Give your weekend breakfast a gourmet flair with this recipe for strawberry pancakes and coconut syrup.
These pancakes are super easy to whip together. You just add all of the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. There are actual strawberries in the batter. The strawberries give the batter a nice light pink color. There is also buttermilk included in these for a nice tender pancake.
Next is the syrup. This is different from the coconut syrup recipe that I have shared before. The recipe I have shared before was basically a buttermilk syrup that gets it’s coconut flavor from coconut extract.
This coconut syrup uses coconut milk for the base. Then you add in sugar, cornstarch, corn syrup, and vanilla. This is a syrup that would be great to use for other breakfast or dessert dishes. You’ll think you are eating at a restaurant with this gourmet strawberry version topped with the sweet coconut syrup.
Top these pancakes with even more strawberries to really drive home the strawberry flavor. Plus, it makes them look pretty too!
