Considering I made President’s Choice Gluten-Free Buttermilk Pancake Recipe with their PC Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour Blend, I thought it was only fair to see how their flour did with a recipe I have been making for decades. This is the final instalment in the of the PC gluten-free foodie odyssey.
In a large mixing bowl add: 1 cup flour, 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1/4 tsp baking soda, 1/8 tsp fine sea salt and…
1 tsp of ground cinnamon. Yes, the cinnamon will darken the pancakes but it adds so much flavour and is good for you. I have been doing this for years, ever since I heard that cinnamon can help stabilize blood sugar.
Whisk together 1 cup milk, 1 egg, 1 tsp vanilla extract and 1 tbsp canola oil. Add to the dry ingredients and stir until it just kind of comes together.
Which with the PC Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour Blend did not happen and it was so dark! As a result, I added another 1/4 cup of flour because it was so liquidy.
Using an ice cream scoop I divvy the batter into 7-8 generous size pancakes on a hot grill.
Then I add the frozen blueberries on top. Once the pancakes get bubbles on top, I flip them over and cook them through.
I serve them with turkey bacon, which Reg LOVES!
These were… OK. I wish I could say they were the same but they were not. They were not bad but we could tell they were different and not better. Still, shocking that they were gluten-free. No grittiness, no heaviness… Just a little differentness.
That said, the President’s Choice Gluten-Free Buttermilk Pancake Recipe was BETTER made with their gluten-free flour than these gluten-filled blueberry pancakes! Their Crackled Chocolate Cookies were great and did OK in my Strawberry Rhubarb Turnovers. Which, for gluten-free, is pretty damn impressive.
If I was gluten-intolerant, this is the flour I would use. Made with tapioca starch, modified potato starch, corn flour, modified cellulose and xanthan gum… this is a winning combination and is going to help the quality of so many people’s lives.
For those who can not have gluten, I give this product five out of five wooden spoons. For us? I am going to pass. I did not find the quality of my life or health to improve as a result of using PC Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour Blend and Reg has been quite eager for this gluten-free kitchen phase to pass. I will keep it on hand for those I know who have gluten issues but for us, it is back to good old fashion wheat flour please.
