Tesco coconut pancakes AD

So another pancake recipe has made it onto the blog, but this one measures up just like all the others that are on here. Its a recipe from Tesco for coconut pancakes with caramelised banana and coconut yogurt. They are so light and fluffy and don't contain a lot of ingredients to make them.
This recipe is also really simple and quick to put together even first thing on a morning. If you cant do that you can always make them ahead of time they keep really well in the fridge overnight and heat in the microwave fine the next morning for 30seconds. 


Ive also tested this recipe with gluten free flour blend from Tesco and they work out perfect with 1:1 replacement of flour. 

Tesco have such a great and wide variety of plant based ingredients to choose from everything listed in this recipe was easy to find and they had a wide selection of brands to choose from. You could literally dump everything into a bowl with these pancakes and mix until all the lumps go and you still couldn't go wrong. I like to pop the mixture into a pipping bag and pipe them directly into the pan, thats of course only if your fussy about wanting that perfectly round pancake. 

Right lets get onto what your going to need, the link to these can be found here on the Tesco site where you can also find loads of other plant based recipes for browsing I've also popped it below. You can also get the ingredients texted to your phone (how cool) so its worth a look over!

Ingredients; 
225g self-raising flour (or gluten free flour)
2 tbsp golden caster sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1⁄2 tsp salt
30ml coconut oil, melted, plus extra for frying
1⁄2 tsp vanilla extract
400ml free-from coconut milk drink
For the caramelised bananas
50g soft brown sugar
100ml free-from coconut milk drink
2 bananas, peeled and sliced into thick rounds
4 tbsp coconut yogurt, to serve

Method:
1. Sift the flour into a large bowl, add the caster sugar, baking
powder and salt and mix together. Whisk in the melted
coconut oil, vanilla extract and 375ml coconut milk to create
a smooth batter, about the consistency of thick double
cream – if the batter seems a little thick, add the remaining
coconut milk to loosen.
2. Melt a little coconut oil in a large frying pan, add a large
spoonful of the batter for each pancake, frying in batches
of 2-3. Cook over a low heat for 2-3 mins or until small
bubbles start to appear. Flip over the pancakes and cook for
another 2 mins or until pale golden and well risen. Transfer
to a serving plate and keep warm while you repeat with the
remaining batter to make 12 pancakes.
3. To make the caramelised bananas, heat the sugar and
coconut milk in another frying pan until the sugar has melted
and the mixture is bubbling. Once reduced slightly, add the
sliced bananas and bubble for 2 mins, then flip and cook for
1 min.
4. Serve 3 warm pancakes per person with some of the
bananas, drizzling over any remaining caramel from the pan.Finish with a dollop of coconut yogurt
