The great part about pancakes is that the options are as wide as the type of ingredients you have in your pantry. And today I was in the mood for something a little more tropical. And it just so happened that I had Coconut and almond flavoring in my cupboard...And so I set out to try this combination of flavors. The base pancake recipe I started with is the one I've used many times on this blog:
2 cups buttermilk
2 cups Self-rising flour
1/2 cup sugar
Then I experimented with the coconut and almond flavoring:
I found if you add 1 & 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes (if the coconut you have is sweetened just go easier on the sugar) and 2 tsp almond flavoring you find you have the perfect combination of flavors. Top with additional coconut flakes and chopped almonds.
Just a tiny tweak to make a whole new pancake recipe that is still relatively easy but delicious. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
