Blackcurrant tray bake and bilberry ice cream from a local farm shop.

I've eaten coconut pancakes before but those were wafer-thin and didn't taste much of coconut at all. Quite unlike what I was expecting. When I think of coconut, I think creamy, nutty, milky, gooey, soft, fatty. And loads of coconut flavour!
As you can see from these pretty lilacs, summer has come and gone since I started playing around with this recipe.
But the end result is seriously good.

Fluffy coconut pancakes

100g ground coconut (desiccated coconut ground to a fine powder)
150g flour
2 tsp baking powder
80g sugar
4 eggs, separated
500ml coconut cream

Whisk egg yolks until pale and creamy. Add coconut cream and ground coconut. Stir until smooth.
Sift in the flour and baking powder. Mix. Make sure there are no lumps.
Whisk egg whites to soft peaks with sugar and a bit of salt. Fold into the batter.
Fry spoonfuls of batter in butter until golden on both sides.

Serve with tropical fruit and a mixture of whipped cream + coconut cream or seasonal berries, honey and yogurt. Or eat plain, with just milk.


  1. Adorable pictures.
    I'm honestly not a big fan of thick pancakes. I rather eat crepes but nevertheless, I absolutely love the feel of you photos and the ideas you bring forward. Those are some adorable banana and kiwi flowers!

  2. Here we do not have the tradition of eating thick pancakes either, little thin spooncakes are the most common but with one exception, curd cheese pancakes are the only thicker ones because otherwise you couldn't taste the creamy centre.
    My grandmother used to bake me teaspoon-sized spooncakes :)
    These pancakes here get their "fatness" from the whipped egg whites, makes the batter very light and airy.

  3. Jeerum, kui ilus! Jälle! Ja neid pakse kookose pannkooke proovime kindlasti järgi teha. Peaks praadima veel kookosõli sees, saaks eriti kookosene :) Ja puuviljad, mis on lilledeks lõigatud, on ka imearmsad.

    1. Aitäh! Pannkoogid on tõesti head, tuunisin retsepti kolm korda enne kui rahule jäin. Kookosõli mõte on ka päris hea.

  4. Can someone please "translate" this into American language pretty please?
