Recipe for Msmnen and Lentil Soup

Nothing like "fried pancakes" with soup!

sunny 78 °F

Msmnen (Those devilish fried pancakes I told you about…)

1 tsp yeast
1 tsp salt
3 cup of wheat flour
1 cup of cake flour
1 egg
1 cup milk
6 cubes sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
1/2 liter
1 tbl Baking soda
1 tsp vanilla

Dissolve sugar into 1/2 liter of warm water
Mix all ingredients into a large mixing bowl and slowly add warm water and sugar solution. Keep adding water until you can knead the mixture.
Knead dough for 5 minutes...basically until you feel like you can't knead anynmore!
Melt Butter and mix it with vegetable oil in small bowl
Squeeze dough into small balls…dip into butter/veggie oil mixture and smooth the oil along the seam in the dough from where it was squeezed
Place on baking sheet
Flatten balls into a thin pancake – spread with oil/butter mixture…fold pancake into three section (like a legal letter), then fold into third again until it looks like a square.
Heat skillet w/ vegetable oil
Flatten sqare dough down into larger square…add more butter
Fry in pan until it’s golden brown (both sides)
Hug your arteries later….enjoy now.
