GLUTEN-FREE Cinnamon Pancakes

Natural Homemade Living
I wanted to adapt this recipe for those of you restricted to a gluten-free diet. I made these for my granddaughter on Sunday morning and they were awesome! I wanted to make the cinnamon roll pancakes but one of our granddaughters has Celiac Disease so I didn't want to make anything that she couldn't eat. So I experimented and revised my own pancake recipe from the original post. So you will need to substitute the all purpose flour with white rice flour. The texture is great and they taste just like the non gluten-free pancakes! This made 8 gluten-free pancakes.
Prepare the cinnamon filling:
1/2 cup butter melted
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 T cinnamon
Mix together until smooth and pour into a baggie. It'll get thicker, just let it sit until you're ready for it.
Make the glaze:
4 T butter
2 ounces cream cheese (I used the reduced fat)
1 1/4 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
Heat the butter and cream cheese until melted (I used the microwave for 20 seconds). Whisk until smooth and add the powdered sugar and vanilla. Let this sit until the end.
 * Preheat your oven to 200F to keep the pancakes warm until they are all done.
Now make your pancakes
1 egg (slightly beaten)
2 T plain yogurt or 2 T softened butter
3 T white or organic sugar
Mix these together then add:
1 1/2 cup white rice flour (gluten-free)
2 tsp baking powder
Then add:
1 1/4 cup milk
Mix everything (I use a wooden spoon) together and leave the batter just a little lumpy.
I use an electric griddle about 300F-325F degrees. Preheat your griddle. I used 1/3 cup of pancake batter for each pancake. Then cut a bottom corner off your baggie with the cinnamon filling. As soon as your pancake batter is on the griddle, swirl your cinnamon filling around your pancake. Once you have bubbles over your pancakes, it's time to flip them. Now this is a little messy once you flip them because the filling may run out onto your griddle, don't panic, it'll be ok. Cook the pancakes about another two minutes on the other side with the filling. I put them a on a parchment covered cookie sheet and put them in the oven to keep them warm. Here is the recipe for the Cinnamon Pancakes, (not Gluten Free.
Enjoy your gluten-free cinnamon roll pancakes!
