Casein Free Pancakes

Every Casein Free pancake I've tried has been- well, spongy and tough and just not a pancake.

I've tried several different recipes, even one entitled "Better Than Bisquick Pancakes". That was totally over sold. YUCK!

I don't know where I got this recipe but after a couple of tweeks I'm satisfied. It is not as good as a Casein Cake, but it's the best safe pancake I've found! I also have two variations that make them pretty specia! Shredded Apple Pancakes with Apple Cider Syrup & Casein Free Chocolate Swirl Pancakes.

Here is the basic Recipe:

2 Cups Four
1 t baking soda
2 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
1/8 C sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 Cup Soy Milk

Now for the fun!!!!!

Shredded Apple Pancakes with Apple Cider Syrup

Note* Shred an apple or two into the batter to add moisture (and nutrients)

Rachel's Apple Cider Syrup
(Yields 1-1 1/4 Cup)

1/2 Cup sugar
1 T cornstartch
1/8 t ground cinnamon
1/8 t ground nutmeg
1 Cup apple cider or juice
2 T "butter" spread, cubed
1 T lemon juice

1. In a small sauce pan combine first 4 ingredients and stir in the 5th until

2. Cook and Stir over Medium heat until thickened and bubbly, about 5 minutes.

3. Reduce heat to low; cook and stir 2 minutes longer.

4. Stir in "butter" & lemon juice.

Casein Free Chocolate Swirl Pancakes

1. Make pancakes using the basic recipe above.

2. Simply squeeze a swirl of Hersey's Chocolate Syrup (check to ensure it is Casein Free, or use another Casein Free variety)on cooking pancake as soon as you pour it into the skillet/griddle.

Note* Try to keep the chocolate syrup away from the edge- burnt chocolate syrup, though Casein Free is still a no no. Yuck!

I added some Banana sticks as a side and as you can imagine, it went over pretty well.

Do you have any recipes you'd like to share? Did you try this recipe? What did you think? I'd love to hear about your adventures in Casein Free Kitchening!
