Gluten Free Danish

Gluten Free Danish

Melissa R. 1

"My husband says these are the closest thing to 'real' Danish he has had since going gluten-free five years ago. We like raspberry jam, but you could also try pie filling in the middles."

  1. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine the pancake mix, butter, and sugar; mix until crumbly. Stir in 2/3 cup milk and 1/2 teaspoon almond extract and mix until fully incorporated. The dough will be sticky.
  3. Drop the dough by rounded tablespoons onto the baking sheet, spacing the dough about 2 inches apart. With the back of a teaspoon, make a shallow indentation in the center of each dough ball. Fill the centers with a teaspoon of jam.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, 10 to 12 minutes. Allow the pastries to cool.
  5. Combine the confectioners' sugar, 3 tablespoons of milk, vanilla extract, and 1/4 teaspoon almond extract and mix until smooth. Drizzle the glaze over the Danish.

These are sooooo good that I can't stop eating them and I made them for my husband!!! Thanks so much for such a wonderful treat.

I made these on request for my Aunt and they were quite a hit. Unexpectedly good for a gluten eater too. :)

These were good! I used a combination of 75% Bob's Red Mill and 25% Namaste. The chalky texture may be due to the brand of mix used. I prefer Maple Grove Farms, but didn't have it on hand. I spr...

Judith is right - these are too chalky (I called it floury) time I'm going to try 1/2 cup less flour and maybe an egg - maybe that will work...I used the cream cheese filling on this site...

It does not taste like the flaky buttery danish pastries I am used to. However, it is probably the best thing I am going to get while dealing with gluten sensitivity. It tasted a lot like panc...
