Gluten Free Pancakes with Supreme Strawberry Topping

2013 – Gluten Free Living

Gluten Free Pancakes with Supreme Strawberry Topping are absolutely awesome. My niece, Heather, sent me a delicious strawberry glaze for pancakes a couple of years ago and I finally got around to trying it. The original recipe is simple–only 3 ingredients and I even substituted honey for the sugar in the recipe and it still turned out wonderfully.

I whipped up another batch of gluten free pancakes yesterday and decided I wanted to try out this topping. I had to scrounge around in all my refrigerators before finding my last few strawberries. I had just enough to make a single batch of this recipe.

Had I had a good stock of strawberries on hand like I usually do, I probably would have made several batches of this exquisite strawberry topping. I also would have ladled it on to each pancake before topping with another pancake on top for more of the delicious strawberry flavor. As it was I served these pancakes with both maple syrup and the strawberry topping. (Yes, I know that sounds a little gluttonous).

I would do only two things differently next time I make this (in addition to making a LOT more of the sauce. If I’d had enough strawberries I would have added some sliced strawberries to the batter. Even though I added additional milk this time to the recipe, I think the recipe is better with some kind of  fruit in the batter.

This recipe turned out so tasty. It’s a delicious recipe for a holiday breakfast (like Valentine’s Day) or a special occasion brunch, birthday, or even having breakfast for dinner! Consider making Gluten Free Pancakes with Supreme Strawberry Topping the next time you want to make a special breakfast for your family. Your kids will love the sweet strawberry topping. And your spouse will appreciate the simple pleasure of a wonderful comfort meal for breakfast. Enjoy!

When I initially posted this recipe in February 2013, it was at the beginning stages of my venture into making gluten free foods. I was also still using an iPhone for a camera so my pictures never did justice to the delicious recipes I was making.

I’ve been systematically going through all of my older recipes and remaking them so I can retake pictures that are a little more satisfying to me and to you! I recently remade this recipe (June 2015) since I had a lot of strawberries on hand, and the outcome was even better than before. This time I included strawberry extract in the pancake batter (along with strawberries) which really increased flavor.

Whether you serve Gluten Free Pancakes with Supreme Strawberry Topping for a special occasion, birthday, anniversary, holiday or just a large country breakfast on Saturdays, this is one recipe you will love. If you don’t have gluten intolerance you can always use regular flour in the recipe, too.

I used these ingredients to make the Supreme Strawberry Topping.

Slice about a third of the strawberries in half. Add strawberries to a saucepan with a teaspoon of vanilla and 1/2 cup honey. If you don’t have problems with sugar, the recipe originally calls for 1/3 cup sugar.  Saute strawberries over low to medium heat for 5-10 minutes until sauce thickens slightly.

Mix cornstarch with water.  Add cornstarch mixture to strawberries to thicken the sauce.

Allow topping to cook a few more minutes to thicken. If desired, you can puree part of the sauce with an immersion blender, but  I didn’t do that.

Pour Supreme Strawberry Topping into a gravy boat to use to serve over pancakes.
