Gluten Free Shortcake Pancakes with Strawberries
I had a fleeting what if moment the other day. I thought to myself.. I LOVE Strawberry Shortcake. REALLY love it. So What if I made Pancakes that were more like Biscuits than Pancakes.
So .. a few hours later I quickly threw together some bisquick biscuits since I had a box- and instead of baking them- I threw them on a griddle and made Biscuit Pancakes.
They were fun! Heavy of course- they will fill you right up.
Cover the Pancakes in Strawberries. I warmed my strawberries up with a little Raw Agave Nectar and crushed them just slightly.
If you have a hankering for whipped cream and cant do the dairy or soy variation - trying skimming the top the cream from a can of heavy coconut milk.
This same concept could work for just about any biscuit recipe- the only difference here was that I added a little sugar to sweeten mine up. We aren't big on eating white refined things.. So in the future I plan to play with another biscuit recipe. BUT.. for a healthier option now check out the Sweet Coconut Biscuits from the Daily Dietribe (which are -Gluten Free, Vegan Sugar Free) I predict these could be make into Shortcake Pancakes too!
2 Cups Bisquick
1/3 Cup Shortening
2/3 Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk (Or other Milk Alternative)
1/3 Cup Sugar (I used xylitol)
- In a bowl Cut shortening into pea sized pieces into the Bisquick. Add the Sugar, Milk and Eggs and mix well. Batter will be very thick.
- Pour "pancakes" onto hot, oiled griddle- Flip once and serve hot!
