Carrot Cake Pancakes. Hot summer evenings call for simple suppers. These pancakes are fun to eat and are light enough to be easy-on-the-stomach yearround.


2 cups pancake mix (we like Allie’s Awesome Gluten-Free Mix)

2 eggs

1 cup milk or milk substitute

2 Tbs. vegetable oil

½ cup shredded carrots

½ cup unsweetened crushed pineapple, drained

¼ cup chopped walnuts

¼ tsp. ground ginger


Heat griddle to medium heat. Place the mix in a bowl. Add the eggs, milk and oil and mix until thoroughly blended. Gently fold in the carrots, pineapple, walnuts and ginger.

Coat the griddle with non-stick cooking spray. Ladle the batter onto the griddle. Cook until bubbles form and then flip the pancakes to cook on the other side. Remove from heat when they are golden brown on both sides. Sprinkle lightly with powder sugar before serving.
