Hello blog lovers! Hope you have all had a fantastic weekend!
Nothing starts a week out right better than a new pancake recipe in celebration of my favorite blogging tradition, Pancake Sunday, and boy do I have a winning recipe for you today!
While at the store last week, I picked up some mangos that were on sale for 50 cents a piece! What a bargain, right? There was no way I was passing that one up…even though I’d put cutting a mango in the same enjoyment category as going to the dentist!
I’ve Googled a-plenty, but I somehow I always manage to mutilate my mango in the process of cutting it! Anyone else out there with mango-mania? 😉
Anywho, I guess I can’t say “there were no mangos harmed in the making of this breakfast,” but I CAN say that it was well worth getting my hands a little
- 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg white, whisked a bit for better mixability (if that’s not a word, I’m making it one!)
- 1/2 cup plain yogurt (I used Greek)
- 1/2 teaspoon coconut extract
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh mango
- 1/8 cup unsweetened dried coconut flakes
1. Combine all of your dry ingredients in a medium-sized bowl.
2. Whisk together egg white, yogurt, extract, and water.
3. Stir in mango and coconut.
4. Add wet mixture to dry mixture and stir until combined.
5. Scoop batter onto a greased skillet over medium heat and cook for about 5-6 minutes (or until bubbly), then flip and cook for another 2-3 minutes until done.
These tropical little cakes would fare perfectly with any number of toppings: Sarena’s coconut cream, coconut butter, almond butter, or even just a simple drizzle of maple syrup, but since I had extra mango
guts pulp strewn across my cutting board to use, I decided to give it a whirl in the trusty MB (magic bullet) for a mango “sauce.”
I could NOT believe the taste of these beauties! They were perfectly (and naturally) sweet, smooth and…BUTTERY!…and there’s not even any butter in them! This is definitely a “must-try” recipe! I can’t wait to have the other two for breakfast in the morning!
What did you have for breakfast today?
Are any of you master mango carvers? Any tips?
