I was really missing my Saturday or Sunday morning pancake feasts.  I thought it was ridiculous to mourn.  I just needed to get crackin’ and start the hunt.  I knew with all the resources out there: the web, old fashioned cookbooks, friends, family etc, I should be able to find a recipe that was not only gluten free but had just a little something extra.

About Jenny


  1. Why the almond or other non dairy milk when you use cream cheese and butter in the recipe? Is this a texture preference?

    • Thanks for the question Tracy!! I loved this recipe pre gluten free so I wanted to stick to the original ingredients as much as possible. The milk is for moisture and the vegan cream cheese and butter would be for texture. If I omitted any ingredient, it would be the butter, but again I love the texture and flavor of this recipe. Hope this answers your question.
