I do still check LJ to read other people's posts and comment though, I'm just less inclined to post myself. Sorry if that bums you out D:

But I do have a recipe to share with you guys!
Unfortunately my love for German Pancakes doesn’t play nice with my paleo-inspired diet, so I had to surf around the internet to find a reasonable alternative. I found this recipe online but had to modify it quite a bit through trial and error. There could still be a few modifications and it’s not a complete replacement for the real thing, but it’s pretty close and satisfies the same craving.
Makes one, but this split between two people and served with a side of scrambled eggs is perfect. These things are HUGE
7 oz coconut milk (1/2 can)
2 Tablespoons coconut flour
1/8 tsp table salt (original recipe called for 1/2 tsp, this is WAY TOO SALTY for me)
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon (original recipe called for 1/2 tsp, I don’t like a lot of cinnamon though, add to taste!)
Optional: 1 tsp honey. Original recipe doesn’t call for it but non-paleo boyfriend thought it needed a sweet element so I added a little. This satisfies me but he’s going to put powdered sugar on his next time. Not for me thanks!
2 Tablespoons of coconut oil or unsalted butter (this is for the pan, so whatever your preferred cooking oil is)
1. Preheat 10” cast iron skillet to 450 degrees in oven
2. After 10 minutes, remove from oven and coat with coconut oil or butter
3. Reduce heat to 425 degrees
4. Blend or mix all of the other ingredients together, then pour into the skillet
5. Cook for 20 minutes or until slightly brown. It will puff up in the oven and sink back down. Delicious!
I always eat my Dutch Babies/German Pancakes with a coating of butter and some squeezes of lemon juice. My favorite!
