Gluten-Free ‘Pannenkoeken Mix’ Arrives at The Wooden Shoe in Victoria

gluten free pannenkoeken victoria copyA pannenkoek or Dutch pancake is a style of pancake that can be up to a foot in diameter, much thinner than their North American counterparts but not as thin as crêpes. 1

Plain ones are often eaten with treacle (syrup made of sugar beets), appelstroop (an unspiced Dutch variety of apple butter) or (powdered) sugar and are sometimes rolled up to be eaten by hand or with cutlery. They may incorporate slices of bacon, apples, cheese, or raisins.

Basic ingredients are flour (plain, self-rising or both), milk, salt, and eggs. The addition of buckwheat flour (up to 50 percent) is traditional, but much less common nowadays. Milk can be replaced with soy milk without changing the end result.

The gluten-free version of the mix is now available at The Wooden Shoe in Victoria for just $8.95 per package!

gluten-free stroopwafel victoria 3Also available at the Wooden Shoe! Gluten-free stroopwafels! Made from two thin layers of baked dough with a caramel syrup filling in the middle, a certified gluten-free version is now available in Victoria!

“The stiff dough for the waffles is made from flour, butter, brown sugar, yeast, milk, and eggs. Medium-sized balls of dough are put into a heated waffle iron and pressed into the required uniformly thin, round shape. After the waffle has been baked, and while it is still warm, it is split into thin layered halves. The warm filling, made from syrup, brown sugar, butter, and cinnamon, is spread between the waffle halves, gluing them together. Placed over a hot drink such as coffee or tea, it serve to warm the cookie up and soften the syrup.” 2
