Everything Coconut. Coconut Pancakes;-)

I was reading a fantasy book the other day and the hero ordered coconut pancakes. I had never imagined such a thing, but since I’m a coconut fanatic I decided to find a recipe. Warning! You don’t want to have these every day, they are not low calorie. I used pineapple syrup to top them off, they are pretty great. If you’re one of those coconut haters this meal is not for you. However, it just goes to show that books can become reality.

Coconut Pancakes

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Yield: SERVES 2-3

1 can good-quality coconut milk (14 oz./398-400 ml)
• 1/2 cup shredded coconut
• 2 eggs
• 1 Tbsp. white sugar
• 2 Tbsp. Oil or melted butter
• 1 tsp. coconut flavoring
• 1 cup all-purpose flour
• 3 tsp. baking powder
• 1/2 tsp. salt
Mix the coconut milk, shredded coconut, eggs, Oil, and coconut flavoring together, set aside.
Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together and add dry ingredients. These pancakes need to be cooked on a pre-heated pan at a medium low setting. I use PAM to prevent sticking.

Pineapple Syrup

1 20 OZ can crushed pineapple
• ¾ cup granulated sugar
• 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
• 1 and ½ Tablespoons corn starch
In a small sauce pan, add sugar, lemon juice, and cornstarch to crushed pineapple, bring to a boil and cook for 1 minute.


  1. These sound yummy....I think they would be awesome with Nutella or melted chocolate chips and whip cream :-)

  2. I think I would have to eat them for dessert.
