"Hey, this gluten free stuff isn't half bad!"
That's what my hubby said after I made pancakes for dinner last night. Let me back up a bit.
Sunday hubby and I went to Whole Foods to buy some gluten free flours and the extremely expensive xanthan gum plus various other items. Shhh, don't tell anyone that we ate something there as well even though we were heading to my parents house for dinner. Eh, dinner was going to be a little while so I had the curry chicken salad and hubby had the mac and cheese. Mmmmm. I digress. Where was I?
Oh that's right, we bought some of their large sausages that we like to cook on the grill. The sausages on sale were breakfast style so we decided to grill them tonight and then make some pancakes. The sausages were really good although a tad bit zippy for me.
Since I knew I was planning on pancakes I decided to research some gluten free recipes on the web. The final product was a combination of several that I changed around a bit. This is how I cook, most times, so measurements are approximate.
Gluten Free Pancakes
1 cup rice flour
1/3 cup tapioca flour
1/3 cup corn starch
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
Use a whisk to whisk the dry ingredients together well
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 cups buttermilk
Stir in the wet ingredients and allow to sit for a few minutes.
I used cooking spray on my non-stick griddle.
I added chopped pecans to some
They came out great! I will never miss "regular" pancakes!
