Dairy-Free Coconut Pancake ~ 椰子薄饼


This is a delicious and easy pancake but instead of milk I used thin coconut milk.   Since coconut milk is lactose free, it can be used as a milk substitute by those with lactose intolerance.   The natural sweetness of coconut milk does add extra flavour to these panckes.  They are light, delectable, moist with a slight hint of coconut.  Great to go with fresh fruit and here I've served them with honey and persimmon.
