Mango Pancakes


Mango Pancakes


For the Pancakes:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup diced fresh mango (about 1 medium mango)

For the Mango Sauce:

  • 1 cup diced fresh mango (about 1 medium mango)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup water

Optional Toppings:

  • Whipped cream
  • Fresh mango slices
  • Maple syrup or honey
  • Mint leaves for garnish


1. Prepare the Mango Sauce:

  • In a small saucepan, combine 1 cup diced mango, sugar, lemon juice, and water.
  • Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the mango is soft and the mixture is slightly thickened (about 5-7 minutes).
  • Remove from heat and let it cool slightly, then blend until smooth using a blender or immersion blender. Set aside.

2. Make the Pancake Batter:

  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • In another bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, egg, melted butter, and vanilla extract.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined (it’s okay if there are a few lumps).
  • Gently fold in the diced mango.

3. Cook the Pancakes:

  • Heat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat and lightly grease with butter or oil.
  • Pour about 1/4 cup of batter onto the skillet for each pancake.
  • Cook until bubbles form on the surface of the pancake and the edges look set (about 2-3 minutes), then flip and cook for another 2-3 minutes until golden brown and cooked through.
  • Repeat with the remaining batter, keeping the cooked pancakes warm in a low oven if desired.

4. Serve:

  • Serve the pancakes stacked on a plate, topped with the mango sauce.
  • Add optional toppings like whipped cream, fresh mango slices, maple syrup or honey, and mint leaves for garnish.

Enjoy your Mango Pancakes, a delightful breakfast that brings a taste of the tropics to your table!
