recipe: german puff pancake with fresh berries

little one seems to have lost an interest in pancakes lately so when i saw this recipe for lemon puff pancakes, i was intrigued so i tried it. since my little one is allergic to wheat and eggs, i used gluten free flour for both but for eggs i made one version with eggs and the other version with flaxmeal.

m enjoyed the egg version. i am not a fan of the strong egg flavor so next time i may try it with just egg whites. i did enjoy the lightness of these pancakes.

little one liked the flaxmeal version. she wasn’t a fan of the sugar and lime flavor so she ate the plain ones with a dab of maple syrup. it was fun to try a different version pancake!
