Gluten-Free Dutch Pancakes will bring you back to your grandmother’s kitchen at breakfast time. Needless to say, these pancakes are a throwback to another era when Dutch Pancakes were offered on menus all over the United States of America, or in grandmother’s kitchens everywhere. However, I have heard of these pancakes also being called German Pancakes or Dutch German Pancakes, or even Bismark Pancakes as well. Suffice it to say they have a souffle texture with a slight lemon flavor. Indeed, these pancakes are a type of popover. Consequently, they are thicker pancakes and can be both sweet or savory.
Gluten-Free Dutch Pancake Notes:
Nevertheless, when I went grain-free and refined sugar-free to help heal my gut I had a difficult time finding recipes. Therefore, I began with what I knew and what was familiar. Hence, the first step was to start with recipes I had previously written and turned them into recipes I could again eat. While the next step was to try to turn those recipes into new ones that I could eat. Nonetheless, it was not as simple as just switching flours out. Therefore, it took a lot of time and experimentation to get the feel and sight knowledge for the recipe.
With my newfound knowledge, I set out to revamp some of my old recipes. In summary, this is one of those recipes. Gluten-Free Dutch Pancakes are not only light and airy they are decadent and almost creamy. Incidentally, if you like Dutch pancakes you’ll love these.
I had been craving pancakes. I use to make Dutch Pancakes a lot. So I revamped my recipe to be grain-free. Makes one large pancake. Perfect for two or more. See instructions for Monk Fruit Powdered Sugar.
