Decadent Coconut Orange Pancakes with Spiced Candied Coconut Topping
In my household we eat pancakes every Sunday in what we call “Breakfast Massacre”. It is a brunch that must contain pancakes and whatever we feel like having that day. Let say it is our day off from our healthy breakfast. For the past couple of months I have been making a wholewheat pancake which we are happy with but seeing all the pancake post for the week had me wondering of a different pancake that really represents my style of cooking. The mango coconut pancake was created in my mind but never made it to the table as I gave in and ate the 3 ripe mangoes I had for the recipe…sorry guys! Ok I still had the coconut and two oranges on the counter. The coconut orange pancake was made. There have a very interesting taste because all the flavours work well together. The orange zest and juice mixed with coconut butter milk is the best along with the hint of almond. I could not cover these babies with maple syrup as these are not your regular pancakes. I had to make a special topping for these and I quickly whipped up a spiced coconut topping. What is life without chocolate? I made some chocolate ganache for these pancakes and we were in business. It was a real taste explosion. These will not be a regular for “Breakfast Massacre” because they are very special and too good to be eaten every week but, these will definitely be showing their face again for special occasions or when we have house guest. Hopefully I will get around to pairing mango and coconut together in my test kitchen but I give in to ripe mangoes easily so I cannot make any promises. Mango season is almost over I cannot believe it is almost over and I have only made one dish with mangoes.
