HEALTHY EATING ~ Naija Style 🍽

Hi guys👋
It’s been a while.
Today we’re gonna be looking at a quick, easy and fluffy breakfast known as the Nigerian Pancake.

So what’s a Nigerian Pancake?
It’s a French version of pancakes personalized to suit our Nigerian taste buds, with the following ingredients:

  • 150g plain flour
  • Sugar (to taste)
  • 1 teaspoonful of baking powder (optional)
  • A pinch of ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon of salt
  • 1 tablespoon of minced onions
  • 2 medium eggs
  • ½ cup evaporated milk
  • 2 tablespoons of melted butter/margarine
  • Ground chilli pepper (to taste)
  • Vegetable oil
  • 1 cup of Water.

Actually we love it a bit spicy. You can also add other spices if you want.
Step 1

  • Put margarine in small bowl. Place in a bigger bowl of hot water to melt the margarine.
  • Break two eggs into the melted margarine and beat till smooth. Then add ½ cup of water.
  • Add the flour and mix well till there are minimal lumps.
  • Add the milk, salt, sugar, baking powder, ground nutmeg, ground pepper, onion and the remaining ½ cup of water, stir well until there are no lumps. Or better still, use a liquid blender to give your batter the smoothest consistency.

Step 2

  • Place a little oil in a non-stick pan, spread the oil with a brush to grease the whole surface and heat up until hot.
  • Using a ladle, scoop some of the pancake batter and pour into the hot pan. Gently tilt the pan, so the batter can coat the surface of the pan evenly.
  • Cook one side of the pancake for a few seconds, then flip over and cook the other side.
  • Place the pancake on a plate. Add some honey or just roll it like a swiss roll (which ever way you want) and serve.

There you go. You have a healthy and lovely breakfast, and you are ready to break your fast! 😉
