Hello, welcome, glad you stopped by. Today's recipe is specially made for one of my followers on Facebook who sent me a message asking if I knew how to make this peanut snack from Sierra Leone commonly known as granat cake. This is how we (Sierra Leoneans) praline. The question took me back to my school days back in Sierra Leone when we used to walk home with our friends after school each nibbling on this burnt sugar and peanut snack and telling stories, some true, some made up which we will always start with "dem say" meaning someone said so we will not be held accountable for what was said later on (talk about covering one's behind) okay, okay, I cannnnt, let's just leave the story here and cook this thingy already.
As per the title you need only two ingredients namely roasted unsalted peanuts (200gms) and white sugar (1 cup).
Smash the peanuts in a mortar and pestle.
Pour the sugar into a frying pan or pot over high heat and leave to melt
Lower the heat when the sugar starts to change color
Add the crushed peanuts
And stir till the peanut is well coated
Remove from heat and pour onto a chopping board covered with baking paper
Top with another sheet of baking paper and use a rolling pin to roll it out.
Take off the top baking paper
Leave it to cool down a bit for about 2-3 minutes
Then cut into triangles or any shape you prefer and enjoy.
