Wow, 70 minutes prep time for the African pancakes! I don't think so. But, they do sound and look delicious! My Fall crop of red raspberries are coming on bountifully. They go well with just about anything.

The African pancakes seem very similar to Swedish pancakes as well. Mmmmm. With lingonberries....(drooling.)

Thank you Joan. This is a lot like French crepes; especially the cooking.

  3. Heat a skillet or a non stick frying pan then lightly coat the hot pan with vegetable oil, cooking spray, or clarified 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. Cook the pancake for about 2 minutes, until the bottom is light brown.

You have to oil the pan for the first pancake, however, you do not have to do the same for the rest

No recipe Pat. The Luo are basicly from Nanza in western Kenya, not  far from lake Victoria. My mother in law is about 20 miles from the Ugandan border. You may be right on the flour used. All i cn suggest is take what I have said so far and Google it.

Michael, I was looking for a map of the geographical area of the Luo. It appears to be in western Kenya. I'm curious. Do you have the recipe for you wife's pancake, or a link to a website that features it? And, is this a made from teff flour? Similar to Ethiopian Injera?

Bertold, why am I not surprised that the Spam "poetry" site is part of  (Coulda been created by CalTech undergrads, too....)

My wife makes African pancakes. They are much like ours but more nutritious. You role them up like a tortilla and eat them with tea or coffee. This would be a typical Luo breakfast.

In fifth grade when I was 10 years old, we learned about the haiku and were given the assignment to compose one and to make a watercolor painting depicting our haiku. To this day, I still remember my haiku:

Lazy drowsy cow
Standing in the green pasture
Munching grass all day.

Funny, the small things we remember from childhood.

Bertold, I love the spam haiku.
