Apple Pancakes (Gluten-Free)
In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease, and since then it has become an invaluable resource to people worldwide who seek information about celiac disease and the gluten-free diet.
In 1998 I created The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore! which was also another Internet first—it was the first gluten-free food site to offer a shopping cart-style interface, and the ability for people to order gluten-free products manufactured by many different companies at a single Web site.
I am also co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.
2 tablespoons gluten-free margarine
1 ½ teaspoon cinnamon
3 tablespoons sugar
4-5 Granny Smith apples
¾ cup milk
¼ cup rice flour
¼ cup tapioca flour
¼ cup potato starch flour
½ teaspoon xanthan gum
Make sure that your pan and its handle are rated to go to 450F.
Melt margarine in and add sugar and cinnamon, mix well. Thinly slice apples into pan. Cook, covered until apples are tender (10-15 min). Place pan, uncovered, in 425F oven for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, beat eggs and milk to together. Sift flour and add to egg mixture. Remove pan from oven, pour in batter. Return to oven. Bake until pancake is puffy and well browned (15-20 minutes).
