Desperate For Pancakes
Posted 09 April 2004 - 06:40 PM
I am dying to eat something sweet for breakfast and french toast or pancakes sounds absolutely wonderful!!
..... I am allergic to corn, eggs, wheat (like the rest of us), nuts, dairy (all forms as far as I know, not willing to risk it)... well, and I think thats it. Ooooh no wait, Soy too. Uuuuugh
Anyway, I would Loooooooovvveeee a recipie for something along these lines.
Also, what type of syrup would be ok considering my multiple allergies..... Would just plain ol simple 100% maple syrup work?
Hope you guys got something, anything. I have a sweet tooth calling!

Ener-G Foods make a great egg replacer, I think it's potato based rather than corn. You could make pancakes with a rice/potato/tapioca flour mix (3 parts white rice flour, 1 part potato starch - NOT flour - 1 part tapico starch, 1 part brown rice flour) and use the egg replacer and rice milk.
I don't have my cookbook right by me offhand, but I'll look up my pancake/waffle recipe after I get back from Easter service.
I know how you feel....when I was first diagnosed, I was also shocked to find out I was allergic to: shellfish, crustaceans (these two I knew about..I get incredibly sick...nearly hospital sick), garlic, onions, all peppers, tomatoes, yeast, rice (this was a bugger....nearly ALL gluten-free baking contains rice!), beans, peas, bananas, grapes, buckwheat, and a few others.
After almost 18 months of being gluten-free, the only ones that remain are the peas/beans, onions, garlics, peppers, shellfish and yeast. I can now eat rice and the others...yay! :-)
Anyway, you should be able to revise most gluten-free recipes to work with the fava bean flour mix or rice flour mix like I mentioned above. You can also experiment with flours...I've found the *best* mixture for me to be white rice, potato and tapoica starch and amaranth flour. That provides a nice "bite" to the mix and is nearly like a normal wheat flour blend.
Good luck and let me know if you'd like my recipe :-)

The recipe on the Bob's Red Mill package calls for:
1 egg (so you'd want to find the egg replacer the other person mentioned)
1/4 cup apple juice
1 tsp oil
1/4 cup amaranth flour
1/4 tapioca flour
3 tbsp arrowroot powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
Add a little honey on top - or even better, fruit jam - and I love 'em.
