Plantain Pancake

Making Plantain Pancakes is another way to use up overripe (black)plantains, but you can also make use of the ripe (yellow) ones too.

Plantains are rich in minerals(potasium, magnesium, iron, phosphorous), Vitamins(A, B6  and C) and fiber and taste really good.

I love plantains and can eat it all day :)

Plantain pancakes are simply delicious and I'm sure you'll enjoy them too. 


Ingredients for Plantain Pancakes 
Makes about 16-20 pancakes

 - 2 Ripe/overipe Plantains
- 200 gr Plain Flour or Wheat flour
- 2 raw Eggs

- 2 to 3 tablespoonful evaporated milk or powdered milk or condensed milk
-  1to 2 Tablespoonful Sugar
- 100ml Water (more or less)
- Chili pepper or Scotch bonnet(atarodo)  (to taste)
- 1 tablespoonful Onions (minced)(to taste)
- A pinch of Salt

- A pinch of grated nutmeg(optional)
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder or baking soda(to make it fluffy)
- 2 to 3 tablespoonful vegetable oil (for greasing the pan)


Tip: you can substitute the water in the recipe for whole milk


Preparation

* Mash the plantains until smooth and without lumps
To get a smooth consistency, you can puree in a blender or mix the mashed plantains thoroughly with a little water, pass it through a tight sieve and mash any lumpy plantains with a spoon.
 
*Break the eggs into a wide bowl,add the milk,sugar and mashed or blended plantains, mix together using a whisk or a fork.

* Add the grated nutmeg(optional), the minced onions, pepper and salt.


* Gradually sift in the baking soda and flour and keep on whisking. The mixture would begin to thicken and look lumpy.

* Add the water and continue stirring until the pancake batter is smooth with a runny consistency, but not too watery.

Leave the batter to rest for 15 minutes.

Tip: Note that the lighter you make the batter, the thinner the pancakes will turn out

* Pour a little oil on a pan, enough to grease the pan; spread the oil with a brush to grease the whole surface and heat up until hot.

Tip:  A non-stick pan is highly recommended for this.

* Using a ladle(soup spoon), scoop up some of the pancake batter and pour into the hot pan. 

  Gently tilt the pan, so that the batter can evenly coat the surface of the pan.

* Cook one side of the Pancake (on low heat) for a few seconds;
as you begin to see air bubbles and the sides of the pancake turning dark;flip over and cook the other side.

   Repeat this process for the remaining pancake batter. Always grease the pan before use.
Serve and Enjoy!   
 Tip : You can also puree all the ingredients in a blender and cook as written above.
 
Plantain Pancake can be enjoyed as a snack with a chilled drink or as a breakfast/dinner meal with a cool/hot beverage.

  11. Wow! I tried it out today and it was nice! Got my brothers waiting on the pan for the next pancake to fry! They normally are very pessimistic about tryn out new foods esp if its nw a seemingly odd combo ( e.g plantain + pancake) Ah!!! They wont even taste it! So i locked them out of the kitchen! Told them its cos i'm adding a secret ingredient. I did all thw mashing and blending and quickly cleaned up all traces of plantain... After tasting the first pancake, i had them guessing... Surely they could never guess right. I revealed my secret ingredient nd it was a welcome innovation!! Thanks Nky!

    1. Hi dearie if you followed the recipe ''as it is'' you are not supposed to have problems, pls go over it and find out where you went wrong.

    2. Sometimes it could be the pan that makes it not hold together. I have one of those pans that I don't use for pancake frying at all! For the best results, use a non-stick pan.

    3. thanks for helping out Hannah, that might also be the reason.

    4. I also tried the recipe eventually, and they were scrumptious! My only issue was with the colour of my pancakes being more of a brown-brown, and not a golden brown like in the pictures here. Now I want to try them again, and I think I'll blend the plantains this time for a smoother consistency.

    5. Hi dearie, I am glad you enjoyed the recipe. I think mine came out lighter because I used a mixture of ripe and unripe plantains. And yes, using a blender yields a smoother batter.
