Gluten-Free Pancakes

pancake stack 
Gluten-Free pancakes have not impressed me a great deal.  The first pancake recipe I posted was okay, but far from great.  The buckwheat pancakes were really good, but not quite a traditional pancake. This recipe is the closest I’ve gotten to what I remember pancakes being, but honestly, I hardly remember.  Even my family seldom eats wheat based pancakes.  My brother didn’t make any when we gathered at Thanksgiving, which means it’s probably been over a year sincemy family had any.   That means they are not the best ones to ask for a comparison, so I’ll have to ask you.  If you give this recipe a try, let me know what you think.  They sure do look delicious, don’t they?

Gluten-Free Pancakes

In a medium to large bowl, combine the dry ingredients with a whisk.  Add the eggs, oil, and milk.  Let it sit for a minute and thicken while you heat a skillet or griddle.  Put about 1/4 batter onto the hot skillet for each pancake.  Because the batter is thick, you won’t see them bubble on top like you might be used to.  Let them cook a minute or 2, checking the bottom to be sure they don’t burn.  Turn them over and cook about a minute more.

Add your favorite toppings and enjoy!  Makes about 20 pancakes 3 1/2 inches in diameter.

These do look super-fluffy! That's something hard to obtain when making gluten-free pancakes. As I'm not really a pancake fan, I tend to really enjoy pancakes that are not like "normal" ones - so buckwheat pancakes work well. I'd love a nutty pancake - back when I was a kid, I remember loving the Pecan Waffles at Waffle House. I wonder if I could figure out a GF Pecan Pancake. Hmmm...
I don't have any recipes for making them from scratch yet. But I do have a wonderful suggestion for a great gluten free pancake mix already prepared. You just add is an egg, water and oil. It's Pamela's wheat free/gluten free baking and pancake mix. Oh they are so good! I've made them plain just like the package says and they remind me of a whole grain pancake would taste. I've also added chocolate chips, vanilla extract, almond extract, fruit, etc. And they are super yummy! If you can't find it near you, her products are online too. Pretty much all the Pamela's products are super yummy!
I converted my recipe for pancakes (from an old, old cookbook) to gluten-free. It looks very similar to this, i think it calls for a pinch of baking soda, too. I love them, but my hubby isn't that big on pancakes, so i don't make them often.
Love pancakes at our house...printing this off right now with your new printing feature! Thanks Linda!
These were yummy! They were more substantial (and healthier!) than the ones that I normally make from corn starch. I was out of potato starch, so I used tapioca starch and they turned out great.
Thanks Michelle. :-)
My husband and son are gluten free- not me. I eat regular pancakes often since they are my favorite food- so I can give a fresh comparison...

This recipe was the best I have found yet and it is so good that I am ending my search and making this my family's new main staple pancake recipe.

I must note, however, that I changed out the sour milk for almond milk to make these gluten and casein free. I also substituted the eggs with milled flaxseed. Super healthy and super yummy.
Jessalyn ~ I appreciate your input, and I'm so glad you like them. I'm also glad to know the substitutes work well. That information will be helpful to others.
We used to eat pancakes pretty much at least once a week and I have been on the search for a "go to" pancake recipe and I am done searching! I just made these and they are amazing. I did add a tsp or so of pure vanilla and a dash of cinnamon. I may try the other suggestion to make them cf too. Your recipes are awesome. (just made the pizza last night and this is after trying 8 different recipes. This by far my favorite!) Thanks for sharing! Kellyc
oops, also adding that we tried the revised cinnamon rolls and they were great too. =0) Kellyc
These are good. I didn't have millet flour so I used flax seed meal and had to increase the sorghum flour slightly. I'm going to try a dairy free version next! Thanks.
