This is delicious! Found it to be a bit time consuming but worth it! I waited to heat the oil once the dough was ready, next time I'll heat the oil while preparing the dough. I used a sauce pan with 6 cups of oil, but they kept sticking to the bottom. We just lifted them up gently and that was fine, but wondering if that is normal or if there is a way to prevent that! Thanks for the recipe! AWESOME flavor!
LOVE this recipe! My husband is Samoan, and he loves it too. However, I tried making them like regular pancakes once (in a frying pan just coated with veg. oil) and they turned out AMAZING! Crispy on the outside, perfectly melt in your mouth in the middle. They are hard to flip, but if you can master that, they will be the best pancakes you've ever had! We serve them with melted butter, strawberries, and powdered sugar.
The moment I saw this recipe I had to try it! Growing up my mom made us panikeke for breakfast or just as a snack, minus the bananas. This was my first attempt to make panikeke and it was a hit with my kids!!! This recipe is great and I will definitely be making more again in the near future...
these were amazing. Love the banana flavor. I expect for my family to request these quite frequently. The entire batch was gone in 1 hour
My husband is Samoan and I surprised him with these on fathers day and we all LOVED them! These will definitely be made on a regular basis... Perfect for kids too and not messy at all!!!
