...Pretty Akward, I'd say, okay, a lot!
I was a complete and utter slug this morning, everything is taking twice as long; As you could probably tell from the fact that i was still in my sweats and making breakfast at noon. Oh well! After putting the groceries away, quickly snapping a photo of these delicious pancakes and gobbling them down in between grocery bags emptied, i finally have the chance to tell you all about a delicious, gluten-free pancake mix that is going to get me through a couple weeks worth of mornings.
There are so many options out there for a pancake mix, but i had to stick with my favorite basic recipe from Mel's Kitchen Cafe. After making a few changes and halving the recipe i have to say they turned out delicious! Nutty, slightly sweet and moist, a wonderfully filling breakfast and a nice break from the regular cold cereal. Having the mix at hand makes it much easier to make these bad boys quickly and with little mess to clean up.
Gluten- Free Buckwheat Pancake Mix
Adapted from Mel's Kitchen Cafe
4 C. Buckwheat Flour
1 1/2 Tbs. Baking Powder
1/2 Tbs. Baking Soda
1/2 Tbs. Salt
1 1/2 Tbs. Molasses
1 Tbs Honey
1/2 C. Grape seed Oil
Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Slowly drizzle in honey, molasses and oil. Mix together with wooden spoon, followed by your hands until crumbly and holds together. Test a clump with your hands, pressing it together, if it stays together it's done, if it's still too crumbly add a little more oil. Store in airtight container for up to 2 weeks or in the fridge or freezer indefinitely.
To make the pancakes mix equal amounts of pancake mix with equal amounts Keefer (i used peach Keefer and it gave them a nice subtle peach flavor). 1/2 cup mix to 1/2 cup milk made about 4 small pancakes. For a larger batch, mix 1 cup of buttermilk to1 cup of mix with 1 egg. Pour about 1/3 cup of batter onto hot cast iron skillet or a griddle and cook until bubbles form and edges are set, flip and cook for 1-2 minutes more. Serve with a little bit of butter and honey or maple syrup. A nice berry syrup would be great too!
