Gluten Free Baked Apple Pancake


I cooked this Gluten Free Baked Apple Pancake for Shrove Tuesday which is traditionally the day before Lent. It’s the day you eat all the goodies before fasting for 40 days. However, I wasn’t intending on fasting for 40 days, just looking for an alternative for breakfast or dessert to fill up my hungry teens!

Autumn Apples

I had some really lovely first season Autumn apples that were just asking to be in this recipe. The varieties of apples available these days is almost ridiculous. When I was growing up, there was Granny Smith, Jonothan and Delicious. These days there’s a plethora of apple varieties. Gala, Jazz, Bravo, Kalei, Envy, Modi, Eve, Kanzi, Greenstar, Pink Lady, Fuji, Braeburn, Jonogold, Sundowner and Golden Delicious and that’s just in Australia. Apples are packed with nutrition and have high levels of Vitamin C, making them the perfect power punch to help ward off colds and flu. If you have a salicylate sensitivity then stick with golden or red delicious apple or swap it for a Nashi pear or a ripe Williams pear.

Pancake or Custard

This pancake is slightly unusual in that it is quite custardy. The tapioca flour and the egg/milk combination gives it a soft custard type texture. It works well as a breakfast dish and equally as great as a dessert served warm with cream or yogurt.

Gluten Free

The flours used in this are gluten free but you could easily swap them with a wheat flour. The texture will change from a custardy one to slightly cakier.  If you don’t have tapioca flour you can use arrowroot instead. I also think you could make this with Buckwheat flour and or almond flour. This recipe is from Lee Holmes at Supercharged Food. I’ve altered a few ingredients.
