Baked Coconut Mango Pancakes

Baked Coconut Mango Pancakes

Simple and quick but delicious, these soft and slightly custard-y baked pancakes make as wonderful a treat on a weekend morning with a mug of hot coffee as they would for dessert, and are best eaten hot out of the oven. Made with coconut milk, fresh mango pieces and just a hint of cardamom, this is another and slightly more exotic variation on the baked strawberry pancakes that proved to be so popular last summer.

I just wanted to say that I love your blog. I've been searching for a delicious but relatively healthy veggie website for ages an dI love almost all the stuff on here. Desperate for a sweet fix, I made this today but used strawberries and Kiwi in lieu of mango, and agave syrup instead of sugar. My blog isn't quite as delicious as your recipes but I'm keeping one with eating well while keeping the hips svelte - its at fitbitchuk.blogspot.com. would love anyone's comments about how I can post better pics of food. Mine are always blurred - or they get misty as they're hot and it steams up the lens!

Anon, thanks so much for your kind words. Your substitutions sound great.

I'm an amateur photographer, but I would suggest you get a tripod and maybe find the close up setting on your camera. As far as steam, well, patience is the key. Even when I am starving, I let the food cool down a bit before taking pictures.
