When you’re new to navigating the world of gluten-free food and cooking, it can be a little daunting. However, as more gluten-free products appear on our supermarket shelves, and new delicious recipes are created all over the world, the fallacious claims that gluten-free meals taste “bad” is increasingly untrue. 

For some, eating gluten-free is not an option, in particular for individuals with coeliac disease, however opting for a gluten-free diet can also provide many well-researched health benefits. Some of these include the easing of chronic inflammation of the digestive system, feeling more energetic and experiencing better weight-loss. 

If you’re looking to incorporate more gluten-free friendly recipes into your cooking repertoire, why not give these fluffy gluten-free pancakes a try for your next breakfast. Simple and easy-to-make like regular pancakes, you can customise the toppings to your liking. 

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of All-Purpose Gluten-Free Flour
  • 1/2 tsp of Xanthan Gum (if not already in gluten-free flour)
  • 1 tbsp Gluten-Free Baking Powder
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1.5 cups milk

Method:

  1. Place dry ingredients into a mixing bowl and stir well. 
  2. In a separate bowl, gently mix the milk and egg together, gradually pour the wet mixture into the mixing bowl with the dry ingredients, and stir until well-combined. The consistency is right if a small amount of the mixture drops from the spoon when gently shaken. If too thick, pour a small amount of milk into the batter to get to the right consistency. 
  3. Heat a non-stick frying pan or skillet to medium high heat. If using a non-stick pan, greasing is optional. 
  4. Using a small ladle or spoon, add batter to the desired size of your pancake on the pan. 
  5. Cook the pancakes for approximately 2-3 minutes on each side (as gluten-free pancakes may not show as many bubbles as regular pancakes do).
  6. Should your pancakes look a little pale, you can increase the heat slightly until they are looking more golden. 
  7. After each pancake is cooked, plate and stack the pancakes. 
  8. Serve with fresh berries of your choice, with optional maple or golden syrup or other toppings to your preferred taste.
