Orange Pancakes (with Gluten Free Option)

Gluten Free Orange Pancakes

I just can’t bring myself to waste food. On a recent school day for our girls I made them orange and ricotta French croissants for breakfast. But I made too much and had tons of left over egg and milk mixture. So I decided to experiment by adding some gluten free flour to make gluten free pancakes.  Bit by bit I added the GF flour until the right consistency was reached and as you can see by the pictures, they look (and tasted) delicious.

Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 2+

Ingredients
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoons orange juice
  • ¼ cup milk
  • ½ teaspoon Kirkland pure vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon Kirkland maple syrup
  • 10-12 tablespoons gluten free flour. The exact amount will depend on the GF flour you use, I used Arnel’s All Purpose GF flour mix. Substitute regular flour if you like, the key is the batter must be the consistency of pancake batter. Note, if you use gluten free flour ensure it has xanthan gum.

Instructions
  1. In a bowl lightly whip the eggs.
  2. Mix in the remaining ingredients (whip cream, maple syrup, orange juice, milk, vanilla, zest, baking powder and flour. Adjust to ensure the mixture is pancake batter like – more milk if too thick, more flour if too thin)
  3. Warm a large fry pan over medium heat and then wipe the surface with a paper towel that has canola oil on it.
  4. When a couple of water drops bounce off the pan, add the pancake batter to the pan in ¼ to ⅓ cup amounts so as to create 4-6 inch diameter pancakes.
  5. Cook until bubbles form and then burst; at this time check the underside of the pancake for a nice golden brown color and if ready, flip the pancakes. Continue on the other side until done.
  6. Serve and top with cinnamon, maple syrup, and optionally with fresh fruit and nuts.
