Ode to Gluten Free Pancakes
I have missed pancakes! In general, with gluten free, I have cut back on carbs. I usually make pancakes when the grandkids are here. We are not seeing them right now and we have not made pancakes lately. Ode to Gluten Free pancakes, I’m so happy to have found you!
You may have had to go gluten free for your own health or perhaps you have a family member or friend that is now gluten free. You could make your day or theirs by making gluten free pancakes for breakfast sometime.
How to you make them?
It has become easier and easier to make gluten free foods. There are recipes galore now. But let’s say you have been a box pancake maker with your busy brain and time.
There is a box pancake to the rescue…Krusteaz Gluten Free Buttermilk Pancake Mix
You can find it on the Amazon link above, but we happen to have it at our local Hy-Vee in the Gluten Free aisle. If you are not gluten free, it may amaze you to go down that grocery aisle sometime and see how convenient gluten free choices have become.
This mix uses the typical approach, you need cold water, milk, and eggs with the mix. It isn’t quite as easy as the just water mixes, but it is still easy.
Instructions are on the box and you vary the amounts of ingredients to the amount of pancakes you want to make.
There are also a multitude of Pinterest recipes to try. I’m working my way through them to find my ultimate recipe. I’ve also seen some good mixes that you can make yourself to make pancakes easily. As I work through this I hope to share a recipe in a future post.
How was it?
As I still have a lot of the regular gluten filled pancake mixes, I had been making my batch and the batch for everyone else. As it was just my hubby and me today, I made only the gluten free batch.
I asked him if he liked them and he said they were good. Next, he asked if they were gluten free. I said yes, and he said hmmm, I never would have known.
How is that for a start? You can get away with it once you find a recipe that you like enough.
Keeping Pancakes Warm
Gluten Free or not, pancakes are best warm. I keep ours warm by putting them in a basket with an old dishtowel. This dishtowel is a little brown with age and butter. I’ve used it for years as my roll and pancake wrapper. My brother once tried to throw it away when he was visiting and went through all my kitchen (that could be a whole post).
How do you keep your pancakes warm?
I’m so happy to have pancakes, butter, syrup and eggs today. It is good to keep my carb level down but today was a happy pancake day. Give gluten free pancake mix or a recipe a try. You might really like it.
There is only one way that this would have been better…BACON!
