Egypt - Recipes

1 cup barley flour
1/4 cup water
1/3 cup honey
1 tablespoon oil

Mix and pour into a small oiled pan. Bake for 20-30 mins at 375F. It will be flat and dark when it is finished because barley doesn't rise and it darkens when it bakes. For a variation, try adding some raisins, as the Egyptians might have done. (Hart and Mantell - Pyramids!, pg 85)

Barley Cakes
1� cups barley flour (buy this at a health food store, or grind barley in mill or blender)
1 Tablespoon baking powder
� teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons honey
1 egg
1 cup milk
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil

Stir together barley flour, baking powder, and salt. Add egg, milk, honey, and oil and beat until mixed. Pour onto hot, greased frying pan and fry like pancakes until bubbles appear. Then turn and brown on the other side. Serve hot with butter and honey. You may add a few chopped dates or raisins as a variation.
