honeybee! lol.
