gluten-free pancakes and getting full

gluten-free pancakes and getting full

The last time I blogged about how dry the farm is, we got 14mm of rain.  Unfortunately that was 13 days ago and we haven’t had a drop since.

Last week, Bearhands and I had some work done.  We hired an excavator and operator and for two days, he worked on widening and clearing the dam.  The works mean that our new and improved dam should have double the capacity it did last week.  Now we just need to fill it.   new improved dam

Last year while we were getting to know each other, I was surprised to learn that so many of you are coeliacs.  So this year, I’ll experiment with a few gluten-free recipes.  Here’s some gluten-free pancakes just in time for Shrove Tuesday tomorrow.  They’re not the same as those made with plain flour, but if that pesky plant protein is the only thing standing between you and pancakes, they’ll do the job.

gluten-free pancakes

1/2 cup rice flour
1/2 cup coconut flour
1 egg
25g butter, melted
360ml milk

Add flours to bowl. Make a well in the centre.  Beat the milk, egg and flour together.  Gradually add the milk mixture to the flour, whisking until smooth.
Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat.  Melt a little butter in the pan and add about a 1/4 cup of mixture per pancake.  Cook one side for 3 -4 minutes, turn and cook for a further 3 minutes.  Note: you won’t see any bubbles appear on the surface of these pancakes, so you’ll just have to peek to see if they’re ready to flip.
Repeat, adding more butter to the pan between batches as necessary.gluten free pancake recipe

Keep your fingers crossed that mentioning the rain in this post works.  If it doesn’t I’ll be forced to perform a nude rain dance to fill the dam and I’ll have to be full myself before I can manage that!

what’s your favourite pancake topping? (mine is lemon + sugar)
