Good Recipes come from tried and proven cookbooks. They are always helpful for those who need to fix something for a special occasion. They guarantee that as long as you follow the instructions and buy the right amount of ingredients, you’ll be able to impress your friends or guests with your cooking prowess.
Some think that having the right kitchen utensils and a beautiful modern kitchen with all the kitchen appliances will make or break your food and cooking. Well, let’s stick to the basics. Not everyone has the latest kitchen appliances and island chopping blocks and latest kitchen utensils and pots and pans. Sure, they make everything easier and sometimes faster, but hey, the most important thing is to have good recipes or cookbooks to create tasty foods that all your guests will enjoy.
If you don’t have cookbooks yet, then get a few. There are recipe cookbooks for just about every situation and every kind of taste. Try them out. Adjust them to your liking when you get good at making the basic recipes. Put yourself into them after you’ve mastered the basic recipes.
Some say the way you cook is generally the way you have lived your life. If you’re always in a hurry, then you’ll also be in a hurry when it comes to cooking. Your impatience will show up in the quality of the foods you cook. Cookbooks and good recipes will force you to step back and do everything in a step-by-step way and thus force you to be patient. If you are careless, then it, too, will show up in your cooking.
A good meal looks beautiful, permeates the air with wonderfulness, is served well on clean home-style dishware and utensils, and besides having the right texture, being easy to chew and swallow, also tastes good and is healthy for you. Good basic recipes easily accessible make this possible. It’s the true supportive essence of having cookbooks and recipes at your fingertips.
Try these Gluten-Free Pancakes
Pancakes are a classic favorite but can be more of a challenge if you are trying to avoid gluten and be dairy free.
Before you get started with the below recipes, you’ll need a few supplies. For cooking the pancakes. You’ll need a skillet pan, a whisk, and a ladle. We also recommend having maple syrup, fresh fruit, and nuts on hand to put on your finished pancakes to make them extra tasty!
Recipe #1: Rice Gluten Free Pancake Recipe
This Gluten-free pancake recipe uses rice flour as a base. Rice flour is high in fiber and low in saturated fat, cholesterol, and sodium. It makes a great gluten free flour substitute; however, rice flour is a harder grain than wheat and does not absorb liquid well. Because of that, don’t use rice flour as a 1:1 substitute for regular flour. Follow our recipe to have perfect pancakes made with rice flour.
To make these pancakes, you will need 1 cup of rice flour, 1 egg, ½ cup of vegan or soy milk, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, and 2 tablespoons of sugar. Mix all the ingredients together until a batter forms. Let it rest for ten minutes, and then pour the batter onto a greased skillet over medium-low heat. Cook, flip, and enjoy all these recipes with the toppings of your choice!
Here’s another good pancake recipe:
Recipe #2: Oat and Banana Gluten-Free Pancake
In this GF pancake recipe, you’ll use oat flour and a mushy ripe banana as your pancake base. Oat flour is packed full of calcium, magnesium, iron, thiamine, phosphorus, and zinc. Oat flour is naturally gluten free. However, cross-contamination can occur if oats are processed in a factory that also produces foods with wheat and gluten. Just double-check that your oat flour packaging says that it is gluten free. Let’s get started.
Along with 1 mushy banana and 1 cup of oat flour, you’ll also need to combine an egg, 1 cup of vegan milk, and 1 teaspoon of baking powder. After letting the batter sit for 10 minutes, you’ll be ready to spoon it out onto your skillet over medium-low heat, cook, flip, and eat! Finish your pancake by topping it with some maple syrup, strawberries or blueberries, and crunched-up pecans, walnuts or almonds. Any kind of nut will do.
