Gluten Free people are so annoying. I apologize in advance for adding just one more HM (high maintenance) curve ball into everyone’s lives. The worst is going out to eat. For me, it’s really not a big deal, I usually find something on the menu. But I hate being that guy.
For the most part I generally find that my contemporaries are more than accommodating, or at the very least, empathic to my situation. As Gluten Free diets are becoming more and more common I thought I would write about my first attempt at Gluten Free pancakes. I swear to God… I didn’t follow a recipe. Not that pancakes are terribly difficult to figure out, but lately I think I’ve become rather adept at recreating traditional gluteny dishes sans the gluten.
This Gluten Free pancake recipe tastes exactly like pancakes. Seriously, I don’t know if anyone could tell the difference.
I used Trader Joe’s Gluten Free flour.
You will need:
(Recipe for 2 persons, yields 6-7 pancakes. Double recipe for more guests.)
- 1 cup Gluten Free flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp salt
- 1-2T olive oil
- 1/4c sugar
- 1/4c whole milk
In my stand mixer I combined all ingredients until I had a fairly smooth and viscous batter. You don’t want a batter that is too thick, the batter should easily run off a wooden spoon.
Pre-heat a pan on medium-high heat (adjust accordingly) with a splash of olive oil.
Pour a small amount of batter in the center of the pan. When the batter becomes visibly thickened, flip the pancake.
Add a pat of butter and dress with your favorite pancake syrup, sauce or topping. As I am going to be visiting my Danish Family in Copenhagen in the coming year I decided to top these Gluten Free pancakes with a kirsebær sauce (cherry sauce).
So, so very good. (Det smaget det rigtigt godt!)
Now I just need some Gammel Dansk! (Or ålborg akvavit.)
Really? I am a gluten free chef and baker, and decided to take a chance with your recIpe. Cardboard pancakes. Disgusting. have you ever tried pamelas Pancake and baking mix? 200x better. THEY taste like regular pancakes.
Oh so sorry to hear that–I thought they were amazing but I’ve been GF for so long who knows. Will give your suggestion a try.
