Yummy Nigerian Pancake Everyone’s Delight!

Hey lovelies, how are you doing? How was your weekend? Hope you enjoyed yourselves. Mine was good, I enjoyed myself with what I love doing, made yummy Nigerian pancake.

Over the weekend we enjoyed the yummy Nigerian pancake I made. Saturdays are for homemade yummy snacks like pancakes, also known as diet.

Pancake is a snack everyone delight, including me. When I was growing up, I religiously enjoyed it. We called it diet. It was indeed a diet I never missed during my primary and secondary school days.

I called it everyone’s delight because everyone I came  across so much loved it.

My kids don’t make friends whenever they have pancake in their hands, when they are done eating their pancake,they can then raise their heads to see who’s talking, lol! That’s to tell how much children enjoy it.

Yummy Nigerian pancake is everyone’s delight, both young and old enjoy it. It is a popular snack widely enjoyed by Nigerians.

It is shallow fried, not deep fried like the majority of Nigerian snacks. That is to say, is fried the  same way eggs are fried.

Nigerian pancake is majorly made with flour, eggs, evaporated or powdered milk flavor, pepper, onions, I added carrot, green pepper and nutmeg, trust natural ingredient, it took the pancake to another level. It was so tasty.

It’s a very nutritious breakfast snack everyone should learn to prepare.
