If topping your pancakes with the blueberry coulis and Baileys Almande coconut cream, prepare these first.
For the blueberry coulis:
Put the berries and sugar in a small saucepan with 100ml water. Bring to a gentle boil, then simmer for 4 mins until the fruit is softening but still firm. Allow to cool.
For the Baileys Almande coconut whipped cream:
Open the chilled coconut cream and scoop off the fat formed at the top of the can, beat together with the Baileys Almande in a mixer with the whisk attachment
For the pancakes:
Heat a little olive oil in your best non-stick frying pan over a low heat.
Mix all the dry ingredients together.
Then combine the wet evenly and mix the two together, it should be evenly combined and thick but still runny.
For each pancake: Spoon some of your mix into the centre of your pan, rotating it to get a nice even round shape, fry for 20-30 seconds before carefully flipping with a spatula. Then cook for another 20-30 seconds or until done. This will keep well in the fridge for 2 days so you can pull it out anytime to make another pancake.
