Tired of the regular Nigeria breakfast? Try this cheap home made pancakes

Pancakes are a much loved food in our home. We have them regularly for both breakfast and dinner (add some scrambled eggs and fruit and you have a pretty great meal!). I always have the ingredients for pancakes on hand and they are so easy to mix up – and if you have a bunch of hungry teenagers like I do you can feed everyone for pennies!

Servings: 10 pancakes


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup sugar

1 1/4 cups whole milk

1 egg

3 tablespoons unsalted butter melted

1 tsp vanilla extract optional


Melt the butter set aside.

In a medium bowl, mix together flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder.

Stir milk and egg together.

Create a well in the center of the flour mixture.

Pour the butter, vanilla, and milk mixture into the well.

Use a wire whisk to stir everything together until just combined. It will be slightly thick and lumpy, but should be well incorporated.

Allow the batter to rest while heating a lightly oiled skillet or griddle to medium high heat.

Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake.

Cook each side for 3-6 minutes, until lightly golden brown.
