Coconut Potato Pancakes (also called Coconut Fritters)


  • 2 cups unsweetened coconut milk
  • 4 large baking potatoes
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened dried coconut
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. Salt
  • 3 free range eggs, beaten
  • Coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted, for serving


Boil the potatoes in their skins, cool slightly and peel. Mash the potatoes. Add the eggs.

Sift the flour together with the baking powder and salt. Beat this mixture
into the potato and egg mixture.

Add the coconut milk. Drop batter by large spoonfuls onto a hot heavy frying pan, well-greased with coconut oil. Turn the pancakes when golden on one side (3-4 minutes). Cook until the second side is golden brown.

Serve with the melted butter on the side. Serves 4 to 6.
