Easy Pancakes (Gluten-Free)
In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease, and since then it has become an invaluable resource to people worldwide who seek information about celiac disease and the gluten-free diet.
In 1998 I created The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore! which was also another Internet firstâit was the first gluten-free food site to offer a shopping cart-style interface, and the ability for people to order gluten-free products manufactured by many different companies at a single Web site.
I am also co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.
This recipe comes to us from Lin Goldkrantz.
Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl:
1 cup rice four
½ cup tapioca flour
¼ cup corn starch
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon xanthan gum
Add 2 large eggs and stir until egg is mostly absorbed. Add 1 cup of milk and stir again. Add a little less than 1 cup water, and only add the rest if needed. Be careful stirring. Dont beat. You need to get past the gelatinous, sticky stage, but you shouldnt over mix pancake batter. It should still have some lumps. Consistency should be a little thick, but liquid enough to pour.
Melt butter in frying pan or on griddle. Scoop batter onto pan. When the top side starts to have bubbles or holes around the edges, flip pancakes.
Makes 10 four inch pancakes.
