Summertime Blueberry-Peach Pancakes (Gluten-Free)

Just about everyone's favorite. Pancakes have to be at the top of the cravings list for people new to a gluten-free diet. Good gluten-free pancakes are definitely at the top of the favorites list for gluten-free folks in the know.

However, in summer, when the blueberries and peaches are here, I like to whip up a batch of blueberry or peach pancakes, or, if I'm feeling especially summery, a batch of blueberry-peach pancakes. I like to use Bob's Red Mill, but I've used Sylvan Border Farms with equally good results.

Tip: When using milk, I use raw unpasteurized milk.
Raw milk is hypo-allergenic and does not trigger lactose intolerance. If you can't use raw milk, try buttermilk or yogurt.

Ingredients:
1 ½ cups Bob's Red Mill Gluten-free Pancake Mix
¾ cup milk, buttermilk, or yogurt
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 large egg
A few blueberries
1 peach

Directions:
Mix ingredients thoroughly in a large bowl. (Batter should be somewhat thick, not runny, and come off the spoon in larger individual clumps, rather than a stream). Let batter stand a few minutes. Coat a griddle or frying pan lightly with olive oil. Heat cooking surface to medium-high.

Once hot, apply a small bit of oil and test a small portion of batter, and adjust temperature accordingly. I find a slightly lower temperature and longer cooking time allow the batter around the fruit to cook more fully.

Slice peaches about 1/8 inch thick.

Spoon about a 6-inch circle of batter into pan. Fruit pancakes can be a bit heavier than regular pancakes, so I make a cake about 6 inches across.  Once the batter is in the pan and cooking, add peach slices in a pinwheel pattern.  Add blueberries between the peach slices. When the bottom of the cake is nicely cooked, and the top is bubbling, flip it over and cook the fruit side. It's okay if the sugars in the fruit caramelize a bit from the heat.

Makes sure bottom is well-cooked and cake is done. To ensure it's done, poke the center with a toothpick. If the toothpick comes out clean, it's done.

Garnish with peach slices and blueberries. Serve with butter and pure maple syrup.

Other fruit possibilities:
Nectarines
Bananas
Apples
Strawberries
Blackberries

check out CoQ10, not related to celiac (as far as I know) but for balance issues.

remind your hubby, "if mama ain't happy, ain't nobody gonna be happy."

Thank you for all your help with this. I was also wondering if I could ask and hope you don't mind, will they be able to tell Celiac on the camera or will it be down to the biopsies they take? My endoscopy is on the 9th, and I am worried about not having enough gluten to show.

Vegetarian here too, celiac really makes it tough as all the Quorn meat replacement products bar the odd one or two are out Then there's all the scare sites saying only paleo type diets will repair your insides but guess what they're all heavily meat / fish based. @Ennis_TX has some good ideas for meals

Wow guys just read all the replies Thankyou all so much!!! There are so many things you've all said that has triggered a light bulb in my little head! The glasses may not be clean!! I will put this to a test. One night I'll stick to bottles of cider (double checked are gluten-free) another I'll try the Gin or William chase vodka if I can find it! And see the effects. if I loose many days due to these not working I'll see a practitioner and see what the deal is! Before I was diagnosed at Coeliac... I went to a herbalist who did a test and said corn is funny on my body!!! But then 18months later (when I became incontinant and lost a lot of weight) my bloods came back positive (after begging the docs and telling them it wasn't IBS) i don't tend to snack at bars on food but I must admit I never thought it could be the way it's served!! The humour and information has made me feel so much better thanks all xxx
