Good evening all. It is rainy here in Ohio today and I could think of nothing better to have than a comfort food such as pancakes, topped with rich butter and creamy maple syrup.....Mmmmmmm!
I remember my Mom mixing up Bisquick pancakes when I was growing up on those cold damp days of Winter. The whole house smelled warm and comforting while they cooked. Now I can still enjoy that same great taste even in my new gluten free lifestyle.
I must admit that I even like the gluten free mix better than the original. The pancakes are light, fluffy and moist, actually moister in my opinion than the original mix. I also have always loved making Strawberry Shortcake from their mix, so it seems I am in Bisquick heaven at the moment!
I love the ease of working with gluten free mixes, and to be able to stay with a company I have virtually grown up using, is a great feeling.
Although the price is definitely higher for the gluten free version, it is a product I will definitely keep on my shelf. The mix is very versatile, from making pizza crust, chicken fingers, oven baked chicken, pancakes, waffles, biscuits and strawberry shortcakes to cookies.
The ingredients list is fairly short, with words even I can pronounce:
Rice flour, sugar, leavening (baking soda, sodium aluminum phosphate, monocalcium phosphate), Modified Potato starch, salt, xanthan gum.
*May contain soy ingredients.
The mix is distributed by General Mills, which is a sponsor of The Celiac Disease Foundation, and is made in a gluten free facility. This mix also contains no artificial colors or preservatives. The 16 ounce box costs just a little over $4.50 but there is enough mix to make a few of the recipes that are listed on the side of the box.
Mix, milk, oil and 1 egg are all that is needed for sweet, delicious pancakes to enjoy within a few minutes! You can even refrigerate leftovers, if there are any that is, and reheat for about 1 minute in the microwave. Try adding a few chocolate chips before flipping for some added sweetness...and a little added bliss!
*I used Coconut oil to fry these delicate morsels to add more fiber. Although you can smell the coconut scent as they cook, it does not leave any coconut taste to the pancakes themselves.
