As with singers and the hymn Amazing Grace, hundreds of food bloggers have covered the grain free pancake—giving it their own spin. Here I follow suit.
Achieving Golden Pancake Perfection
In this rendition of Grain Free Coconut Flour Pancakes I have added a touch of cane sugar. Pure maple syrup works great, too. However, I don’t use honey in this recipe and here’s why.
Over the years I have observed that depending on the amount of egg in a pancake recipe, pancakes can benefit from the addition of specific sweeteners to the batter.
If you have a pancake recipe that just doesn’t achieve golden perfection, add a tablespoon or two of honey. If you have a recipe that browns too much, use cane sugar or maple syrup. In my experimentation, I have found that sugar and maple syrup just don’t caramelize as much as honey—and caramelization is what gives a pancake the golden kiss. Pancakes heavier on the egg, as in this recipe, achieve their golden hue in-part from the eggs.
