Coconut Milk Pancakes
Coconut Milk Pancake Recipe
This is such an easy recipe. And it is amazing how just a little coconut milk and shredded coconut can change a plain pancake into something extraordinary.
14 oz good-quality coconut milk
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1+1/2 tablespoon granulated coconut palm sugar
2 tablespoon coconut oil OR butter, melted
1 cup all-purpose flour
3 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
rice bran oil for frying
1. In a medium-size mixing bowl, combine the can of coconut milk with the shredded coconut. Set aside.
In a smaller bowl, whisk the eggs. Add the sugar and melted butter, and whisk again until light and fluffy.
Add the egg mixture to the coconut milk mixture, stirring well to combine.
2. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the wet coconut-egg mixture to the dry flour mixture, stirring well to combine.
3. Heat a frying pan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium and add 1 tablespoon rice bran oil and swirl around. Ladle about 1/4 cup pancake batter (for large pancakes) into the middle of the pan. When surface around is covered with bubbles, flip and cook the other side.
4. Serve with Coconut Syrup: Simply combine 1/3 cup coconut milk with 1/3 cup maple syrup and stir well. You can adjust the syrup by adding more coconut milk or more syrup depending on how syrup-y or coconut-y you like it. You can also sprinkle with coconut palm sugar.
