This is a savoury pancake made with unusual traditional Nigerian ingredients, that create a flavourful and tasty pancake
  • I used the recipe for my mother's pancake HERE (except the butter and lemon rind)
  • 1 seasoning cube
  • Crayfish - ground or whole
  • Chopped Onions
  • Chopped ata rodo - scotch bonnet/habanero pepper
  1. Break the eggs into a blender, add milk and the crayfish
  2. Add Sugar, Salt, seasoning cubes, dry pepper, flour and blend till smooth
  3. Once the batter is smooth, pour into a bowl and add chopped onions and pepper
  4. Heat up a little oil in the frying pan, add a ladle spoonful and fry
  5. Because they are savoury pancakes, I though oooooh, I can make a simple sauce with chopped onions, chopped pepper, a little belnded pepper and whole crayfish. I tossed them around in a pan with a teaspoon of oil and poured over the pancakes.
