Pancakes/Waffles

Pancakes/Waffles

Serves 6 – 8

236 g (1 ½ cup) Flour Mix

¼ cup beet sugar (1/3 cup sugar if using almond milk)

½ Tbsp cream of tartar

¾ tsp baking soda

½ tsp salt

¼ tsp xanthan gum

1 cup milk

3 Tbsp canola oil (6 Tbsp for waffles)

2 eggs, separated

Combine dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.  Add milk, oil, and egg yolks.  Beat with an electric mixer on medium-high for about two minutes (like making a cake).  Set aside while griddle heats up – this is a key step, otherwise the xanthan gum does not have time to develop.  Beat egg whites until stiff.  When griddle is hot, fold egg whites into batter and mix gently with a spoon.  Cook on 300 oF griddle for 2 – 3 minutes on each side or until brown and cooked through.

Ployes

Ployes (one-sided pancakes)

Serves 6 – 8

1 cup light Acadian buckwheat flour

¼ cup quinoa flour or almond mean

1 tsp cream of tartar

½ tsp baking soda

½ tsp plain salt

¼ tsp xanthan gum

2 eggs, beaten

2 ¼ cup water

Combine dry ingredients.  Combine eggs with about half of the water then stir into dry ingredients.  Stir well and add remaining water while continuing to stir until well mixed.  Set aside while griddle heats up – this is a key step, otherwise the xanthan gum does not have time to develop.  Stir well before scooping batter.  Pour ~1/4 cup of batter onto very hot (400 oF) griddle and cook without flipping until cooked through.  The more holes you have, the better.  Wrap around sausage and dip in maple syrup or spread jam and roll it up or do whatever strikes your fancy!
