First Stampede Breakfast of 2011

First Stampede Breakfast of 2011 the food

After way to long again a post and I will try to post more often 🙂

Even though Stampede in Calgary this year starts on July 8th 2011, yesterday was the day that I got my first Stampede Breakfast of 2011.

As you may not know but Calgary has one big party for like a 10 days every year. This year Stampede starts at July 8th with the parade (even Prins William and his new wife will be here) and then the on the Stampede grounds all kind of things for instance animal action like rodeo, food, concerts, rides and much much more.  It is HUGE and people for all over the world will be having loads of fun.

And besides all the activities at the Stampede grounds there are lots of things happening in town to.

Free pancake breakfast is one of those things. And yesterday I went to my first one.

This one was held by Amaranth Whole Foods Market and that meant gluten free pancakes, organic juice and turkey sausage.

The buckwheat pancakes ware great. Different then the usual kind of pancakes but very good.

Let me give your the Recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups of buckwheat flour (they used light buckwheat flour)
  • 1/2 cup all purpose gluten free flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 cups rice milk (they used Natura)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup oil

Directions:

  • Mix dry ingredients together
  • Mix wet ingredients together
  • Pour the wet mixture over the dry mixture and blend well however leave some clumps (this ensures a fluffier pancake)

This recipe make 20 pancakes using approx. 1/4 cup of batter per pancake

So now you can go try to make those great pancakes.

As you can see on my picture the food looked great and tasted great to, I almost took a picture of the empty plate but didn’t think there was much interest in that.

Besides the long line for the food there was music and tickets that would give you a changes to win prices.

All in all a fun time on a dry Saturday morning.

If or are in Calgary always keep you eyes open for a Stampede breakfast because it’s fun and mostly free food.

And of course don’t forget to dress up like a real cowboy!
