Gluten Free Cinnamon Pancakes with an Apple Cinnamon Compote

Apple Pancakes 1

I hope everyone had a Hoppy Easter (if you don’t celebrate, I hope you had a great weekend). Typically, our family would have a huge Easter dinner where my grandma would make her delicious lamb. With my mother’s passing, the holidays are now going to be different, very different. I honestly did not want to celebrate at all.

As a family, we went out to dinner Saturday night and celebrated being together. Sunday morning, my cousin, my brother, and I made a pancake breakfast. This was my first time attempting making Gluten Free Pancakes without a premade mix. They came out delicious!! I tried to measure the ingredients but sometimes I just add in ingredients or adjust as I am going along.

 

What You Need:

1 Cup of Gluten Free Flour (I like Bob Red Mills 1:1 Baking Flour)

2 Tablespoons Sugar

2 Teaspoons Baking Powder

2 Teaspoons Cinnamon

1/8 Teaspoon Salt

1 Cup of Buttermilk (I did 3 Tablespoons of Lemon Juice in a measuring cup and filled the rest with Soy Milk (or any type of milk you drink) to the one cup mark)

1 Egg

2 Tablespoons of Vegan Butter (can use regular butter), melted

Coconut Oil Spray (or any type that you like to use)

What To Do:

If you are not using buttermilk, put 3 Tablespoons of Lemon Juice in a measuring cup and filled the rest with Soy Milk to the one cup mark. Mix and let it sit for about 5 minutes (you want it to start to curdle a little).

Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl. Mix and add the wet ingredients. Mix until it is combined.

You don’t want to over mix because the pancakes won’t be as fluffy. In a pan or griddle, spray with coconut oil and let it heat up over medium heat. While it is preheating, you can cut the apples for the compote.

Apple Cinnamon Compote

What You Need:

1 Apple, cored and diced

1 Tablespoon Water

2 Tablespoons Honey

2 Teaspoons of Cinnamon

2 Tablespoons of Brown Sugar

1 Tablespoon of Vegan Butter, melted

What To Do:

Mix all ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook until the apples are soft and the liquids are thick.

Drop the pancake mixture into round circles in the pan leaving enough space for the pancakes to not overlap. Once the pancake starts to bubble, you know it is time to flip.
