These Gluten Free Quick and Easy Morning Pancakes are an absolutely perfect gluten free pancake made with Cup 4 Cup Gluten Free Flour. You can make these any morning!
I cannot tell you how ecstatic I am to write this post!
No, not because I love spending my Friday nights sitting at the computer typing away, as much fun as you may think that is. Yes, I can feel all your jealous stares in this very moment. But, I am ecstatic because I found a NEW PRODUCT!!!
Not just any new product, but I am talking about a life saving type product here. Like if my house was burning down, I may consider turning back around to save this item from my pantry. Which actually wouldn’t make a whole lot of sense since I could just go to the grocery store the next day and buy a new bag without having to incur any type of bodily harm.
BUT…point is, this product is amazing.
Cup 4 Cup Gluten Free Flour. That’s all I need to say.
I’ve heard about this flour before, but since I haven’t been too impressed with other gluten free all-purpose blends in the past, I haven’t wasted my time searching for it. But, the last time I went grocery shopping to stock up on my array of gluten free flours, I spotted a bag of this Cup 4 Cup. I was feeling adventurous (maybe a bit lazy, too) and thought I would give it a try. Who wouldn’t love using ONE flour instead of FOUR?!
Well let me tell you! I love this stuff!
In only two days I have made pancakes, cupcakes, and cookies. All these baked goods have completely different textures, yet each of them turned out perfectly using this gluten free flour blend. I am seriously in awe!
Now I can’t say that this flour will work for everything or will substitute exactly for a 1:1 ratio in all your favorite recipes. But my experience with it proves that it’s worth a try. The taste and texture of my baked goods have been spot on using this stuff.
My favorite thing I’ve made thus far have been these Gluten Free Quick and Easy Morning Pancakes.
They literally taste like REAL PANCAKES. You know, those pancakes that are light, tender, and fluffy? YES! Those pancakes!!!
I’m telling you, the excitement in Braelyn’s face knowing that first of all, I am willing to whip up pancakes in 10 minutes flat any morning of the week, and second of all knowing they are going to be delicious, is just priceless.
Seriously, she asks for pancakes all the time, but I just don’t have the time or energy to pull out 4-5 different flours (plus clean up) to fulfill her request. But now, only having to bust out one bag of flour, I am good to make pancakes any time. Although reading over what I’ve just written right now kind of makes me realize that I’ve turned into my 5 year old’s own personal chef/slave. Not sure that’s a good thing or not.
Oh well. Girl’s gotta eat and I like to cook, so looks like we make quite the pair.
And plus, thinking about upcoming Mother’s Day, who wouldn’t want to make that little munchkin happy??? Isn’t that what this motherhood thing is all about anyway? Giving joy to your children and finding joy in the service. Yeah, I’ve got it pretty good being a mama to two cute, spunky little turkeys. I really couldn’t ask for much more.
Except earplugs maybe. Earplugs would be nice on occasion.
But back to these pancakes. First of all, they are gorgeous. I just love how they look. They have a beautiful golden brown hue with a light golden center. Really, they are quite picture perfect.
Secondly, they taste as good as they look. So you can only imagine what they taste like! They have a slightly crisp buttery outside with an ultra soft and tender center. Just how I like my pancakes!
Here is the best part: no weird taste and no awkward texture. Just a normal absolutely delicious pancake.
Enough said folks.
What are your breakfast plans this Mother’s Day?
- 3 eggs, well beaten
- 1¼ cups milk (I used skim)
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 3 tablespoons melted butter
- ¾ teaspoon salt
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 1¼ cups Cup 4 Cup Gluten Free Flour*
- Begin heating a skillet over slightly less than medium heat (4 out of 10) while you make pancake batter.
- In a medium sized mixing bowl, beat eggs together with a whisk. Add milk, sugar, and melted butter and whisk until smooth.
- Add salt, baking powder, and gluten free flour to wet mixture and whisk until smooth.
- Spray skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Pour ¼ cup spoonfuls of batter onto skillet and cook for 3 minutes or until edges are set and pancakes are bubbly in the middle. Flip and cook 2 minutes more or until middles are cooked through.
- Remove from heat and serve warm with desired toppings.
