During my varsity years ,there was a ‘‘kitchen debate” among my flat mates on whether or not, onions and peppers were required in Pancakes ;the first group would only use peppers in theirs’, while the other group won’t have pancakes without onions.

At the end it was finally concluded that these two ingredients (when added to taste) are what really gives the Nigerian Pancake it’s distinct and unique taste.

I always use onions and peppers in my Nigerian style pancakes and they always come out irresistible; you should try it out. Here’s an easy recipe, you’ll surely love. Enjoy!

– 190 gr Plain Flour

– 1 tablespoonful Onions (minced)(to taste)
– 1/4 teaspoon Salt
– A pinch of Nutmeg(optional)
– 1-2 tablespoonful vegetable oil (for greasing the pan)

* If you’re using evaporated milk, you can dilute with water or use it as it is(very rich)

*If using powdered milk, dissolve in 180 to 200ml water. Depending on how thick or thin you want your pancake to turn out.

*To mince the onion, you can pound it OR grate whole onions with the small sides of the grater or blend until smooth in a dry mill/blender

* Baking powder is not necessary in Nigerian pancake but if you want to add it for more fluff, then go ahead and add 1 teapoonful of baking powder.

Tip: The lighter you make the batter, the thinner the pancakes will turn out.

* Place a little oil on a pan (preferable a non-stick pan), spread the oil with a brush to grease the whole surface and heat up until hot.

* Using a ladle(soup spoon), scoop up some of the pancake batter and pour into the hot pan.
Gently tilt the pan, so that the batter can evenly coat the surface of the pan.

* Cook one side of the pancake for a few seconds, then flip over and cook the other side.
Tip : if you are in a hurry , use an electric whisk or pour all the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.

And that is how to make delicious Pancake in Nigeria. Then you are free to serve.
