  1. Step 1

    Place sugar, lime leaves and 1/2 cup (125ml) water in a small saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring, until the sugar dissolves. Simmer for 2 mins or until syrup thickens slightly. Set aside to cool slightly. Remove and discard lime leaves. Add half the passionfruit pulp.

  2. Step 2

    Sift the flour and baking powder into a large bowl and make a well in the centre. Whisk the egg and coconut milk in a jug to combine. Add to the flour mixture and whisk until smooth.

  3. Step 3

    Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Lightly spray with olive oil spray. Pour four 1/4 cup (60ml) portions of the batter into the pan and gently spread each portion into a 10cm disc. Cook for 2-3 mins or until bubbles appear on the surface. Turn and cook for a further 2 mins or until pancakes are cooked through. Transfer to a plate and loosely cover with foil to keep warm. Repeat in batches with remaining batter, spraying the pan with olive oil spray between batches, to make 16 pancakes.

  4. Step 4

    Meanwhile, combine the mango and pineapple in a bowl. Add 1 tbs of the lime syrup and gently stir to combine.

  5. Step 5

    Serve pancakes with the mango mixture, remaining lime syrup and remaining passionfruit.

Recipe tip

Serve with coconut yoghurt, mint leaves, flaked coconut and shredded lime leaves

Use it up:
You'll have half a pineapple left over after making this recipe. Chop it up and add it to salads or use it as a pizza topping, or thinly slice it and add it to burgers for a hit of sweetness.

Clever storage: These pancakes can be frozen for up to 3 months. Place a layer of baking paper between each pancake, then wrap tightly in foil. Thaw in the fridge.
