Rose Water or Orange Blossom Pancakes

This is a nice change from your ordinary pancake. The cardamon goes nicely with the rose water while the cinnamon is a nice addition to the orange blossom water. Note: I have not tried this recipe. It seems that it batter would be dry the way it is listed. Water may need to be added to the mixture.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the flour, baking powder, cardamon (or cinnamon), sugar, and salt in medium bowl.
  2. Beat the egg, honey, rose water (or orange blossom water) and oil together in small bowl. Then combine the egg mixture with the dry ingredients. Stir until well blended.
  3. Note: 1/2-1 cup of water may need to be added to the batter to get the right consistency.
  4. Pour a small amount of almond oil onto griddle then heat. Ladle a small amount of the batter onto the griddle.
  5. Smooth into a circle then fry until bubbles appear and edges are dry. Flip over & continue to cook until the other side has turned golden.

Nice I used a buckwheat pancake mix to be gluten free and just followed the box on liquid amounts so they were perfect that way. I also combined this recipe with Healthy, Vegan and Terrific Strawberry Pancakes using rose water, freshly ground cardamom and unpasturised local liquid honey. I had to cook them in canola oil as I didn't have any almond oil but I think that would taste delicious. Made for RAMADAN TAG 2012!

I like the taste and smell of orange blossom water so I decided to do the pancakes with that and the cinnamon. Great mix. But I'm curious to try orange blossom water with cardmom. Maybe it would be great. I had to add the 1 cup of water to have a good consistancy. I made beautiful pancakes. And they taste great. Thanks Nasseh :) Made for Ramadan tag game

These were delicious but I don't know if I did something wrong. I cut the recipe to make 3 pancakes and aside from using Splenda for the sugar I followed the recipe. It was very thick so I started adding more orange water a bit at a time. When I had used more than double the amount ask for I thought that maybe it was supposed to be thick since the directions say "Smooth into a circle". Then I couldn't get them to brown even though they were well cooked. I'd like to try this again making the batter thin enough to pour into a circle.
