day#23: a different kind of stuffing

okay, i couldn't get enough of those stuffed pancakes. i wanted to make something gluten free, so i gave it a shot by applying GF ingredients to the brainless banana pancakes from how it all vegan. to sub for that recipe, i used bob's red mill GF AP flour. i doubled the batch and added 2 extra bananas, cut back the milk by 1/4 cup, and added some cinnamon to reduce the beany flavor of the flour. that's my main critique of Bob's--too damned beany.
anyway, i stuffed them with a kitchen sink compote--also gluten free. i'll call the mixture "oh the irony", and dedicate it to dr. apricot from the ppk. the irony? there aren't any apricots in the compote. i'm sure she'll find that funny.

"oh the irony" kitchen sink compote-(also makes a great pie/tart filling)

  • 2 apples chopped
  • 1 cup of black berries, frozen
  • juice of 1 pomegranate
  • 1/3 c vegan powdered sugar
  • 1 chopped pear
  • 2 T instant tapioca
  • 1/2 t cinnamon
  • 1/4 t cardamon
  • 3/4 t ginger
  • 1/3 cup apple juice
  • 1 orange, peeled and torn apart
  • 1 clementine, peeled and torn apart

oven: three fiddy. wash fruit, peel the apples/pear. add other fruits, juice, and mix in sugar/spices/tapioca. mix this well! cover with foil and let it do its thing for about 30 minutes. it'll get nice and bubbly. let it completely cool before sticking it in the fridge. makes really rad stuffing for pancakes. NOTE: you can really use any fruit blend, i think. i've never tried tropical fruits, just play around with it and see what happens. i'm lucky this combo worked. it's not my fault if some wacky combo doesn't work for you.
