After a number of tasty disasters, I have finally been able to create my first success at gluten-free, dairy-free and egg free baking. These lovely biscuits did not last long – my kids (yes, both of them which is a miracle) gobbled them up. My daughter really loved them, and as she has an aversion to all baked goods, this was worth a victory dance or two (or three, who’s counting?).
This is a guest post from my husband. He and C are the chief chef’s for this recipe. All I can say is that this is on very high rotation at our house. Over to him!
Coconut Pancake Stack
This recipe came about through experimentation, desperation, and the inspired input of a 3 year old. We call it pancakes. The finished product is probably technically closer to a pikelet (around 10cm in diameter and about 6mm thick). So I hope the purists out there don’t get too upset. I have no idea just how thin you could get this and have it still remain a coherent pancake, so they shall be pancakes in name.
The following recipe feeds two adults and two small bottomless pits on legs, and there might be some left over if the little ones aren’t completely ravenous.
Assuming you use the plain pancake recipe, then a good topping is a fruit smoosh (name coined by C at age 3). For a smoosh, you basically cook diced fruit in a little butter for as long as it takes for the juices to release a little and the fruit to warm through. Continue reading “Pancakes and Fruit Smoosh”
I decided to go for a change of pace and do a nice cake recipe. Don’t worry – I’ll be back to the homeschooling series next post!!
This is the cake my other half requested for his birthday. As he doesn’t like icing or sweet cakes, this is my version of an almost-savoury cake that’s still dessert-like enough for a birthday. It won’t rise terribly high, but it’s a moist, almost bread-like cake with a crunchy outer shell – delicious!
