So my daughter is a westerner and sometimes I fail to consider that. When she was 4 years old, she was introduced to what I call ‘flat cakes’ which she knows as pancakes – the western version.
She fell in love with it because of course it comes dripping with syrup and that’s exactly what someone with a sweet tooth will easily gravitate towards.
So you can imagine that trying to introduce her to the African pancake was not a much welcomed idea considering that it was less sugary and no syrup allowed.
I knew I needed to do something to spice up the pancake and a friend of mine came to my aid.
She suggested that I could add ripe bananas to the flour mixture for a sweeter taste. Who knew that one banana was all I needed to turn over staycation into an unforgettable family time..
