Carefully woven into my vivid Native American and British genetic tapestry, there is a durable thread of Scandinavian heritage. Perhaps that explains my love of lingonsylt – lingonberry jam. These Gluten-Free Pancakes make an ideal partner for tart-sweet lingonberry jam, made with only fruit and a bit of sugar – so that the bold flavor of the berries wakes the taste buds in a way few other flavors are able to do (at least for me).
And don’t those berries look so lovely peeking out from the stack like that?
Of course, you can serve these with the traditional topping – warmed maple syrup, if you prefer. Regardless, you’ll love these light fluffy griddle cakes for breakfast, or for a light dinner.

- To keep pancakes warm as you cook the entire batch: Preheat your oven to 275 degrees. Prepare a rectangular cookie sheet by covering with foil. As you cook pancakes, place them on the foil-lined pan, gently fold the foil over to cover the pancakes, and place in the preheated oven until you’ve cooked all the batter.
