They had some really nice looking mangos at the grocery store this weekend and I could not resist picking up a bunch of them. I remembered seeing a recipe for mango pancakes at more than burnt toast that sounded good. The recipe called for coconut milk and an overripe banana for some extra layers of flavour. I had also been wanting to try experimenting with cardamom and I liked the idea of using some in the pancakes. The pancakes were pretty good! They were nice and moist and light and full of flavour. I could easily have eaten them by themselves but I added some extras. I topped the mango pancakes with some pieces of mango, sliced banana, chopped macadamia nuts and some pureed mango. Of course I had to work maple syrup into the dish somehow so I added some to the mango puree.
Mango and Banana Pancakes
- 1 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/8 teaspoon cardamom (ground)
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 mango (stoned and peeled 1/2 mashed and 1/2 cubed)
- 1/2 cup coconut milk
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 egg
- 1 overripe banana (mashed)
- Mix the flour, baking powder, cardamom and salt in a large bowl.
- Mix the mango puree, coconut milk, milk, egg, butter and banana in another bowl.
- Mix the wet and dry ingredients.
- Heat a pan and melt a touch of butter in it.
- Pour 1/4 cup of the mixture into the pan and cook until the surface starts to bubble and the bottom is golden brown, about 2-3 minutes.
- Flip the pancake and cook the other side until the bottom is golden brown, about 1-2 minutes.

Kevin, get out of my head! I’ve been experimenting with cardamom too…and made a dutch boy using it! I was going to post the entry for it tomorrow. Now everyone’s going to think I’m a Kevin groupie…wait, I am a Kevin groupie!
AAAAAAAH!!! Mangoes all over a pancake!! I love it! (Hm, fyi, my name was not meant to sound like “mango”– it’s a coincidence.)
Those pancakes look pretty awesome, Kevin! I really like that recipe.
Stop on over to my place when you get a chance. I left a little something for you. 😉
Only thing you could do to improve that is add a dollop of whipped cream on the top:)))
MANGO & BANANAS??? TOGETHER??? IN PANCAKES??? Too good to be true!!! Yum!!! Fun idea, adding cardmom to the mix, as well!

Wow, Kevin, this is what I call a wonderful breakfast!
Wow, what a combo! I”m not sure why I’ve never thought of it before. I mean, it is my favorite margarita flavor 🙂
Can’t wait to try these.
Kevin, I actually made the ‘Homer Simpson Doughnut’ noise when the page opened and I saw the picture, it just escaped my lips before I knew what was happening!
Mango is something I have been enjoying quite often lately. I made waffles for breakfast this morning and I’m thinking you may have given me an idea for next weekend.

Bellini Valli says
These pancakes were excellent weren’t they Kevin? The best thing is no sugar required…all the sweetness comes tfrom the fruit itself.
Oooh- this looks like a great use for some of my leftover mangos.
Vicarious Foodie says

Clever idea especially with the puree, they look so healthy. I know I would ruin that by smothering it with butter!
oh my GOD!! Those pancakes look heavenly!
Mangoes and pancakes, what a great combo!!! (And I hadn’t any recipe for pancakes, so thank you!!)
Kudos for making pancakes from scratch. Yours look so delish!
Looks like mangoes are in season now! I’m starting to see them in food blogs 😀
You cannot go wrong with mango as far as I’m concerned. Looks yummy and would really love to have them for breakfast right now. Teleportation, maybe? 😉
i have to say, those pancakes look more than “pretty good”!! i can see myself eat six or seven and still not being satisfied. 🙂
Those pancakes look tasty! I love the idea of the mango and banana too!
I’m all about tropical pancakes. These look great! Mangos are really cheap right now, aren’t they?
I have to remember to make this the next time someone gives us a bag of mangoes!
I love mangoes…the pancakes look out of this world! Great dish.
coconut milk and mango with pancakes sounds amazing. what a great breakfast.
I feel a competition coming on between you and Ben (The Mango King). How can mangoes and bananas possibly be anything but fantastic.

Great recipe. I often make banana pancakes, but never that good. I love the addition of cardamom and the coconut milk.
