Ingredients - serves 4
For the pancakes150g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
250g almond milk or coconut milk
2 tbsp agave syrup
1 tsp good quality vanilla extract
Pinch salt, optional
For the topping/sauce
120g dark agave nectar
160g full fat coconut milk
3 tbsp brewed Owens coffee
1 tbsp finely ground Owens coffee
1 fresh pineapple, core removed and diced
2 tbsp toasted coconut for garnish
Juice of half a fresh lime
Put the plain flour and baking powder in a bowl, add the almond milk and whisk, add the agave syrup, vanilla extract and a pinch of salt, mix well and leave for 15 minutes before cooking.
Heat a small frying pan over a medium heat, add a good tablespoon of batter mixture to the pan, keeping it flat and level to make a good circle.
Cook for 30 seconds until the pancake is firm enough to slide when you shake the pan, flip it over and cook for another 20 seconds.
Remove the pancakes to a plate, cook the rest of the batter in the same way.
Put the dark agave nectar in a saucepan and bring to a boil for 2 minutes. Add the coconut milk, ground coffee and brewed coffee, reduce over a medium heat to the desired consistency, add the fresh lime juice and set aside until ready to serve.
Place one of the pancakes in the centre of a plate add a few pieces of the fresh pineapple, place another pancake on top and repeat the process.
Drizzle over the coffee and coconut sauce, garnish with toasted desiccated coconut.
