Everyone knows that we don’t have to wait for Pancake day to make some amazing pancakes, we love it so much that make it nearly every week! Although to participate in Shrove Tuesday we cooked 2 different types of Pancakes because I am trying to eat a low carb, I thought I’ll make some ‘no guilt’ pancake and the my tribe loves their usual thin pancake (crepe). I remember a friend of mine recommended that I buy coconut flour to substitute my normal flour. For a little while I made mug cakes using coconut flour (The Groovy Food Company) which was delicious and fitted into my macros.
I am a chocoholic so this recipe is perfect for me. I used raw cacao powder and Goji berries from Neals Yard and for my toppings I used Organic Buko Coconut Jam and Chocolate. Ohemgeeh! All these ingredients together is to luscious that it tasted naughty but so good for your body.
My tribe opted for their crepe and was very creative with their pancakes…oh and me too! I couldn’t resist it..HAHA!!

How To Make Double Chocolate Coconut and Banana Pancake
My children love pancakes, I make it for them every weekend and between them they can eat up to 10 pancakes. This recipe is somewhat an accident I had some Ube halaya left over from the Supper Club over the weekend so I thought what if I added it with the pancake? Viola! It worked! Filipinos love Ube also called purple yam, they put it in nearly every desert possible. It’s a topping on Halo-Halo (literally mean mix-mix), it can be an ice cream, flavour for cakes, added with rice cakes to name a few. I hope you enjoy this recipe!
In a large mixing bowl sift the plain flour and salt, if you’re adding sugar you can add it now too. Mix and make a gap in the middle of the flour
Break the eggs into the gap then mix well including the flour at the edge of the bowl. You can us a whisker or even a fork is good too!
Gradually add the milk and water mixture into the flour, continue whisking until you add all of the liquid. Melt the butter and add 2 tablespoons to the batter then mix well. The rest of the butter can be used for greasing the pan
By this time the ube halaya should be cooled already. Mix it well into the batter
Heat the pan on high heat at first and then turn it down to medium heat before putting some butter
Using a ladle pour some batter into a pan and tip it around side to side until you can evenly base the pan with the batter. It should take less than a minute or so, then check the pancake, when you see a hint of gold underneath then it’s ready to flip to the other side this should only take a few seconds then it’s ready. You can easily slide it off the pan into a plate
Stack the pancakes as you make them then serve warm
