The basic pancake Nigerians are used to comprises of the normal pancake batter with a little bit of onion, pepper and sugar. My mum used to make it a whole lot when my siblings and i were quite young and it was always a hit every time with hot or cold beverage plus, it was an easy breakfast she could quickly whip up before heading to work. i remember back then, we'd sit around the kitchen with our plates in our hands waiting eagerly for momma to drop the hot pancakes in our plates. We also made sure we dug into the pancakes in the kitchen so we could ask for more once we had cleared the ones in our plates....lol!
Pancakes are quite versatile as some like theirs plain and some others prefer theirs with the added condiments which always gives the quick meal a nice distinct taste. #Easy-recipe, #Quick-breakfast, #healthy snacks for children, you'd definitely enjoy it ;).
