I made these pancakes some days ago and my kids were totally in love. They are so similar to my Cameroon style pancakes with a coconuty twist. These ones are made just the way American pancakes are made. I did what I do to a lot of recipes… I added coconut to the mix. Coconut just makes every batter better.

Here is how I make them:

Prep: 5 mins
Cook: 20 mins


Flour – 2 cups
Coconut Milk – 2 cups
Butter – 2 tablespoons- it should be melted
Sugar – 3 tablespoons
Baking powder – 2 teaspoons
Shredded coconut or coconut powder – 1 cup
Eggs – 2
Salt – a pinch
Coconut oil to cook them in – 2 tablespoons


Put all dry ingredients in a bowl and mix.

Beat eggs and add in. Add in coconut milk too.

Mix together until mixture is smooth – no problem if it has a few lumps. Now put in your shredded coconut or coconut powder.

Warm a skillet and drop in some coconut oil and let put in one large scoop of batter. I had to use two pans for this so I could finish quickly.

When bubbles start forming at the top, flip to the other side. If the bubbles  don’t form, simply lift a side of the pancake with a spoon to make sure it is brown. If it is brown, flip the side and let the other side cook.

Repeat process until batter I finished. Some of the pancakes “disappeared” while I made them.

Thanks for reading and for making delicious pancakes.

    1. Hi Peace, you could make your own coconut milk by blending fresh coconut and passing through a sieve to separate the milk from the chaff. Hope this helps.
