Yum! We really enjoyed these pancakes. I made as written and then followed the other reviewer's suggestions by topping each pancake with some additional coconut. They are like coconut macaroon pancakes :-) We enjoyed the pancakes topped with sliced fresh strawberries and powdered sugar. Thanks for posting the recipe!
Sorry the picture is so fuzzy, but the pancakes are AWESOME. I did follow 2hot2handle and added 1/4 cup of coconut as well as topping the cakes while cooking. Served with fresh hot coffee, butter and syrup on the side. So good, easy to prepare and differant from every day pancakes.
I had the most amazing coconut pancakes when I was in Hawaii and was searching for a recipe that came close, and this is it! I do confess to putting 1/4 cup of coconut into the batter and then sprinkling a bit more onto the top of each cooking pancake (adding a yummy toasted flavor). So my version is probably not as "light" as this one, but it sure was delicious. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!
