I was actually craving pancakes. It’s been quite awhile since I’ve actually craved something because I can eat whatever I want so there really is no need to crave anything. Made them coconut since I had leftover coconut cream and milk I wanted to finish.
They were slightly uncooked on the inside, but overall it still was delicious. I think it’s really the coconut cream that brings out the coconut flavor. I’ve got to buy myself more cans of coconut cream the next time I go shopping.
I tried making all of the pancakes even by using a 1/4 cup to pour it onto the pan. It’s what I’ve been also doing with cupcakes, and using a measuring cup really helps keep everything perfect. When I flipped the pancakes, some of the batter would spread across the pan so I basically just waited for it to get cooked a bit and broke it off of the pancake so everything would stay nice and neat.
I topped off the stack of pancakes with some honey and coconut flakes. I tried getting honey on the edges so when I sprinkled the coconut flakes, they would stick to the sides. Going over board with the coconut flakes was a good call for aesthetic reasons since if you were to order a plate of pancakes at a diner, they always go overboard with the powdered sugar or whipped cream which really attaches your eyes to them because of how delicious they look.
For taking photos of this, I actually used a tripod. I’m trying to use the tripod more since I really wanted sharp and crisp pictures. It seems like I’m having a lot of trouble with making super perfect photos that are “magazine worthy.” I now usually control the aperture when I take photos. One day I’ll be controlling all aspects—shutter speed, exposure, depth of field, etc. Maybe I need a change of backgrounds as well.
