Sometimes, on weekend morning, we have a more elaborate breakfast. Last weekend, I decided to add some variety to the pancake recipe I usually make. There are also so many gluten free flours, it’s so nice to play with them. They all have their characteristic. I find buckwheat flour is a great substitute for whole wheat flour, which really give my daughter stomach pain, a lot more than white wheat flour.
You can make more and warm them up a bit the next day in the toaster. You can also freeze them and they are available anytime you want. When you think of what is sold in the frozen section, much more unhealthier than the one you can make. And as I always say “Once I start, I might as well do a bigger amount!” :-)
