I’ve decided that all modern day appliances have a vendetta against me. Not sure what I did but they just don’t like me.
We spent all day yesterday cleaning our house for some guests and then at the last minute they cancelled. We were happy to get the house clean anyway though, because baby Ryder has now officially passed his due date and we are all getting a little anxious so it was a good time to rid the house of dust.
Anyway, yeah, appliances. The other day I couldn’t get my camera to work, duh duh DUH! I almost had a full freak-out but my dad was able to help. I’ve always had problems with connecting devices with the wi-fi in this house. A problem that no one else seems to share. Okay, and yesterday I was vacuuming and it just died in the middle of the floor, no warning. What? Turns out I over-heated it but Josh was able to do some Macgyver-ing.
Then I topped my day off with accidentally leaving a burner on after lots of use all day and then….I set a wet towel on it! I totally did. Thank the Lord for my sister’s super-human pregnant nose and my brother-in-law’s quick reflexes or I probably would have burned the house down. Nice.
I know what you’re thinking, you don’t even have to say it. I’ve clearly got some serious issues and cannot be trusted. Again, thank goodness for all of the people I love who prevent all of my potential catastrophes. Well, if you haven’t already written me off as completely insane and called the men in the white suites to come pick me up with a straight jacket and cuffs than I should probably get to telling you about these pancakes.
In case you haven’t noticed, I make pancakes pretty often for the gang and, oh boy, can this family put away some pancakes. The best part of when I make pancakes is that they are always slightly different. Pancakes are so versatile and easy that you can put all kinds of stuff in them. I love using the ends of bags of miscellaneous flours and various dairy products.
These particular pancakes were exceptional. I used one of my current obsessions, coconut cream, and it gave them the most amazing texture, Yum! You really need to try these if you like pancakes at all because these are up there with the best.
Oh, and if you aren’t much of a coconut fan, don’t worry. You really can’t hardly taste coconut at all. It’s more about the texture it adds than the flavor. I put these with some fresh berries, which I’ve told you about how many I have right now, and it was a great combination. You just need to do it!
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 3/4 cups milk
- 3/4 cup coconut cream
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 3 eggs
- 2 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 3 tablespoons baking powder
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract (optional but amazing)
- 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- Mix coconut oil, coconut cream, sugar, and milk in a large mixing bowl. Whisk in eggs, salt, baking powder, and vanilla. Stir in flour.
- Heat a griddle or large non-stick skillet over medium heat and grease lightly. Pour about 1/4 cup batter for each pancake onto griddle and cook for 1 to 2 minutes then flip and cook on other side for 1 to 2 minutes more until done.
- Serve immediately.
You can substitute coconut milk in this recipe if you can't find coconut cream. Just replace the 3/4 cup coconut cream and the 2 3/4 cup regular milk with 1 1/2 cups coconut milk and 2 cups regular milk.
