How to make Coconut And Mango Pancakes
This recipe makes about 7 to 8 pancakes.
Step 1. Sift the flour into a bowl, add the coconut shavings, baking powder, salt, sugar, nutmeg or cinnamon if you will be using. Mix together.
Step 2. In another bowl, add the egg, coconut milk , vanilla, melted butter. Mix together.
Step 3. Blitz the chopped mangoes in a blender for a few seconds to smoothen the chunks a little, then add it to the milk mixture. Give it a good stir.
***You don’t have to puree the mangoes first. You can chop it and add it to the pancake batter directly. But I tried that and didn’t like biting into the mango chunks in my finished pancakes. If you don’t mind mango chunks in your pancakes, skip the blending. If you are going to blending, don’t add any water so the pancake batter doesn’t get too watery. Just blend the mango for a few seconds as is and don’t blend for too long. Use the “pulse” function in your blender. You only need to pulse long enough to smoothen the chunks a little, blending like you would a smoothie isn’t necessary.
Step 4. Add the mango mixture to the flour, mix everything together. If the batter is too thick for you, add in an extra 1/4 cup of water or coconut milk and stir gently.
***If you didn’t puree the mangoes earlier, add in the chopped mangoes here and gently stir it in.
Step 5. Add a tablespoon of oil to a pan (you can use coconut oil), heat up, add 1/2 cup of your pancake batter to the pan and fry until done.
Repeat until you have exhausted all the pancake batter. Fry the first batch on medium heat, then lower the heat and fry the rest on medium to low heat or even low heat so the insides will properly cook. Don’t forget to keep the already fried pancakes in a warm place.
Done. Your Coconut And Mango Pancake is ready. Top with more coconut shavings and chopped mangoes and drizzle your favourite syrup all over. Yum.
