Hi there, it's me, Ms. Burrito, Mommy's (Chubskulit Rose) co-author at Kids e-Connection blog . I am excited to be able to blog again now that I am on school break. I am sure that Mommy mentioned here (maybe a lot) that I like to bake and once in a while cook breakfast for them. Last weekend, I made them pancakes and it is gluten-free.
Gluten Free Foods
I gathered some information from WebMD website about gluten free foods because I was curious. I want to know what is the purpose of a gluten free diet. I have learned that some people are born with a disease called celiac. This is a disease in which your body has an abnormal response to gluten. Eating gluten will damage the small intestines which in turn prevent important nutrients and vitamins from being taken into the body.
My Mom garnished the pancakes with fresh slices of strawberries.
Gluten Free Pancakes
I used a recipe I found from Allrecipes.com on YouTube. I just substituted the flour with Glutino All Purpose Flour. With a little help from mom on cooking the pancakes they came out pretty good. Here is some instructions on how to make some delicious, gluten free pancakes:
- 1 cup of Flour (substituted with Glutino All Purpose Flour)
- 2 Tbsp of Baking Powder
- 1 tsp of salt
- 2 Tbsp Sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 cup of milk
- 2 Tbsp of vegetable oil
First, put the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a bowl. Whisk together until evenly combined. Then, make a hole, or well, in the middle of the flour. Add inside it, the milk, and the egg and beat until fluffy. Finally, add your oil. Heat your pan to medium/low. Add some butter or oil so the pancakes don't stick. Add a small amount of batter and brown on each side. Add syrup and garnish with fresh fruit if wanted. Then, you have some delicious and gluten free pancakes!
My diet isn't completely gluten free because I don't have celiac disease. It is actually not that healthy for people without celiac to have a complete gluten free diet. That is because your body does not receive the right amount of protein that is in gluten. It is healthy to cut back on gluten but not go on completely gluten-free diet if you don not have the disease (again, if you do have celiac disease, gluten free is for you).
We ate the pancake with fresh strawberries and scrambled eggs. Mommy also put some dulce de leche in between those pancakes and drizzle some syrup on top.
Thanks Mom for taking the photos and uploading it in my post. The yellow roses that you see in our kitchen table are the fresh bouquet of roses that I received from our neighbors during our piano recital. Thank you Ate Sarah, Ate Liz, and Tita Angie. You made our recital very recital very special with your attendance.
