Recipe:  Easy Homemade Gluten-Free Pancakes  

                                                                        

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 c. brown rice flour
  • 1/2 c. sorghum, buckwheat or quinoa flour
  • 1/4 c. tapioca starch flour
  • 2 T. brown sugar
  • 2/3 t. zanthan gum
  • 3 t. baking powder
  • 1/4 t. salt
  • 1 t. cinnamon, if desired
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 c. non-dairy milk
  • 1/2 c. water
  • 2 T. olive oil
  • 1 1/2 t. vanilla

Measure first eight ingredients and whisk together in a small bowl.

Whisk eggs until creamy and blended in a separate bowl. Mix in milk, water, oil and vanilla. Stir in dry ingredients until just blended. Let dough rest for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat skillet on medium heat. Pour dough into desired size pancakes in greased skillet. Turn pancakes when they start to bubble on top. Fry until golden.

Be creative. Remember pancakes can be topped with many things besides syrup...melted jelly, nut butter/ bananas/honey, applesauce.... Have fun!

Note:

This is a favorite mix of mine to give for Christmas using the buckwheat flour where it gives a choice, adding 1 T. extra brown sugar, using the 1 t. cinnamon, and adding 1/3 c. of both finely chopped dried cherries and pecans. The receiver only has to add the liquid, eggs, vanilla and oil. Put in a plastic bag or glass jar, add pretty ribbons and a cute tag with instructions for a great gift!
