Gluten Free Garlic Spinach Pancakes With Cauliflower Cream Sauce

Spinach pancakes are met with cauliflower creaminess.
Gluten free pancakes are a wonderful closing to June. It has been a stormy, rainy, very hot Dayton vacation thus far. The only cure is to stay indoors drinking ice cold tea and writing/drawing in front of the A/C.
Fall registration has also arrived. I have to make sure that each class is worthy and won't cause easy distraction. I become sidetracked and procrastinate a lot more than necessary. For two years of MFA, I have to be more focused and organized. Quite thankful that the graduate office included course descriptions and websites to critic faculty's work.
Now back to pancakes.
I do enjoy Maple Groves Pancake/Waffle Mix. It's definitely something to keep on hand and makes cooking pancakes a much more simpler exercise. Spinach and garlic are the key ingredients to a savory breakfast (lunch or dinner) and though the mix has a bit of sweetness, it's not overwhelming to overall flavor. My maddening desire for cauliflower cream returns and covers crisp, browned perfection in a manner that is almost sinful. Not the chocolate kind of sinful. Almost. But not quite.
Makes about 5-6 cakes and must be shared.

Beautiful interior.
