Coconut Pancakes

Another new recipe that we love...coconut pancakes! Saturday mornings, Aaron always makes pancakes with the kids, and these have become requested every week. The pancakes are really more like crepes, and they are very yummy. Think about us and all of the coconut plantations out in the Russell Islands when you eat them.

Coconut Pancakes

Serves 4-6

Combine in a bowl:

2 c. flour

1/2 c. sugar

2 tsp. baking powder


1 egg, beaten

1/4 fresh coconut shredded

1/4 tsp. cardamom powder

1/2 tsp. salt

2 1/2 c. milk

Stir until smooth. Prepare filling. Combine in saucepan:

1 1/2 c brown sugar

3/4 c. fresh coconut, shredded

3/4 c. milk

1/4 c. raisins

Cook, stirring frequently, until mixture is thick and liquid absorbed. Heat 1 tsp. margarine is 9 inch skillet (Aaron uses two skillets to cook more efficiently). Pour in a small amount of batter, tilting skillet to spread batter thinly over entire bottom. Cook until nearly dry on top. Add a narrow strip of filling and roll up. Repeat with remaining batter and filling, keeping pancakes warm in oven. Serve hot. (From "More-with-Less")
