 Pancake roll by Dinma
 This is my first time posting a recipe on this blog. I'm sure you all have been enjoying the recipes by my sister,Omalicha• This is my own version of the popular pancake rolls. You won't believe how many neighbors came over for
this. Enjoy!

flour.                                »750g

sugar.                               »250g

Eggs.                                »10 eggs

milk.                                  »250g

mayo.                                »400ml jar

sausages.                          »2 packs

cabbage.                            »1 big head

carrot.                                »6

lemon zest.                    »Just 4rm 1 lemon

nutmeg.                        »1

freshly squeezed lemon juice.        »From 1

mixed fruits/raisins.                     »Half pack

pepper.                                   »Just enough

Onion.                         »2 medium bulbs

vegetable oil.              »Half cup

wash and everything. I grated the skin of the lemon to get the zest and squeezed out the juice.

pour your raisins in a bowl,add water and leave to rise.

In a clean pot,preheat your oil,add pepper nd onion,stir fry. Add 1 seasoning cube. when fried,add your sausages,and carrot. cook for 2 mins and set aside.

Mix your mayo with about 50g of sugar,till its completely smooth and looks like pap.

Mix your mayo with diced cabbage,put in the fridge to cool

Mix your flour,sugar,lemon zest,lemon juice,grated nutmeg,milk together.

Make a hole in the middle of this mixture and add your egg. gently fold together. add water,till you have a fairly thick liquid.

Add your raisins including the water you soaked it in. mix properly.

In a clean pan,put just enough oil to wet the pan. about one tablespoon,when hot pour half a cup of your pancake mix and fry away. we all know how to fry pancakes right?

To roll,put your cabbage,and sausage sauce,on one side of the pancake,carefully roll from that side,and hold with a toothpick. repeat this process,till you have rolled everything. I was able to make 30 rolls from what I had.

    I really dnt like chicken franks so wat can i use as subtitute? Aunty Eya pls post my email i want to go to d hospital tmrw.thanks

    1. If u don't like chicken francs, hotdogs,beef sausage,even mince meat will do d same job.

    Yum yum! Nice one Dinma. Ehen! :D so i made ofe onugbu(bitterleaf soup) yesterday thanks to the onugbu recipe posted last week. Ogiri smells horrible!! I almost didn't want to use it, plz is there anything special abt adding ogiri?

    1. Well I think ogiri is to cocoyam based soups(oha,onigbu) what eggs are to cake. That's d real deal!

  4. Now, this is what we are talkin about... Correct african woman wey fit cook anything, not that chicken-fray that can't boil water cos she went to school in jupiter!

    Dinma, Nwayi Oma... Jis'ike!

    This Ace ehn? Making mouth as if he can cook ordinary indomie sef. Hisssssss

  6. Wallai... Cooking is my no 1 hobby. No questions, I do it with ease. But it surprises me when an african woman can't!

    It baffles me when I come across young ladies saying they can't cook with a reason that seems rational to them.

    @anon 9:00... Lemme share some of my favorite soup I make effortlessly!

    Ogbono, Stew, Ewedu, Gbegiri, Ofe Nsala, Vegetable, Egusi, Black Soup (my native soup), Amoriri (also native), Okro.

    I also make fried and jollof rice, Gravy, salad, chicken and chips and many can't remember! No assumptions, these are stuff's I've don't time after time.

    I also made pancake rolls yesterday but added tuna to my cabbage was really nice and my boyfriend loved it. While eating, we were already planning I will use shredded chicken next time.

    1. Omo gidi.... Ku ise!

      Don't be like madam covenant university!

    2. Tuna aint a bad idea I made the pancake for a church event, and some people don't really like fish and my cousin is allergic to fish so I put that into consideration! If I will have to use fish would use mackerel(titus).

    3. Ace,warn urself oh!she did not mention d name of her sch btw no b only covenant uni no dey allow cookin.
      Dinma,weldone-not a fan of pancakes but am tempted to try 1 more time...

    Soooo lovely!pls more info on d lemon zest.can one use lime if lemon isn't available.dnt tink we hav dat real yellow coloured lemon.

  14. Anonymous11/18/2013

    Your pancakes look good and inviting. However, try using raw egg white to stick them together, Instead of using a tooth pick. Its a better presentation I think.

    1. Anonymous11/18/2013

      you want her to serve raw egg white? Remember no frying after rolling the pancakes. I think what she did with d toothpick is great.

  15. Anonymous11/20/2013

    I just tire,which one b raw egg again naw?biko d lemon zest n d rest ingredient do,.....d toothpick worked well,cos na lil mistake sey cause running stomach........hor! Sheezy.

  16. Anonymous11/20/2013

    Understanding is the key thing here; you use raw egg white to stick dough together. I mean the same thing glue or water gum does to paper. U won't taste it in the food. Try it. Maybe I should ve explained better. I'm sorry

    1. Anonymous11/21/2013

      My dia, no be taste matter we talk o. Raw eggs could carry harmful germs and really shouldn't be used in food except it is to be cooked again. I understand your point about presentation, but hygiene and health trump presentation any day.

  17. Anonymous11/21/2013

    How many pancake rolls will these measured ingredients (in your recipe) make? It looks like you made a whole lot and I need to make just a fraction of this. If you tell me how many you made, I can approximate the quantity of ingredients that will be adequate for me.

    Dis is gr8.
