Gluten Free Pancakes with Strawberries and Cream

Pancakes gluten free with strawberries

Last night when I’d completely forgotten to get anything out of the freezer AGAIN and the kids were grumping at me for food, I found myself in a bit of a situation. Since the kids were diagnosed with Coeliacs, it took away a lot of my ‘easy’ meal options. I’m fine with that, but it means meals need a little more forethought, and as we’d had pasta the night previously, I really didn’t feel like pasta yet again.

I’d made strawberry jam, a few days previously, (recipe coming) and so, what better way to feed the kidlets jammy sticky things than pancakes?

I like pancakes, they’re easy and topped with all the right things, they’re delicious.

My strawberry jam, the first batch, I didn’t add enough sugar too and it’s more of a strawberry sauce. But that was even better to be honest.

So, I cooked up a batch of pancakes, topped them with strawberry jam/sauce, applesauce (home made, of course), cream and fresh strawberries.

And oh my word, they were fantastic.

Much recommended.

Ingredients:

1 cup of gluten free Self Raising Flour – I use the Orgran brand, it works really well.
1 cup of gluten free Plain Flour
2 eggs
1 cup of milk
enough water to make the batter the consistency you want. Mine was medium thick.
pinch of salt

You could also add a teaspoon of vanilla essence if you wanted, or a tablespoon of sugar.

Method:

Mix the 2 flours together and make a well in the centre. Add the 2 eggs and the milk and beat, adding water until you’ve got the consistency you want.

Cook 1/2 cup amounts in an oiled pan until bubbles form, before flipping and cooking the other side.

Serve with whatever toppings you desire. Jam and cream is my favourite, although lemon and sugar is common too.
