An Easter Pancake Breakfast

Happy Easter, everyone! I hope this very special holiday is full of family and friends, and that fond memories will be made. For me, few things warm the heart (and a chilly Sunday morning) like my family waking up to a big stack of pancakes. This recipe is adapted from Williams-Sonoma’s recipe for Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes. I’ve just swapped the berries for coconut, bananas and walnuts. Feel free to use your favorite fruit. This breakfast would be sooo good served with chilled Moscato. You could even jazz it up: add a little pineapple juice to make a tropical mimosa!

Banana Coconut Pancakes


  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 Tbsp. sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 ¼ cups buttermilk
  • 4 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract
  • ½ cup shredded coconut
  • 3-4 bananas, sliced
  • Toasted walnuts, for garnish

Preheat oven to 200 degrees.

In a bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the eggs until frothy. Add the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt buttermilk, butter, vanilla and coconut. Stir just until the batter is smooth and no lumps of flour remain. Don’t overmix or you’ll end up with tough pancakes!

Heat your griddle to medium-high heat. Lightly grease griddle with cooking spray, or a little oil or butter. Ladle about 1/3 cup batter for each pancake. Top with 4 or 5 slices of banana. Cook until bubbles form on top and the batter is set, about 1 to 2 minutes. Flip pancakes and cook until golden brown on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a baking sheet and keep warm in the oven while cooking the remaining pancakes.

Top each serving with some walnuts and serve with butter and maple syrup. Makes about 16 pancakes.

–What are you cooking this Easter Sunday?
