We are starting the final week of Blogging marathon today. My theme for this week is 'Kid friendly Breakfast' dishes for Valli's Kid's Delight event being hosted this month by Nisha. So I have 3 breakfast dishes that got 100% approved from my kids. My daughter even helped me make these pancakes.First up are these Almond-Orange Pancakes. Idea to make them came from Simi's Almond meal pancakes. I had some almond meal in the pantry along with gluten free flour from Trader Joes (one of my impulse buys), so decided to make the pancakes gluten free and vegan too. I knew my kids love pancakes, but I was a little worried if they would like the orange flavor and the texture of these gluten free ones. I shouldn't have worried, they loved them a lot. The leftover pancakes freeze beautifully -- wrap them tightly in foil and place them in a ziploc bag. Just toast them until soft before serving. The sweet orange syrup tastes amazing with the pancakes, but the leftovers can be drizzled over pound cake or ice cream.
Blogging Marathon# 67: Week 4/ Day 1 Theme: Kid's Delight -- Breakfast Dish: Almond-Orange Pancakes We are starting the final week of Blogging marathon today. My theme for this week is 'Kid friendly Breakfast' dishes for Valli's Kid's Delight event being hosted this month by Nisha. So I have 3 break...Pavani
Gluten free flour (I used Trader Joe's brand flour or just use regular all purpose flour)
Egg replacer powder (whisked in 6tbsp Water) or use 2 large eggs
For the Orange Syrup:
Freshly squeezed Orange juice
To make the Pancakes:
In a large mixing bowl, combine almond meal, flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.
In another mixing bowl, whisk almond milk, egg replacer mixture, vanilla, orange zest and oil.
Add the wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix gently until combined. Try not to over-mix. Let the batter rest for 10~15 minutes.
Heat a griddle on medium flame, pour a ladle of batter and cook until bubbles start to form on the top and the bottom is golden, about 1~2 minutes. Gently flip and cook on the other side for another 1~2 minutes. Remove onto a plate and serve hot with orange syrup.
To make Orange Syrup:
Combine orange juice and sugar in a saucepan. Let the mixture boil for 15~20 minutes. Serve with pancakes. Store the leftover syrup in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
