Ingredients: organic makes it best
3/4 c. homestyle creamery buttermilk
1 T. grapeseed oil + extra for pan
1 T. honey
1/2 c. tapioca flour
1/4 c. finely ground cornmeal
1 tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. salt
1. Homestyle creamery buttermilk is important! The buttermilk you make from scratch with lemon juice or vinegar isn’t thick enough and the pancakes don’t turn out. Look for the thickest buttermilk you can find – the stuff that’s almost as thick as yogurt. However, substituting yogurt is also not recommended. It just doesn’t turn out.
2. Measure out the oil before the honey and the dregs of oil left over will make honey will slip right out!
3. Each pancake is cooked individually. The swirling technique is important for even cooking. These don’t turn out well on a large pan or griddle.
4. Make the Sweet Cream first. Then get the berry topping going before beginning the pancakes so they are ready at the same time.
1. In a 2 cup measuring cup whisk wet ingredients. Mix together dry ingredients in a bowl. Whisk wet ingredients into dry ingredients.
2. Heat a small pan. Add a little grapeseed oil.
3. When pan is hot, drop batter (1/4 c. filled 3/4rd of the way full) into the skillet and swirl around the pan to get a thin even layer.
4. Cook until lightly golden brown (1-3 minutes per side). Pancake is ready to flip when it lifts easily from pan. (If it sticks, either you didn’t use enough oil to coat or it isn’t ready to flip yet!)
Place on warmed plate or in warming drawer while cooking the rest.
Repeat step 2-4 until all batter is cooked.
Yields 8-9 pancakes.
5. Top with topping (directions below).
1 bag frozen organic berries of choice
1 tsp. tapioca flour
1 T. lemon juice
maple syrup (honey or sugar) to taste
1. Bring berries to a boil in a small saucepan.
2. Reduce heat to low. Mix lemon juice and tapioca flour together. Stir into berries. Add sweetener.
Berries will thicken as they cool.
4 T. organic icing sugar
2 T. organic lemon juice
zest of 1 organic lemon
1- 8oz tub mascarpone cheese
1. Stir the icing sugar into the lemon juice until sugar is dissolved.
2. Stir in the mascarpone cheese and lemon zest.
3. Refrigerate until use.
To make the sweet cream sauce spread a little further, add a few Tablespoons of heavy cream. It will make it thinner, but does not affect the flavor.
