RECIPE: Coconut-Orange Pancakes

Is there anyone who doesn't love pancakes? They seems to delight everyone, young and old(er). And they are so easy to prepare, it doesn't take a lot of effort to bring a round of smiles to the breakfast table. Much as I love pancakes, I was in the mood to try something a bit different from our standard recipe and came up with this tasty variation.

1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
2 tbsp sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 egg
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup coconut milk
1 tsp vanilla

2 tbsp canola oil (for frying)

In a medium bowl, combine the flours, sugar, baking powder and soda. In a small bowl, beat together the egg, orange juice, coconut milk and vanilla. Add to the flour mixture, stirring gently until well combined.

Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Pour about 3 tbsp of batter into the pan for each pancake. Cook about 1 minute, or until bubbles form on the surface and the bottom is golden brown. Carefully flip pancakes and cook just until the bottom browns. Serve with syrup and fresh fruit. 

Makes approximately 12 pancakes.

I shared this recipe at Frugal Food Thursday Recipe Swap Thursday, Full Plate Thursday,
