I expect this blog will be more than recipes but it is pancake Tuesday after all. It seemed appropriate to post our favourite pancake recipe with, as will always be the case, dairy free, egg free options. Even if you don’t have any dietary restrictions it’s a great recipe.
- 1 3/4 cup flour
- 2 tbsp cornstarch
- 1 1/2 tbsp sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
In another bowl whisk together:
- 1 1/2 cups plus 2 tbsp rice milk (or liquid of choice: water, soy milk, coconut milk, milk, etc.)
- 3 tbsp canola oil (or melted butter, or dairy free margarine)
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredient and mix gently. Don’t overmix.
- 1/2 cup chopped fruit (apples, berries, bananas) or nuts
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips
My son S is allergic to dairy (cow, goat and sheep), eggs, bananas, and tree nuts. I used to think baking for him was difficult. I also used to spend a lot of money on specialty foods for him until I started experimenting with recipes that I already had. Some minor substitutions and a bit of trial and error, and voila! I haven’t found something that I couldn’t bake for him! This is a recipe I modified from The Joy of Cooking.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Coat cookie sheets with nonstick spray or use parchment paper.
Whisk together in a medium bowl and set aside:
- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tbsp cornstarch
- 3/4 tsp baking soda
- 3/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
In a large bowl mix until well blended:
- 1/4 cup corn or canola oil
- 1/2 cup non-diary margarine (You can use less if you like. 2 tbsp will give you a decent cookie, but it needs to be eaten the same day…save them for the next day and you may break a tooth!)
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/3 cup corn syrup
- 3 tbsp rice milk (or soy milk, or coconut milk, or water, or liquid or your choice)
- 2 1/2 tsp vanilla
Stir into batter:
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 3/4 cup non-dairy chocolate chips
Let the mixture stand for a few minutes. Stir in the flour mixture. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto cookie sheets. Bake 7 – 10 minutes, careful not to overbake.
