gluten free sunday morning pancakes – we’re on Cloud 9

These pancakes are lightly sweetened with just a hint of a crust on the outside. They’re also easy to make so make lots ’cause you can freeze them. Try one thawed in the toaster with peanut butter or your favorite jam for a quick weekday breakfast.

Sunday Morning GF PancakesAny all purpose gf flour will work for these gluten free pancakes, but we like to use Cloud 9 – made in New Westminster, British Columbia and found at our local Costco. Made with Cloud 9 flour, these pancakes are high in fibre and protein and make a great meal Sunday morning or Tuesday night.

Who doesn’t love fresh ice cream? Make it with the kids while you wait for the fireworks to start. And since it’s Canada Day why not add a few chopped red maraschino cherries?

ice cream – a recipe good enough to scream for

gluten free ice creamIf “we all scream for ice cream,” why is there gluten in it? Really, ice cream should be inherently gluten free but some brands aren’t and others may be cross contaminated. If you make it yourself, you KNOW it’s gf (and you can control the fat content). Besides, it’s fun to do and this recipe is soooo easy, your kids will want to do it. It makes about 5 cups of premium flavoured vanilla ice cream but can be used as a base for other flavours. See below for some suggestions, but the only limit is your imagination!

You will need an ice cream maker of some sort. We use a Cuisinart model and it works great, but if you don’t want to buy an expensive electronic model, try one of these ice cream balls from LL Bean instead.

trimble cake – believe it or not, this is gluten free

Trimble Cake is a luxurious Orange Chiffon Cake that my mom always made for birthdays or special occasions. She would bake it in a tube pan and ice it with sticky and oh-so-sweet seven-minute frosting. But baked in an oblong pan, it adds a delicious twist to strawberry shortcake, which is how it is prepared here. It’s named after the neighbour who generously gave my mom her amazing recipe.
