In Episode 45, we sought out the best Thermomix pancake recipes we could find, just in time for Mother’s Day. The twist on this week’s episode is that we decided to make these delicious recipes gluten and dairy free… not by using fancy ingredients but by simply substituting store-bought ingredients:
– GF self raising flour for self raising flour (or use plain flour + 2tsp baking powder per cup of flour)
– Rice milk for dairy milk
– Macademia oil for butter
Here are the recipes we chose this week:
Recipe 1 – ‘Hot Puffy Pancakes, Maccas Style’ (from ThermoDreaming)
If you are looking for the traditional breakfast pancakes in a a delicious fluffy stack… look no further. These are truly yum. We substituted the sugar for xylitol as well as the substitutions mentioned in the intro. We used a normal pan and greased with a bit of macadamia oil. The mixture was quite thick, so we used a pancake pen.
This is definitely not required… it was just to get them to spread out evenly without using the spatula. We flipped them over, and then gave them a little press with the back of the flip.
Recipe 2 – ‘Pear Pancakes’ (from ThermOMG)
This conversion from a Jamie Oliver recipe is a great way to have sugar-free pancakes. We did a good dollop of the batter (it was quite thick when made GF) and spread it out with a Super Spatula.
They were lovely and flexible, and were good reheated 2 days later!
Recipe 3 – ‘Cinnamon Scroll Pancakes’ (from The Road to Loving My Thermomix)
These are the fanciest ones of the bunch… and absolutely delicious. We are sure you’ll have more luck than us at getting the ‘swirl’ right… but the great news, a good looking swirl or not, they are just so yummy. Just remember that you are looking for a nice thick sauce (not a thick paste, as Bec thought). We used about 100g of macadamia oil to the recommended amount of sugar / cinnamon.
