Coconut Lime Pancakes

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  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.

That would be so annoying! Hopefully they get you a new one soon. I love this recipe, that flavor combo is the best!
