No. They are not gluten free. Yes. It is against the Paleo-Eat-Clean theory.
It matters not to me. I ground the wheat myself, then poured in the grade A, whole buttermilk to make the lightest, fluffiest pancakes yesterday. Yes I did.
And I ate one. And yes, yes it was delicious. In fact it was so tasty that I had one for breakfast today. Those pancakes made my face and my tummy smile, yes indeed, as did the pure maple syrup.
Betty Crocker’s recipe is the one I basically followed, using coconut oil in place of the vegetable oil and I added in one extra egg.
Um, um, Good!
Unfortunately I forgot to take photos of our magical Saturday breakfast brunch at Shashy’s Bakery and Fine Food yesterday. It does not take away the fact that it was the most wonderful, delectable breakfast ever, so much so that we unanimously decided, right then and there, Shashy’s is now our first choice for breakfast outings.
We ordered the Eggs Benedict with grits, Two Eggs Any Style with whole wheat toast, sausage, and home fries and finally an order of Blueberry Pancakes with ham. It was a smorgasbord! Everything cooked to perfection in a beautiful presentation. And they serve REAL butter!
Another wonderful aspect of our dining experience was the great service. Our waitress was delightful and personable. It seemed like everyone working there was happy to be there. That was really nice to see, proficient, happy people enjoying their jobs.
Shashy’s is a fine food experience indeed, serving Breakfast until 2 p.m. on Saturdays.
