  • 500 ml coconut milk
  • ½ cup coconut (shredded)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • ½ cup oil
  • 1 ½ tbsp sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ cup maple syrup

Take a trip back to coconut heaven in 20 minutes.

  1. In a large mixing bowl, add eggs, coconut oil, and sugar and whisk until smooth. Now add coconut milk and shredded coconut and whisk again until the contents are well mixed.
  2. Now add flour, baking powder, and salt to the mixture, stirring continuously till all the contents are combined and no lumps remain.
  3. Heat a non-stick frying pan on high heat and add oil. Lower the heat to medium and pour ½ to ¼ cup of batter (depending on what size you want). If need be, tilt the pan to spread the batter evenly.
  4. Flip the pancake once tiny bubbles appear at the sides to cook the other side. Set it aside when done. Add more oil to the pan before cooking the next pancake, or it will stick. Cook all the pancakes, arrange on a serving plate, and bon appetit.

Chef Tip: Add some coconut milk to the maple syrup and mix well until smooth for an even better coconut flavor. Pour over your pancakes while they’re piping hot.

Light, fluffy, flavorsome! Gorge on them, and you’ll straight up land in the lovely coconut heaven called Thailand.
