Okay well we know that it’s been a very long time in between posts. What can I say we’ve been busy. It’s end of financial year coming up and I have been studying and just sat the exam. I was in Fiji and Sydney and now Mike is flying back and forth to Canberra. SO busy busy busy. Along with these schedules we haven’t been doing a lot of cooking – sucks I know!!!!
This week though we decided that we needed to stop the spending and start saving. We were going to go out to tea after my exam on Saturday but decided A) I was way too tired and B) we needed to save some money. So enter the pancakes.
We were going to make these babies for breakfast (and in fact we did) because we are totally sick of there being no Vegan brunch places in Adelaide open on a Sunday. The Vegan offerings in Adelaide are a little low but on a Sunday forget it – and for breakfast – you’re dreaming. So feed up with eating nothing exciting on a Sunday morning, we decided to give these a go. We loved them and ate them for breakfast and tea.
We really enjoyed the mix of coconut and pineapple – YUM. I can be encouraged to drink a Piña colada without much pressure and so these pancakes sounded like something I would want to eat. We changed the recipe a little and used shredded coconut as I wanted nice strips of coconut rather than a coconut flavoured pancake. It worked great and gave the pancakes and added texture. We also stuck to using coconut essence for all over coconut goodness. These are great in Winter or anytime but I think we’re going to love them in Summer!!!!!!
So this recipe comes from Vegan with a Vengeance and we also changed in a really small way be halving the nutmeg and putting in some cinnamon – cause I love it. Next maybe we’ll add Malibu……
