Chef Tips and Tricks

Why are these Gluten Free Banana Pancakes so light and fluffy? 

Thanks for asking! In order to keep these pancakes light, we have added extra baking powder and eggs. Peetz S.M.A.R.T blend is made with high fibre ingredients, that absorb a lot of moisture. The eggs help add more liquid and protein. The baking powder lifts the structure of the pancakes.

How do I make sure pancakes are cooked in the middle?

Heat the griddle or pan to medium-high heat and have the oil sizzling. Then, add the pancake batter. If the  heat is too high the pancakes will cook on the outside, before the inside.

Wait until the pancakes start to bubble , about 6 minutes. Then, flip and cook for another 2 minutes.

Keeping the pancakes all the same size, by dropping with a 1/4 cup measuring cup, ensure an even cooking time.

Is there something I can add to Gluten Free Banana Pancakes to change up the flavour?

Yes! We like whole pecans or walnuts, to add some bite and protein. One quarter cup to a half cup will do. Leave the nuts whole for best results.

You can also add some chocolate chips, instead of nuts, in equal amounts.

What is Peetz S.M.A.R.T Blend made from?

S.M.A.R.T stands for Sorghum, Millet, Arrowroot, brown Rice and Tapioca.

Five Reasons to Invest in Cast Iron Cookware 

  1. Cast iron skillets are perfect for baking this recipe for German Pancakes. Once you have made them, we are sure these pancakes will become a family favourite. They are delicious and versatile!
  2. Cast iron cooks more evenly. It holds its heat and has fewer hot spots.
  3. Cooking with cast iron gives your body a boost of iron. That’s right. The iron is absorbed right into the food, enriching your body with nutrients.
  4. Cast iron is naturally non-stick, which results in an easy clean up.
  5. This metal is durable resulting in cookware that does the job in the kitchen for years to come. So, its worth the investment in the long run.
