Break the coconut cream into very small pieces in a bowl. Measure in the peanut butter and flour. Add the flour and enough water to make a batter.

Heat the oil in a large frying pan and put tblsps of batter in the hot oil. Fry gently until the top side is set and the bottom side is crispy. Flip over and cook the other side.

Serve immediately with the chill sauce drizzled over.


I had these for breakfast this morning, but mis-calculated and only made half the mix I should have done, so you actually get twice as much as in the picture. Wondered why I was still hungry! It was yummy, I used crunchy peanut butter and the little bits of nut gave a nice texture, with the flavour of coconut humming away underneath.

    I think the white stuff is where the coconut oil has separated a bit
    Glad you liked them 🙂

    Just tried these. I had some sachets of creamed coconut in so cut off about a quarter of one sachet (not the white stuff on the end, the proper coconut, what is that white stuff anyway?) And used olive oil that I had in. The chilli sauce really gives it zing. I would probably add a pinch of salt in future. But they were great really good texture and flavour. Lovely, definitely have these again.

    sometimes I think I should take a leaf out of Jack’s book and call the recipes something a bit more creative, disguising what’s actually in them. But I always seem to fall back on the descriptive names. Yes, I agree, it doesn’t necessarily sound like something I’d want to make. Well done for trying them anyway, and a relief you liked them!

    Wow! Thank you for another fantastic recipe. To be honest I wasn’t sure I was going to enjoy this one, but it tastes wonderful. I put the chilli sauce on the side as I thought I wouldn’t eat much of it, but it really makes the dish. I’m looking forward to finishing the batter off tomorrow……or maybe later today.
    Thanks Lesley, you’re a star x
