Easy Family Recipes: Gluten-Free Orange Pancakes with Blueberry Sauce

Gluten-Free Blueberry Orange PancakesIf your kids have any time off for spring break this week, you’ll definitely want to give these super yummy pancakes a go. You’ll amp up the flavor by using wild blueberries and orange, a terrific flavor combo made all the more awesome with the easiest fruit-based sauce you can imagine. If gluten-free isn’t your style, feel free to subsitute all purpose flour instead. Your batter may be a tad thicker, but not to worry. It will just be a wee bit easier to pour.


Gluten-Free Orange Pancakes with Wild Blueberry-Orange Sauce

Yield: 12 to 15 thin pancakes, depending on size

Wild Blueberry-Orange Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup frozen Wild Blueberries
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar (or honey)

Orange Pancakes

  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons gluten-free flour
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar (or honey)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon orange zest
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter

First make sauce: In small sauce pan, combine all ingredients and place on low heat while preparing pancakes. Stir occasionally. Smash wild blueberries to desired consistency.

To make pancakes, combine all dry ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. Add wet ingredients to dry, then whisk together until well combined (batter will be thin). Preheat griddle or electric skillet to medium. Make sure pan is hot before scooping batter. Pour a small amount of batter (definitely no more than a scant 1/4 cup per pancake) onto the griddle. The batter is thin, so not much is needed for each pancake. Wait until pancake bubbles before flipping. Flip and cook other side. Continue process until all batter is used. Pour sauce over pancakes while warm.

Note: Only one orange is needed for fresh juice and zest for both pancakes and sauce.
