I simply love my recent discovery with semovita. Semolina Pancake is now one of my go to breakfast items because it is easy and quick to make. Looking through my pantry I stumbled on a pack of semovita that has been lying there for some time now. For some reason I have slowed down on meals with ‘swallows’ which is why my semovita was still there. So I proceeded to try something interesting with it and that is how I standardised the recipe for semovita Pancake. By the way it took some trial and errors in terms of quantities. The ease of mixing this recipe is unbelievable. You can find other interesting Nigerian breakfast recipe like waina or moin moin on the blog.
One thing I can say is that going forward, I will hardly make my pancakes with plain flour it has to be Semolina Pancake. Just to make this recipe extra special I served with stir fry chicken breast made with suya spices, sliced scotch bonnet pepper and spring onion . I find butter a good choice in this recipe but you may wish to use margarine. I will like to receive your feed back on this recipe.
