Hawaiian Pancakes


Pancakes are always the "Ol' Standby" breakfast at my house...when I can't think of anything else to cook, I serve pancakes. Sometimes I get really creative and jive things up a bit...I add a little of this and a little of that and then everyone forgets they are eating "pancakes," they get the feeling that they are eating something new and COOL for a change....Actually my family really likes pancakes, plain ol' ordinary pancakes OR the spruced up kind...like these. I thought these were fun, tasty and something different. Give them a try for your family breakfast tomorrow and shake up your "pancake routine".

Hawaiian Pancakes
1 c. flour
2 T sugar
1 1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/4 t. salt
2 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. nutmeg
Combine in a bowl and stir with a whisk so all dry ingredient is combined well.

In a mixing bowl combine:
3/4 c. vanilla yogurt
2 T. melted butter
2 t. vanilla
2 eggs
5 T. sweetened shredded coconut
1/2 c. chopped walnuts
1 smashed, ripe banana

Mix well. Add dry mixture and continue to mix. Add:

1-1 1/2 c. heavy cream or milk

Stir until all ingredient is well blended. 

Spray pancake griddle or skillet with cooking spray and heat until HOT. Pour about 1/4-1/2 c pancake batter onto HOT surface (you may need to spread batter out with a spoon...batter is a little thick). Cook until the tops are covered with bubbles and the edges looked cooked. Turn pancakes and cook until bottoms are lightly browned. Serve with butter and maple syrup. 

Happy Cooking~
