This recipe for Tropical Buttermilk Pancakes is a terrific change from ordinary pancakes… with lots of wonderful flavors… bananas… coconut… rum (extract), pineapple syrup… you’ll think you woke up on a tropical island and breakfast was made especially for you! …
Okay those of you in the northeast and elsewhere where old man winter just paid a visit… the tropical paradise theme may be a little hard to imagine… but you can try … just make this for breakfast and stick a little umbrella in your orange juice… a little island music and… well you’re almost there.
So why the tropical theme… you might ask?
We’re havin’ a blog party tomorrow for one of our fellow bloggers…Dave from Year on the Grill… seems Dave and his wife with the “inconvenient day job” have temporarily settled in the Virgin Islands while she has a temporary transfer at work…. So from snowy Kansas to a tropical paradise he went….
And I must admit… I’m a bit envious… but nonetheless… we all wish him well during his adventure.
So what’s a blog party? All of Dave’s blogger friends get together and post tropical recipes… and “meet” at The Krazy Kitchen blog…. so hop on over tomorrow to the Krazy Kitchen and see what else there is to see…. And of course… stop by Dave’s blog to see what’s cookin’ in the Virgin Islands.
BUT Shhhhhhhhhhhhh... it's a secret until tomorrow...
You can buy pineapple syrup or make your own… see my recipe for Pineapple Syrup.
So without more chit chat… here’s my “tropical” entry….. Tropical Buttermilk Pancakes… I hope you try them!
Recipe: Tropical Buttermilk Pancakes
All you need:
1 cup buttermilk
¼ cup whole milk
1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons butter, melted
½ teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons rum extract
1 cup flour
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
2-3 very ripe bananas, mashed
1/3 cup sweetened coconut flakes
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
½ teaspoon cinnamon
All you need to do:
In a medium bowl, mash the bananas.
Add and then beat the buttermilk, milk, egg, butter, vanilla and rum extract.
In a large bowl, combine flour, sugars, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, cinnamon and salt.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.
Add the coconut and stir to mix well.
Let stand for 5 minutes.
Spray a grill pan with butter flavored cooking oil spray.
Heat the pan over medium heat and make pancakes. Picture shows holes starting to form.. wait to flip until it has more holes.
Watch closely, they tend to scorch easily.
When the top has lots of small holes in the batter and bottom is golden brown, flip them over and cook briefly on the other side.
Serve hot with butter, pineapple chunks and pineapple syrup.
