There’s nothing quite like a stack of fresh pancakes with syrup drizzling down the sides! And these gluten-free pancakes are so good you won’t even miss the wheat!
When I was a child, our family was invited over for dinner at a neighbor’s place.
After dinner, we rode with them to collect buckets of sap from their sugar maples. Then we went to their garage and watched as the sap cooked down into syrup.
Interesting how memories fog up over time. I cannot remember exactly how the cook-vats were set up, or how they stirred them or any of those details.
But, I will never forget tasting the sap at different stages as it cooked down. Nor will I forget the sweet smoky smell that resulted from the maple syrup making process.
To this day we still use real maple syrup. It’s just a thing. Maple syrup and pancakes is not a breakfast food around here, it’s a very popular dinner instead!
Just the other night as we were enjoying our pancake dinner, Jason turned to me and made this comment, “I’m not sure if I’m just getting used to them, or you’re getting better at making them, but these gluten-free pancakes are pretty good!“.
Well, I’ll take that compliment! Gluten-free pancakes ARE good once you have the right recipe!
Today I am giving you my recipe for gluten-free pancakes!
