Since starting the gluten free way of eating the one thing I have been craving is pancakes. I am having dreams about them at night. I am far from being comfortable baking gluten free with several different kinds of flours yet, so I set out to find a mix I could use easily. I found several different options, but when I found the Bisquick brand I figured I couldn’t go wrong. I have had a box of Bisquick brand mix in the cabinet since I was little.
The mix works for pancakes, waffles, biscuits, pizza crust and chicken breading. All things I love and would hate to never be able to eat again. My first attempt was pancakes. I didn’t want to add anything extra into them the first time until I knew how they would cook.
As I said in an earlier post, I am super picky when it comes to pancakes. I don’t like them too dark or too light. I also don’t like them too cakey or thick. This Bisquick mix was going to have a tall order to fill.
One pancake after another came off of the stove top the perfect color! And, they seemed to be nice and light. Unfortunately, I didn’t have any syrup in the refrigerator I could eat, so I topped them with butter, chocolate chips and dried Door County Cherries.
The pancakes themselves were a bit bland, so I will have to spice them up a bit next time. But, overall they were perfect for curbing the craving. The perfect color, perfect texture, and just plain yummy!
Yay for another staple that I have been able to convert to gluten free!!
