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.
This recipe comes to us from Alice DeLuca.
Mix in bowl:
1 cup brown rice flour
½ cup potato starch flour
¼ cup tapioca flour
¼ cup cornstarch
1 tablespoon gluten-free baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
½ teaspoon salt
Mix in a second bowl:
1 ½ cups almond milk
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
Stir the two mixtures together. Heat a non-stick pan on medium, add butter or margarine. When pan is hot, pour batter to form pancakes (½ cup makes a beautiful big pancake), and sprinkle with frozen blueberries. Wait until the bubbles that form in the pancake start turning into holes (if you dont wait long enough the pancake will be hard to turn) but not so long that the pancake burns, and then flip over. When other side is cooked, transfer to plate and serve with real maple syrup.
To use this recipe for waffles, use only 2 eggs and add another tablespoon of oil. Waffles take 4-6 minutes to cook.
