Ingredients
For Mango Curd
  • 1 cup mango puree (fresh or canned – if using canned try to get unsweetened or adjust the sugar accordingly)
  • ¼ cup butter, room temperature
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • juice of ½ lemon
  • 2 eggs
  • dash of vanilla extract
For Pancakes
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • ¼ cup almond meal
  • 1 tbsp tapioca flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ cup mango curd (see above)
  • 2 tbsp milk + more as needed
  • 1 egg
  • little vegetable oil for cooking the pancakes
Instructions
For Mango Curd
  1. In a large bowl add butter and sugar. Cream till it turns pale. You want to pick a bowl that’s heat proof because you will cook the filling mixture on a double boiler in this same bowl.
  2. Add eggs one at a time and continue to whisk.
  3. Add mango puree and lemon juice. Continue to mix for a few minutes.
  4. Transfer to a double boiler and keep whisking slowly till the mixture turns thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. About 5 to 8 minutes.
  5. Cool for about 10 minutes before transferring into a jar.
For Pancakes
  1. In a large mixing bowl add egg and 2 tbsp milk. Whisk to combine roughly.
  2. Add mango curd and whisk to combine.
  3. In a separate bowl mix oat flour, almond meal and baking powder. Roughly stir to combine.
  4. Add the flour mix to the wet mixture and using a spatula mix to form a lump free pancake batter. If needed, adjust the consistency by adding milk.
  5. Drizzle some oil on a saucepan on medium low heat and make pancakes cooking them for about 1 to 2 minutes on each side.
  6. If the batter turns thick while you are making the pancakes (which it might as oat flour absorbs liquid), then just mix in a tablespoon of milk and the batter will get back to a spreadable consistency.
  7. For Assembling- Stack a few pancakes on a plate. Drizzle mango curd generously and top it with some pieces of fresh mangoes. Serve right away.
