Sunday morning pancakes are a staple in our house. Sometimes we like plain old buttermilk pancakes, or other times we like to mix it up a bit and have fun coming up with new flavors or toppings. These peach and toasted coconut pancakes are the perfect combination of flavors and I think one of our new favorite Sunday pancake recipes. We love anything made with coconut in my house. So I knew these would be an instant hit. Toasting the coconut before adding it to the pancakes intensifies the flavors even more and gives the pancakes a little crunch. I just added coconut to a dry pan on medium heat for about 2 minutes. The key is to keep the coconut moving so it doesn’t burn. 1/2 cup was plenty to add to the pancake batter as well as sprinkle some over the top. The batter is really similar to any other pancake batter, but the addition of Vintage Seltzer water really made these pancakes light and fluffy. Also… it is really important not to over mix the batter. You want to make sure that the bubbles from the seltzer water stay intact. 10 or 15 times around the bowl is plenty. You WILL have lumps, but they will cook out on the griddle. Trust me! To compliment the coconut and peach flavors I used Vintage Mango Peach seltzer water for this recipe. It’s calorie free with no added sodium or sugar. Additionally, it contains no High Fructose Corn Syrup (or any other artificial sweeteners), and no FDC color. I know people typically just think of seltzer water as a beverage, but it’s amazing when used in baking. It gives any baked good a lighter, fluffier texture. Vintage Seltzer has 3 new summer flavors that are available June 24th through July 31st. I loved the Peach Mango for these pancakes, but the Blueberry and Pineapple sound great too! Maybe used in a summer mocktail?! The summer flavors are available at Shoprite, Wegmens, or Stop N Shop New York, but their line of core flavors are available everywhere in NY and NJ.
