Cinnamon apricot and coconut pancakes

>> Sunday, October 18, 2009

This Sunday morning is turning out to be a picture perfect day. The sky is blue, sun is shining and the air is Fall is finally here cool and crisp. After puttering around the house for a couple of hours doing laundry, etc. and enjoying my morning coffee, I decided to make pancakes for myself for breakfast. Instead of making just plain or buttermilk pancakes, I decided to spice them up a bit by making cinnamon apricot and coconut pancakes which were much to my delight, delicious. To make these breakfast treats, you will need to:

Whisk together in a large bowl:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
Sweet coconut flakes

In another bowl, whisk:

1 1/2 cups milk
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
2 large eggs

Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and gently whisk them together, mixing just until combined. Fold in 1/4 cup of chopped dried apricots.

On a heated griddle or your largest skillet, pour out approximately 1/3 cup batter for each pancake, making perfect circles of batter. Cook until the top of each pancake is speckled with bubbles and some have popped open, then turn and cook the other side until lightly browned.

Stack your pancakes on a plate to serve and top with pats of butter, cinnamon and butter pecan syrup. Enjoy your breakfast and this beautiful day!
