BRUNCH TIME: Coconut Pancakes with Lime Syrup and Mango

I am a big fan of Gordon Ramsay, even though I do not like all of his TV shows. However, I watched enough of them to decide that I wanted one of his cookbooks which I got as a Christmas gift from my boyfriend's sister :)

The first recipe that caught my eye was of course a brunch idea: delicious exotic coconut pancakes with fresh mango and lime syrup. Doesn't that sound great?


  • 1 cup unsweetened desiccated coconut
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • Oil
  • 1 ripe mango
For the syrup
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2/3 cup water
  • Juice of 4 limes, finely grated zest of 1


    Pancake Batter
    Blend the desiccated coconut in a blender until it becomes a coarse powder. Add the flour and baking powder and blend. Pour mix into a mixing bowl, make a well in the middle, add the beaten egg. Stir. Now, whisk in the coconut milk and honey until you get a smooth batter. Cover the batter and let rest for 15 minutes. 

    Lime syrup:
    Put the sugar, water, lime juice and zest into a pan and heat. Simmer and stir till the sugar is completely dissolved. Simmer for 15 more minutes to reduce liquid and create a syrup consistency. Let cool down a little bit.

    Cook the pancakes
    Heat oil in a frying pan. If the batter is too thick, add a little water or coconut milk. Place a heaping tablespoon in the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes until golden. Turn over and cook other side. Remove and set aside and continue to make more. You can store them in the oven to keep them warm. 

    Serve the pancakes with slices of mango and the lime syrup on top.
