How To Make Nigerian Pancakes


I cannot count the number of requests I’ve had to film my pancake recipe. There’s a particular lady that keeps sending me reminders for over 2 years now-I tried to search my inbox for her name but I can’t find it. You know who you are, this recipe is dedicated to you! LOL.

I call this the basic Nigerian pancake recipe-it’s just plain pancakes. Look out for my Pancake 2.0-that one na 9ja orisirisi pancake! LOL. For now enjoy this delicious recipe!

2 cups of flour
1 and 1/2 cups of water (use discretion too)
4 table spoons of Butter
1 cup of Milk
Sugar (Use discretion)
4 medium eggs
1/2 teaspoon of salt


  • Heat your butter to melt if it is still tough then place in a bowl that can contain your pancake mixture.
  • Whisk and add 4 medium eggs to the butter then mix, don’t worry if it looks a bit lumpy.
  • Add 2 cups of flour then add 1 and 1/2 cups of water (use discretion for this water-it can determine how thick or thin your pancake gets)
  • Add 1 cup of milk, 1/2 tablespoon of salt and then sugar to make it as sweet as you want.
  • It’s not Nigerian pancake if it does not have pepper in it oh so add as much or as little pepper as you want.
  • Mix everything together till it is a but smooth-the little lumps are butter will melt when you make the pancakes.
  • Heat a small frying pan and add a teaspoon of oil or spray the pan with butter.
  • Pour in a little portion of the batter and leave for the bottom to become solid, that’s when you’ll know it’s cooked.
    • Flip the pancake to the other side, and keep flipping till you achieve your desired brownness.
