Gluten and Dairy Free Blueberry Cinnamon Pancakes

Hello everyone

I’ve had a great week so far.  I moaned a lot about my eye injury I had a few weeks ago and I’m happy to report I now have an artificial lens which has helped a lot.  I’ve also been down in London for a few days and we had an amazing tour of the Globe Theatre.  My favourite story I learned was about the first theatre that was built in London in the 1500s.  In those days the perimeter of London city stopped at the river bank so when theatres were outlawed they moved to the other side of the Thames.  The Burbages that built the first theatre owned the theatre but not the land it was built on.  Not wanting to loose their precious theatre when they were banned, they waited til the landlord was on Christmas holiday, dismantled the wooden theatre piece by piece and transported it across the Thames, which was frozen solid during the great freeze and rebuilt it there.

The summer theatre program starts on 23rd of April (Shakespeare’s birthday) and closes at the end of September as it is an outdoor theatre.  We are hoping to go and see a show this summer – fingers crossed it isn’t raining.

Back to more food related chat now.  As it is pancake day next Tuesday I thought I would share a new gluten and dairy free pancake recipe with you all.  You can leave out the cinnamon if you are not a fan and can substitute the blueberries for any other berry you prefer.

I’ll share my favourite gluten and dairy free pancake recipes with you next Tuesday to celebrate pancake day.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Gingerbread Pancakes

Hello

My regular followers will know how much I love my pancakes for breakfast – they are the ultimate treat for me.  The other morning I decided to try and make some gingerbread flavoured pancakes.  I used my basic pancake recipe but sweetened them with treacle, ginger and cinnamon to get that gingerbread taste.

Obviously the best thing about these pancakes is eating them but a close follow up is the amazing smell while they are cooking.  The smell of the warm spices is definitely a great way to start the day.

Enjoy!
