Pancake Recipe

11 posts in this topic

We bought a Gluten-free all purpose baking mix made by Arrowhead Mills. On the back are recipes for biscuits, waffles and banana bread. Is there a way to make pancakes with this? Also, is the baking mix different than gluten-free flours? Sorry if these are dumb questions, and thanks for your response! :P

We just had gluten free pancakes this morning. I looked at A LOT of recipes and then just made my old recipe and used white rice flour. They were so great! My kids didn't even notice a difference and my husband said "you can make these ALL the time". I was pleased...

Here's the recipe...

1 cup white rice flour

1 Tbs sugar

2 tsp baking powder

pinch salt

1 cup milk

1 egg

2 Tbs oil

Mix well, cook on hot skillet.

They were REALLY good, we were all surprised!

I bet, also, if you went onto Arrowhead Mills website, they would have recipes using their flours/mixes.

ALSO....btw....the difference between a baking mix and a plain flour is that usually baking mixes have already added the baking powder/salt/soda (the levening agent to make them rise). Plain flours do not. SOMETIMES a baking mix already has the fat added into it too (like a bisquick - which you wouldn't use anyway b/c it's not gluten free - just using as an example).

Good luck!!!

So you don't need to add xanthan gum? I made some fried fish last night with a eatingglutenfree.com pancake recipe. It had xanthan gum. Ultimately, I got a crunchy, good end product, but the batter was . . . gummy(?) . . . it kept pulling back on itself. I had to add a lot more milk that the recipe called for. Should I have omitted the xanthan gum. I'm still kind of new at gluten-free baking/cooking.

Pardon me for butting in here. When I make something with a breaded coating I leave out the xanthan gum. I've found that it gets thick and gummy like you discovered. I use xanthan gum in almost all my baking, but not for oven fried chicken or fish (or the fried onion rings I made).

I'm REALLY new at this....but I've been reading a lot. I thought XGum was for when you wanted a bread like texture - that it replaced the elasticity that's normally created by the gluten? Maybe I'm wrong.

I did not notice ANYTHING different about the pancakes. They were light, fluffy. Maybe a LITTLE bit drier than normal BUT way good. WAY good!!!

Another thing to note is that xanthan gum comes in different strengths. Sometimes I'll get a pkg. of xanthan gum that is so strong that I have to cut all my amounts in half when I make a recipe. That may be part of the problem. But if you are getting the batter will hold together without the xanthan gum, then just leave it out.

2 tsp baking powder

1 cup milk

1 egg

2 Tbs oil

I have a few questions if you don't mind; does the oil go in the mixture or is it to grease the pan? How many pancakes should this recipe make? I've never cooked American style pancakes before and ended up with 2 enormous ones about 1cm thick, which were nice but probably meant for more than one person?

Thanks!

Pamela's baking mix is great too! I add some chocolate chips while the pancakes are cooking and my kids love them!!

I think even diced apples are wonderful to add with some cinnamon...

Kinnikinik makes a good pancake mix too.

OR, make crepes, kids love them.

Two eggs

1 cup milk (I use Almond milk, not dairy)

1 cup rice flour (I tried sourgum but it doesn't work as well) - or use 1 cup unlevened mix, or use corn starch

dash or so of Vanilla

1-2 TBLSP sugar

Whisk until smooth and creamy

Cook in hot pan in a little butter (I do mine first in olive oil - then the kids in butter)

Of course they are that much better if you use real butter and real milk.

    • It is best not to try and do this on your own. Talk to your allergist. Not all will deal with food intolerances but if yours doesn't find one who will.  Mine had me fill out a very detailed diet questionaire and tested for true allergies before he gave me my starting point. I will admit I wasn't real happy with my starting point since none of my usual foods were on it. He said that I was most likely to react to foods I ate the most so most of the 5 I either rarely ate or didn't really like. The prescribed starting point he formulated was designed to make sure I had adaquate nutrition and enough calories.   It took about 2 weeks before a lot of my tummy issues resolved and I was then able to start adding foods in one at a time for a week before moving on to the next.  He said food intolerance reactions can take up to a week to show up so I had to be sure it was a full week between food additions. I did have to call three offices before I found a doctor who could do the formulation of the diet but this guy truely saved my life. Out of all the doctors I had seen, including specialists in big hospitals, he was the one responsible for finally realizing I was celiac. He of course referred me back to my clueless GI doctor who confirmed the diagnosis by almost killing me with a gluten challenge. I should note that some of my intolerance (not gluten of course) did resolve after I had healed. Even dairy which I hadn't been able to have for years! I hope you can get some answers and are able to heal soon.
    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid.
