Cook:  10 - 15 minutes

Makes: 10  


For the scotch pancakes batter

200g plain flour

1 tbsp caster sugar

1 tbsp baking powder

¼ tsp sea salt

300ml milk, dairy-free works too

1 large egg

1 tbsp brown sugar

Butter or vegetable oil, to fry

To top

4 tbsp dried, ground coconut (to be toasted)

1 banana

4 tbsp of walnuts, chopped

4 tbsp coconut yogurt

Maple syrup or honey to taste                


Mini Pancake Pan
Mixing Bowl Set

What you'll need...


1. Mix all the dry ingredients in one mixing bowl.

2. In another mixing bowl, whisk the eggs and add the milk. Fold in the dry ingredients, mixing well.

3. Place a frying pan over med-high heat and toast the coconut flakes. Once the coconut flakes turn golden brown, transfer to a bowl and leave for later when topping the pancakes.

4. Place the mini pancake pan over the heat and add a teaspoon of butter or oil in each hole. Once the butter melts, add a dollop of pancake batter to each dip. Allow the batter to cook for 2 minutes or until golden brown underneath. Bubbles should start to appear around the edges of the pancakes. Flip the pancakes and cook until both sides are browned.

5. Remove the pancakes and repeat with the rest of the batter. Keep them warm by putting them on a plate and placing it under the oven that's on a very low heat.

6. Once all the scotch pancakes are cooked, stack the pancakes and top with sliced banana, chopped walnuts, coconut yogurt and the toasted coconut. Lace with maple syrup or honey and serve straight away!
