    Pancakes and intolerances

    So, we nearly always do pancakes with the Scouts around Shrove Tuesday - they enjoy cooking and eating.

    This year I am trying to work out how to cope with gluten free, egg free, dairy free and citrus free. At least I don't need to worry about the nut allergy unless they ask for nutella spread!

    Any experiences of similar challenges?

    We can use GF flour and add an extra egg for one batch. We are thinking of vegan banana pancakes with soya milk and making all the pancakes smaller "stacking" or American type.

    Morrisons is selling a 'free from' pancake mix. Might be suitable.

    You can make vegan pancakes with just flour and soya milk

    If you need gluten free and egg free for the same person, there are some recipes online that use condensed milk in place of the milk and egg, which do work and produce a nice if very heavy pancake. Gluten, egg *and* dairy free is going to be very difficult as you need something to bind it.

    Citrus free, well, er, don't put lemon juice on

    We've had kids with special dietary needs in the past and in most cases the parents are quite happy if you ask them to provide suitable ingredients/mixtures for their child which they can bring to scouts. Helps reduce the chance of them eating something they shouldn't.
