Many Nigerians love pancake. It’s usually Saturday morning’s breakfast in my home and my family looks forward to it. I usually make pancake by hand because that’s how I learnt to make it. Quite frankly, it never occurred to me that I could make it any other way, until recently. I stumbled on an article from Dooney’s Kitchen that showed me how it worked. Since the honourable members of the stress-free cooking club will fine me if I failed to try it, I just had to experiment. Needless to say, the result was amazing. That’s why I’m sharing it with you today.

Meanwhile, unsalted butter, nutmeg, vanilla flavour and orange are a few extra additions to today’s pancake. These ingredients made the pancake extra yummy. I encourage you to try not only this recipe but this method of pancake making as well. I’m sure they’ll make your pancake experience delightful.
330 grams of all-purpose flour
140 grams of sugar
1 cup of milk
Diced scotch bonnet pepper
2 tablespoons of unsalted butter
A dash of vanilla
Two pinches of ground nutmeg
A pinch of salt
A zest of orange
How to Prepare
Measure out all the ingredients. Use a grater to zest the orange. Please note that all that’s needed in the orange is the orange skin and you can get this by running the orange lightly through the grater. Keep it light; if you apply pressure, you’ll get the lower layer which is bitter. When you’re done zesting, use a toothpick to pick out the bits that are stuck in the grater.

Add all the wet ingredients to the blender. Then add the dry ingredients but leave out the flour and salt. Whizz the ingredients in a blender for a few seconds.
Divide the flour into portions and add it to the blender, a portion at a time until it’s finished. Then blend in a pinch of salt and your batter is ready.
I’m sure we can all agree that this is a pretty easy and stress-free method. Anyway, now that your pancake batter is ready, get out your frying pan. Add oil to it and fry away. Lol.
In case you don’t know, a pancake is best served hot.
