“A crispy, golden, fried piece of heaven. Garnish with fresh fruit and a treadmill jog.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat a couple inches of oil in a large pan or pot to about 375. I don't use a thermometer; I just stick the end of a wooden spoon into the oil to test if it's ready. If it's hot enough, the little bubbles will form rapidly around the spoon.
  2. Combine the pancake mix, 7 Up, and coconut and mix thoroughly. Let sit for a minute or two.
  3. Spoon by one ladle-full at a time into the hot oil. The batter will spread out into a pancake shape. Fry until golden brown and crispy on the bottom, about 3 minutes, then flip and cook the other side the same.
  4. Remove with a slotted spoon onto a wire rack to drain and cool, dust with the granulated sugar while hot.
