Delicious Gluten-Free Pancakes – Fluffy Recipe
Honestly, for years we struggled to get the taste, texture, and fluffiness just right. However, after tons of cooking, flipping, and tasting, we have found the recipe for the best pancakes you will ever eat. Find out more below.
- Up to 1 ½ cups of gluten-free flour (try to use the all-purpose one)
- 3 teaspoons of baking powder
- A pinch of salt
- A bit of sugar (usually we put about 1 tablespoon)
- 1 ¼ cup of milk
- 1 egg
- 3 tablespoons of butter (optional, but we rarely skip it)
- Strawberry topping (optional)
These are the steps to follow to make delicious gluten-free pancakes – a fluffy recipe.
Step No. 1: Whisk the Dry Ingredients
In a large mixing bowl, add all the dry ingredients, i.e. flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Whisk by hand until all ingredients are well combined.
We are going to reveal a game-changing trick. Namely, we always put dry ingredients in a sifter or fine-mesh strainer in order to sift them into a bowl. This is one of the factors that directly affect the lightness of the pancake mixture.
Step No. 2: Add the Wet Ones
Many people skip this step but make sure you always beat the eggs separately before adding them to the other wet ingredients. When you’ve done that part, mix them with milk, melted butter, and finally with the dry ingredients, and gently whisk again until just combined.
Also, don’t worry if you notice lumps in the mixture, as long as they are not too big they will not affect the quality of the final product.
Pro tip: Don’t whisk too much because you risk knocking all the air out of it, and that as you can guess, results in dense and chewy pancakes instead of light and fluffy ones.
Step No. 3: Cook & Flip
Heat a griddle or a large pan over medium heat, make sure it’s non-stick. How much batter you use per pancake depends on your preference, however, we usually pour or scoop about ¼ cup of batter for each pancake.
Pay attention to the two basic signs that will show that your pancake is ready to be turned: the formation of bubbles and the acquisition of a golden-brown color on the underside. You will usually need 2-3 minutes on each side for your pancake to be perfectly cooked.
We recommend that you store them in a preheated 170°F oven on an oven-safe tray covered with aluminum foil. Few people know this trick, but it’s actually great because it prevents them from drying out.
That’s it, now you know how to make delicious gluten-free pancakes – a fluffy recipe.
