Nigerian Pancake is very different from the regular pancake. This is the most balanced meal for breakfast as it is a blend of protein, carbohydrates, oil and vitamins. This is thinner, lighter, spicy and more savory than fluffy pancakes. The sugar, pepper and onion gives the pancake a sweet, slightly spicy and savory taste.   Nigerian Pancake also known as Diet can be perfect for breakfast or as a snack.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup plain flour

  • Break the 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 salt, sugar, minced/blended onions, pepper, salt, nutmeg and the milk.
  • Gradually add the water while stirring until the pancake batter is smooth with a runny consistency (a liquid blender would give the batter a very smooth consistency). The lighter the batter, the thinner the pancakes.
  • Set a frying pan over medium heat. Add a few drops of vegetable oil to grease the frying pan.
  • Pour some pancake batter into the frying pan. Tilt the pan so that the batter coats the surface of the pan evenly.
  • Cook on one side for 1 minute, shaking the pan from time to time till the pancake comes loose.
  • Flip the pancake so the other side can cook as well.
  • The pancake is done when both sides are light brown.
