Mmmm… Coconut Pancakes.

November 19, 2007

There are very few foods in this world that I crave, though I’ve always had a sweet tooth. My favorite sweet flavors are vanilla and coconut (separate or together, it doesn’t matter to me). So, when we went to Thailand and I found out that coconut is used in just about every native dessert, I felt like I died and went to heaven.

Of course now that we are back in the States, I’m craving two types of Thai treats: coconut pancakes and coconut pudding. Neither are served locally anywhere (at least, not that I’ve found so far), but I think I might have found a recipe that looks like it would make the coconut pudding we tried in Thailand. Score!

As for the coconut pancakes, I’m still working on trying to find a recipe that mimics the ones I had in Thailand. I’m a little worried that I won’t find an “authentic” recipe, because most of the recipes I’ve found so far use sweetened condensed milk (ewww) and not coconut milk. 🙁 I’m not about to give up, though! Seriously, those coconut pancakes were the bomb-diggity and I must have them again!

Since I don’t have any coconut milk on hand, my craving for the coconut pudding will have to wait until the next shopping day, but I do plan on making it before the end of the month. When I do, I’ll let you know how it turns out. 🙂

So, I’m curious if I’m the only loony person out there who looks up recipes of random foods she’s tried just to satisfy a craving. Also, what sort of foods do you crave, and if you are having one of your cravings, how far do you go to satisfy it?

K Jocoy – Thanks for looking, that is so sweet of you. 🙂 Those do look yummy, but unfortunately are not the coconut pancakes I had in Thailand. The ones I had looked like actual miniature pancakes and were not rolled. Who knew the recipe for them would be so hard to find!?

So, I came upon your blog in one of those entirely roundabout, link-hopping ways which procrastination so often results in, and think I may in fact be able to help…if you’re still craving after three months. Are you coconut pancakes you’re thinking of small, with one slightly rounded side, and usually have green onions sprinkled on top? If so, I’ve definitely got a recipe for it.
