How to Make Nigerian Pancake

Published

on

Ingredients

  • 1 cup | (150g) of plain flour
  • 2 medium eggs
  • ½ cup (125 mls) of evaporated milk (Peak or Carnation are common in Nigeria)
  • 2 tablespoons of margarine
  • 1 cup (250 mls) of water
  • ¼ teaspoon of salt
  • 6 teaspoons of sugar (or to taste)
  • Ground Chilli Pepper (to taste)
  • Vegetable oil

 

Before you fry the pancake

  1. Put the margarine is a small bowl and melt in the microwave. You can also place the bowl in a bigger bowl of hot water to melt the margarine.
  2. Break the two eggs into the melted margarine and beat till smooth. Then add ½ cup of water.
  3. Add the flour and mix well till there are minimal lumps.
  4. Add the milk, salt, sugar, ground pepper and the remaining ½ cup of water, stir well.
  5. Blend the mix using a liquid blender. This will give the pancake batter the smoothest consistency. If you don’t want to blend it, no problem, just mix the ingredients very well so that the lumps are minimal.

    Note: You can also add onions to the pancake but make sure that your blender can liquefy the onions. If not, the pieces of onions will not let you achieve very thin pancakes.

Directions

  1. Set a frying pan over medium heat. Add a few drops of vegetable oil. Just enough to lubricate the frying pan.
  2. When hot, pour some pancake batter into the frying pan. Tilt the pan so that the batter coats the surface of the pan evenly. This should be a very thin coat.
  3. Fry the underside of the pancake for approximately 1 minute, shaking the pan from time to time till the pancake comes loose. You can also loosen it with the spatula. Check the underside to be sure it has browned to your liking, preferably light brown.
  4. Flip the pancake so you can fry the top side as well.
  5. The pancake is done when both sides are light brown.

Thiacry yogurt with millet

Published

on

By

For about 8 to 10 glasses of thiakry

Ingredients :

300g of thiakry in sachet
2 tablespoons butter
A handful of raisins
5 tablespoons orange blossom
1kg of white cheese (curd)
5 sachets of vanilla sugar
1 jar of unsweetened concentrated milk (about 400g)
Sugar: at will (I put about 8 tablespoons)
You can also add grated coconut. For the recipe, 3 tablespoons grated coconut should be enough.
1 pinch nutmeg (optional).

Preparation :

To prepare the thiacry you have three possibilities:
– Boil 40cl of water, and add in a container containing thiacry. Leave to stand for about 15 minutes until the water is completely absorbed and the thiacry grains soften.
– Place the thiacry in a bowl that can go to the microwave and add 40cl of water. Leave to cook for 10 to 15 minutes in a microwave. Add a little water and lengthen the cooking time if necessary. At the end of cooking the water must completely evaporate and the grains of thiacry must soften.
– Thoroughly wet the thiacry and set aside. Boil water in the pot of a cousscoussier. Add the wet thiacry to the cousscoussier. Leave to cook for about 15 minutes, until the beans are cooked (soft).

Once the thiacry is cooked, add the butter. Mix well. Add raisins, grated coconut and a pinch of nutmeg. Mix. Cover the thiacry with a light towel and set aside.

Prepare the milk sauce that accompanies the thiacry as follows.
In a large salad bowl, add the white cheese (soow in Wolof) or curd. Add powdered sugar (at will), vanilla sugar and orange blossom. Mix.
Add the concentrated milk, either in full, or just to get the consistency you want. About myself I put all the milk jug concentrated.
Mix well. Taste and add, if necessary, sugar, vanilla sugar, orange blossom, etc.
Cover the salad bowl and chill until ready to serve.

When serving, gradually add thiacry to the milk bowl until it has the desired consistency. Mix.
Serve in glasses or small bowls.
I added over some raisins just for presentation

This weekend, I looked for a fun and easy cake to make that would ooh and aah my guests. I really wanted to make a cake that did not require a lot of time and effort, because I had other time- consuming recipes to make

Ingredients
1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
2 cups sugar
2 extra large eggs
3 extra large eggs yolk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon pure almond flavor
1½ cups sour cream
3 cups Cake flour
2 ¼ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon baking soda
½ tsp salt
3 tbsp cocoa powder (use a good brand it makes all the difference)
3 tbsp hot water
1 teaspoon instant coffee powder
Instructions
Preheat oven to 325 degrees grease and flour a 10 inch tube pan .Set aside
Mix together cake flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda
In a large mixing bowl, cream butter, and sugar together using a mixer for about 2 minutes, then add sour cream beat until light and fluffy. It will take approximately 4-5 minutes altogether.
Beat eggs and egg yolk in a separate bowl , and then add flour mixture and the egg mixture alternating between the both of them, beginning and ending with the flour to the butter mixture.
Stir in the vanilla and the almond extracts, scrape down the sides of the mixing bowl.
In a small bowl, mix the cocoa powder, coffee and hot water together to make a smooth chocolate paste
Fold in the chocolate paste with about ⅓ of the cake batter. Mix well until fully incorporated, alternating spoon vanilla and chocolate layers into prepared pan to simulate a checkerboard.
With a large spoon, cut and twist through batters to obtain marbled effect. Tap the pan firmly to remove air pockets.
Bake cake until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean, 45–50minutes. Transfer to a wire rack. Let cake cool in pan for 10 minutes

Banana Oat Cookies

Published

on

By

Ingredients

11/3 cups of Oat (Quaker oats would work)

1 mashed ripe banana

1 egg

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Handful of raisins

1 tablespoon of sugar

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

For variety

Handful of M&M’s

Handful of Coconut flakes

Method

Whisk your egg and add your vanilla. Mix them with the banana and raisins.

Add the dry ingredients and mix all together.

Heat up your oven to 350 F and either grease a pan or use parchment paper on foil paper so it does not stick.

Scoop your mixture onto the foil. If you are mixing the cookies with M&M’s or coconut flakes, this would be the time to roll the mixture in them. Feel free to make your cookies flatter. I made mine chunky because I love chewy chunky cookies.

Bake for 10 minutes on one side, turn them over and bake for 10 more minutes. Serve warm with tea.
