Her daughter has celiac disease, and Karen has become adept at drumming up tasty alternatives to typical family favourites. Check out her tips for making your own tin of gluten-free flour, below.
Here is the pancake recipe we made this morning. Even our non-gluten free friends liked them!
- 1 cup (140 g) GF flour mixture (see recipe below)*
- 1/2 tbs (6 g) cane sugar
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 cup (235 ml) organic milk substitute (rice, almond or hemp milk all work well)
- 1 tbsp (15 g) applesauce or pear sauce
- 2 tbsp (28 ml) oil (safflower, almond, coconut or grape seed)
In a separate bowl, whisk together milk, applesauce, and oil.
Add milk mixture to flour mixture all at once. Stir with a rubber spatula until just blended.
Heat a large nonstick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Drop batter by the tablespoon. Flip when bubbles start to form in the batter and stay open.
Gluten Free Flour Mixture:
- 3 parts sorghum flour
- 3 parts potato flour
- 2 parts tapioca flour
