Growing up, pancakes were always a staple in our house. My dad would make them on Saturday or Sunday, continuing the tradition from when his grandmother would make him a short stack.
Luckily, I married a man that can also make some superb pancakes. However, everyone tries to test me and ask ‘who makes better pancakes, your husband or your dad?’
I’ll never tell.
But I do sense a bit of competition each weekend when my husband is whipping up a batch.
I fancied these pancakes up a bit – which is funny since neither my husband or my father would eat such a thing. I would and did, of course.
Into the batter went some creamy coconut and white chocolate morsels. I toasted some coconut for garnish.
This is basically my husband’s worst nightmare since he hates coconut. But even he took one look at these pancakes and said ‘Wow! Those look really good!’
Luckily, today wasn’t the day that he decided to love coconut, which meant more pancakes for me.
I am considering forcing him to eat coconut. He and his friends decided that it would be hilarious to grow mustaches. I am refusing to go out in public with him. He looks like the uni-bomber, a child predator, and a creepy old man all rolled into one. Think I can shave him in his sleep?
Probably, since he sleeps like a toddler.
But do you know what’s funny? My dad has a mustache. So of course, my husband thinks it is fine for him to have one, too.
I should boycott cooking for him. Or only cook foods using items he dislikes, like ricotta cheese, coconut, and anything labeled ‘vegan.’ It would be funny if I got rid of all the meat in our house, too. I bet he’d shave that ‘stache in an instant.
White Chocolate Coconut Pancakes
pancakes from allrecipes
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 1/4 cups milk
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 cup white chocolate morsels
1/2 cup coconut
1/4 cup toasted coconut
In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg and melted butter; mix until smooth. Fold in coconut.
Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Drop in white chocolate morsels. Flip when bubbles appear on the top. Brown on both sides and serve hot. Garnish with butter, syrup, and toasted coconut.
The white chocolate became melty and creamy, giving the fluffy pancakes a sweet, smooth texture. They practically melt in your mouth!
Make these pancakes for breakfast asap. Or for dinner. Or even lunch. Or dessert. Or how about for a snack? You can also make them if your husband hates coconut and is growing a crusty mustache. Report back.
On the pancakes that is, not about the mustache. There is no changing my mind on this one.
