Apricot-Orange Pancakes!

Happy Tuesday, Friends!

Last week I posted a picture of my favorite finds from our San Diego, Little Italy Farmer's Maket. If you do not remember this picture, here were our favorite finds:

   

 

 

If you haven't been to this particular San Diego Market, you are truly missing out! It's basically the Mecca of all local farmer's markets. Crowds begin shopping at 8 am, and by noon it becomes its own city! Vendors line the streets all the way down West Cedar as people poor in with an eagerness to Shop till they drop! Which is greatly appreciated here at THE GOOD SCONE ;)

But any who, as my lovely husband was managing our booth last Saturday, I slowly drifted away to "use the bathroom." Although I did have to use the bathroom, in all honesty, my ADHD kicked in (I'm about 90% sure I really have this) and I needed a change of scenery.... This little trip turned in to a 30 minute adventure...whoops!

So what did I find on my little journey, besides some delicious Polish Dumplings and killer Vegan Tamales??? Well, I found the following: A cinnamon spice pack from Ground 2 Table, a juicy orange from a local farm stand, Apricot Jam from Jackie's Jam, and my favorite coconut milk from Mokoko. All of these items were compulsive, yet thoroughly enjoyed purchases. 

When I got home later that afternoon, I decided to use these ingredients to create a deliciously GF and Vegan recipe I could share using our GOOD SCONE All-Purpose Flour. Thus, I asked our Facebook and Instagram friends to post recipe ideas on what we should make. The ideas came in and I was most intrigued by one of our friend's suggestion to make pancakes! PANCAKES!?!?..... the very thought got me instantly PUMPED! 

 After a few test batches, I am excited to say we have finally mastered this Pancake Recipe to share with you all - So without further ado, 

HERE SHE IS - in all of her Glory :)
