Valentine’s Day Brunch

Brunch is a favorite among my friends and I up at school. Instead of walking down to the Cafeteria yesterday morning I decided to make apple sauce pancakes for everyone.

For Christmas I received a King Arthur’s gift card, and recently purchase some of their GF products (along with a donut pan!). This was the first time I tried anything from King Arthur, so I didn’t know how the pancakes would turn out.

King Arthur GF mixes are made in a dedicated facility and are free of the 8 most common allergies. In addition to the mix the recipe called for butter or oil, 2 eggs and 2 c. of milk. I chose to use oil and substituted the milk with water.

Since I was making apple sauce pancakes I added 1/3 cup of my mom’s homemade apple sauce (natural store bought apple sauce works well too), 1 tsp vanilla and 1 tsp. cinnamon.

I was a little concern after opening the mix, because it had a strong smell that I wasn’t a fan of. I didn’t know how they would turn out. However, these pancakes were really good. This pancakes were, fluffy and had a great texture and flavor. My friends ( all gluten eaters) have had many of my GF pancake mixes, and these were their favorite!

In addition to making 4 large hearts, I was able to make 12 small pancakes ( the box states it yields 16 4 inch pancakes). I froze the leftovers so that I can enjoy them without having to make a whole batch of pancakes.

I hope everyone has a great Valentine’s Day. As my friends and I say, Cheers to Love!
