Two posts today?! Boy are you lucky!
OH.MY.GOD. Coconut pancakes. Let me tell you...you will never have another pancake again (okay...maybe you will.) When my roommate's mom suggested this to us, I was a little unsure just because coconut is not my go-to flavor. I will never question her again is pretty much the lesson I have learned here. We made these cakes for our little "Gal-entine's Day" brunch Sunday morning and were blown away. I didn't even put syrup on mine (just a little cinnamon) and I was fully satisfied flavor-wise. All you do? Make your favorite pancake recipe and add a bunch of coconut shreds. Unfortunately, I cannot give you a measurement. I was told just to gradually add the coconut until I could see the shreds all throughout as I was stirring. Here's the recipe that we used from Martha Stewart:
What you need:
- 1 c. all-purpose flour
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 c. milk
- 2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
- 1 large egg
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil
What to do:
- Mix dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, salt)
- Mix milk, butter and egg in a medium bowl. Add the dry ingredients to the mixture. Mix until everything is moistened
- Gradually add coconut shreds as you stir. Stop when you are able to see the shreds throughout (there should be a lot!)
- Heat skillet over medium
- Ladle batter onto the skillet. Let cook 1-2 minutes on each side. (I'm always a little weary about undercooking pancakes so sometimes I let them sit a bit longer)
- Enjoy! This recipe says it makes 4 servings but we got 3 (two pancakes per person) but I am sure we made them a bit bigger than Martha wanted us to...
Will you try this? What are your favorite kinds of pancakes?
