Mango coconut pancakes

Happiness isn’t always in one place.

But my current place and state, mmm…. I do not want anything. Just these pancakes.

Coconuts and mangoes, you are alluring.

These pancakes are fuss free, easy on my budget and comforting to eat.

Did I tell you, I got three huge mangoes at five cedis last week. It is unusual in Takoradi even when mangoes are in season:(

It has coconut milk, dried coconut flakes and mangoes.

Whiles making this, my sister came in and said “Ah, we eating too much coconuts and mangoes these days”. After her first bite, she screamed “I need more coconuts and mangoes in my life” and rushed out with three.
