Coconut Waffles with Tropical Fruit

ImageAfter a trip to Punta Cana, I was inspired to modify my favorite waffle recipe by substituting coconut milk for the milk and coconut extract for the vanilla.  It added a subtle flavoring without altering the texture of the recipe.  I love making this for overnight house guests and serving it with tropical fruit sprinkled with shredded coconut for a breakfast outside in the summer.  It is very easy, delicious and gets rave reviews everytime.  It would make a perfect Mother’s Day breakfast!



2 c flour

1 tsp salt

4 t baking powder

2 T sugar

2 eggs

1 1/2 c coconut milk

1/3 c unsalted butter, melted

1/2 t coconut extract (you can substitute rum extract to make pina colada waffles)

1-  Combine all dry ingredients.

2-  Mix together eggs, milk, butter and extract.

3-  Incorporate the dry ingredients to the egg mixture.

4-  Laddle onto a hot waffle iron until puffed up and golden.

5-  Serve with fresh fruit and sprinkle shredded coconut on top.  I used mango, peach, blueberry, blackberry and kiwi.  Serve maple syrup on the side.

  1. Hi, Johanne! I love waffles! Had some this morning, in fact. And yesterday morning! I make up the dry ingredients in large batches and store it in the pantry so that all I have to do is add the wet ingredients. I’ve never tried coconut waffles, but they sound and look wonderful! You so artfully applied the fruit!!! I would’ve just tossed it on there and said, “Eat it, or go on to the McDonald’s down the street to see if you can do better!” 🙂

    I want to acknowledge how much I like your black wicker with the black & white striped cushion. Very chic!

    Have a happy Mother’s Day weekend!

    • That black wicker with black and white cushions would look great with your cherry table setting! Very FRENCH, I think! :)))) If you love coconut and waffles, this will be a dish made in heaven! I doubt you throw anything together Alycia! Happy Mother’s Day weekend to you. Hope the extreme weather in KC has passed.
