11 Feb Apple & Cinnamon Pancakes!
I love pancake day! I’d been dreaming up all sorts of flavours I could do, and also wanted to have a go at a gluten-free recipe and see how different it tasted to regular flour. Turns out it is just as tasty in this instance!
The gluten-free flour I used was a Dove’s Farm flour blend, which worked very well. It will work with any other flour too. You can use any sugar, however at the moment I love but I prefer to use coconut palm sugar. Coconut palm sugar is also very sweet and tasty, so it just adds to the deliciousness.
These pancakes will take longer to cook than those with eggs in as they are thicker. However, I think the thickness makes them much more luxurious! You can use two frying pans so you can cook two at once. Or if you have a very big frying pan, you may be able to fit two portions inside. This just makes it quicker to get to the eating part!
I was having fun thinking of flavours. Everyone seems to do blueberry (partly because it tastes so good!) but I wanted to find something a bit more unusual. I am a massive cinnamon fan, and I also adore the crispy organic apples I pick up from my local farmers market. And the combination of the two is a winner. I was also toying with coconut and raspberry, or chocolate chip and banana. Hmmm, all delicious. Who says you can’t make two batches anyway!
