Holidays, Easter Buffet Station & Coconut Pancakes

I love to make things festive for holidays, and have been busy getting out carrots and bunnies

Pulling out seasonal decor can be a lot like getting a present, you open a box and there is that special something you totally forgot you had  😂

Like these carrots that I tied on to my cakedome to disguise the palm trees…

Coaster felt bunnies are guarding the jars of snacks on the island buffet

Seasonal dishes and serving pieces serve double duty, they add decor plus are handy for meals and snacks

Easter bash or not, you can whip up these coconut pancakes to make any morning feel like a special occasion

You can use a pancake mix or your favorite scratch recipe and substitute coconut milk, and add coconut extract and shreds to the batter

You can find my recipe below

You can serve the pancakes with maple syrup,

Blueberry or raspberry syrup

Coconut Syrup or Cream of Coconut, just a drizzle straight from the container is heaven

However you top them, you are in for a treat!

Coconut Pancakes

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Course Breakfast, Brunch
Cuisine American
Servings 8 pancakes


  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup canned coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tsp coconut extract
  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 T sugar
  • butter and oil for cooking
  • 1/4 cup sweetened coconut shreds
  • additional coconut for garnishing
  • Syrup or Cream of Coconut for serving


  • Beat egg and combine with milks and coconut extract. In a large measuring cup or bowl with pour spout, combine dry ingredients and coconut shreds. Add milk mixture and stir until just combined. Do not over blend or pancakes will be rubbery.
  • Melt 1 T butter over medium heat in large skillet and drizzle olive oil over the pan. Pour batter into hot pan making the pancakes the size you like. Let batter cook undisturbed until bubbles appear on the uncooked surface, 3-5 minutes. Carefully flip pancakes and cook 2-3 more minutes until golden.
  • Serve pancakes immediately with additional butter, Cream of Coconut, Maple, Raspberry or Blueberry Syrup

Easy peasy!

Don’t worry if the batter is lumpy, that’s the coconut  🏝

If batter seems to thick, thin with additional coconut milk, milk or buttermilk

    It’s always a fun party at your festive home, Jenna! I’m really love that bunny cake stand. Isn’t he the cutest? Oh, and those coconut pancakes….yum! I just bought a new container of cream of coconut for a cake that I make. I noticed that my container was almost empty. As it turns out, my son, who is living here with me, has been drizzling it over ice cream! LOL!! Now I’ll be dreaming of it drizzled over your coconut pancakes! Happy Easter week to you.

    I need to hurry up and make up my mind, but I’m toying with the idea of an Easter brunch instead of lunch. This may have helped me decide!!!

    I must admit to having lots of those moments when I find something I forgot about. My kids say I have to much stuff that’s why I forget about it. Whatever the reason it is like opening a present. I am loving these pancakes! My family is not big on coconut but that means more for me. Thank you for sharing with us this week at Celebrate Your Story, have a great week and have a Happy Holiday.
