I have a badge that I use to get into the building where I work. Late last week, a security guard took a second glance at it and confiscated it because it had been expired for three months.
The process of getting a new badge is a pain. There are several steps, and each step takes much longer than it should. I'll be lucky if I have a new badge by the end of this week.
Everyday I have to talk to a guard, show my driver's license, and then get a temporary sticker badge printed until I get my new official badge.
Blah! It's not a big deal, but it is obnoxious when I'm accustomed to just walking into the building.
Take heart! This is the last pancake recipe I'm going to post for at least a few weeks. The base pancake recipe comes from allrecipes.com. I added coconut flakes, coconut milk, coconut extract, lime juice, and lime zest.
The ingredients are 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 tablespoon white sugar, zest of 2 limes, juice of two limes, 1 cup coconut milk, 1 egg, 3 tablespoons melted butter, 1 teaspoon coconut extract, and 1 cup coconut flakes.
I added the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, lime zest, and coconut flakes into a big bowl. I whisked these ingredients enthusiastically.
I squeezed the juice from two limes into a liquid measuring cup. I added enough coconut milk to have one and a fourth cups in total.
I added the coconut milk mixture, egg, coconut extract, and milk into another bowl.
I poured the liquid ingredients into the dry and whisked well.
I scooped a fourth of a cup of batter into a hot and greased skillet. I cooked the pancakes until little bubbled formed near the center of the pancakes. I flipped the pancakes and cooked the other side for a few more minutes.
This recipe makes very tender and pillow like pancakes.
The coconut flavor was delightful and tropical. The lime was too subtle. I should have added more lime juice and lime zest.
Despite the weak lime taste, these were good. I ate them with gusto.
