If you love baklava, now you can have it for breakfast! We jazz up store bought pancake mix by topping it with a walnut-pistachio mixture and a healthy drizzle of honey.

What is baklava

Baklava is an amazing dessert that is popular in the Middle East, Turkey, and Greece. It is a dessert pastry filled with nuts. It consists of layers of buttery phyllo dough that is sweetened with honey or simple syrup.  Every region has their version of baklava. We love making baklava with just walnuts but some people do pistachios, or a combination of both.

How to make a baklava skillet pancake

  1. In the bowl of a food processor add walnuts, pistachios, and sugar. Pulse until finely chopped.
  2. In a mix bowl add pancake mix, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, water, and 1 tbsp ghee or melted butter. Gently whisk until combined. Do not overmix, it’s okay if it has some lumps.
  3. In a 10-inch skillet spread 1/4 cup ghee or melted butter. Add pancake mix.
  4. Top with walnut-pistachio mixture. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 15-20 minutes or until cooked. Top with a healthy drizzle of honey and a dollop of creme fraiche.
