I made chokecherry syrup for the first time this year. The chokecherries were courtesy of our own tree. Then I needed pancakes—gluten-free since I`m sensitive to gluten. Here`s the recipe I developed:
-1/2 cup flour—mixture of gluten-free flours like sorghum, buckwheat, rice, tapioca, corn, etc.
-2 tsp. Baking powder
-Quarter tsp. Salt
-1/4 cup vegetable oil
-Enough buttermilk to make a fairly runny batter—about 1/2 cup
Mix dry ingredients well. Beat liquid ingredients together, add to dry ones, and stir to form batter. If it`s not runny enough, add more buttermilk. Fry as usual for pancakes.
