Thai Coconut Pancake Recipe


As today is Shrove Tuesday, I made Thai inspired coconut pancakes. Andy has been excited for this since the weekend as he says they are my speciality. This is my trusted recipe.


8 heaped dessert spoons of plain flour
2 heaped dessert spoons of desiccated coconut
1/2 pint of semi-skimmed milk
1 tsp sugar
1 egg

Mix the dry ingredients together and gradually whisk in the milk

Add the egg and mix well

Heat the pan on a medium heat and add a small amount of butter, about 1/2 a tsp

Pour in a ladle of the batter to cover the pan evenly

Cook on both sides until golden brown in colour

Chocolate Pancakes

We ate ours with lychees, strawberries, banana, honey and melted chocolate.

Toddler Pancakes

Annabelle had strawberry, banana and honey but wouldn’t try the lychee.

  1. I loved these photos because they are so bright, vivid and colourful. I think the lychees are a very creative addition to the pancakes. The melted chocolate looks sooooo good, unfortunately I really can’t, shouldn’t, eat it.

    Didn’t know Pancake Day was called Shrove Tuesday, now I know 🙂

    1. Oh, it is a shame you can’t eat the melted chocolate pancakes. They were yummy! I’m not normally a huge fan of chocolate pancakes. I like lemon, caramel or banoffee but I must admit these ones yesterday may have converted me!

      Thank you. I didn’t expect the photos to turn out as well it was a bit of a fluke!

      Shrove Tuesday is pretty big here and the supermarkets often sell out of lemons!
