Cinnamon Toast Pancakes


My boys helped me prepare the garden for the second round of planting. When I returned from my trip, I was happy to see that my plants and seedlings had mostly survived the frost.  The garden is now ready for the main season plantings of tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, peppers and the rest.

I made cinnamon toast pancakes as a treat to reward us for our work in the dirt.  This recipe comes from Daphne Oz.  I made a very slight modification to at a sprinkling on cinnamon sugar to the pancakes while they cook.

These pancakes use separated eggs, with the whites beaten stiff and then folded in.  This made them very fluffy…quite nice.

    Have you ever tried gluten free flour? I am wondering if it would ruin this recipe.
