Then add milk and egg and pulse several times until all the ingredients have thoroughly come together

Add the plantain puree into the flour mix… Combine througly with a laddle, add the water, mix( add more water if need be, a little at a time)

Add the chopped onion

Heat a skillet or a non stick frying pan then lightly coat the hot pan with vegetable oil, cooking spray, or butter.

Then pour about a ½ cup of batter depending on your fry pan or skillet. Tilt pan so the batter spreads across the bottom of the pan, or use your laddle to spread. (my batter was a bit thicker than the usual nigerian pancakes) – my preference though. It was so chewy and yum😋

Cook the pancake for about 1 minute on each side, or until the bottom is light brown.
