Light and Fluffy Pancakes
Our family ENJOYS pancakes and with being gluten free it sometimes makes it hard to find the right texture to fit everyone's taste in our house. After quite a bit of experimentation I have finally came up with a great recipe that is LIGHT and FLUFFY. Best part NO OIL is being used and no buttermilk. This recipe makes a large amount of pancakes about 8 medium to large pancakes depending on the thickness of each pancake.
10oz Better Batter Flour
2tsp baking powder
2 1/2 cups Almond Milk
6 whole eggs
1 half gallon of vanilla ice cream ( you will not need the entire package)
1) Pre-heat your pan or griddle so that it is nice and hot and ready to cook your pancakes. Make sure that the heat isn't too hot or the pancakes will not cook in the middle. I use ceramic non-stick pans and use medium heat.
2) In a large bowl mix together your flour and baking powder together using a whisk and set aside.
3) In another small bowl mix together eggs, almond milk and vanilla together using a whisk making sure that the eggs are all broken up and mixed really well in your almond milk.
4)Pour your wet mixture on top of your dry mixture and whisk it together. You will have some lumps in your mixture this is completely fine.
5) Let your mixture sit for a couple of minutes as it will thicken. This will take about 2-3 minutes to thicken unless it thickened while you were whisking the mixture.
6) Pour your desired amount of batter onto your griddle or your pan. You can decide how thick or how thin you would like your pancakes. for thinner pancakes pour a small amount of batter and use a spoon or spatula to spread it out into a circular shape. For thicker pancakes pour more batter and use a spoon or spatula to get into a circular shape.
7) Watch your pancake to tell when it is ready to flip you will watch the outside edge and see if it has firmed up. The middle should have some bubbles in it as well. Flip your pancake and continue to cook from 1-3 minutes again this time depends on how thick or thin your pancake is.
8) Remove pancake from the pan and stack them on top of each other. This will help keep the pancakes warm while you continue to make the rest of your batter.
9) Take an ice cream scoop and place one scoop in the middle of the pancake and watch it slowly melt. ENJOY!
**you can make this a dessert or a breakfast treat for the kids, spouses or any loved one in your family. You can add fruit on top of the ice cream, melted peanut butter, chocolate, etc let your imagination run wild.**
