Ok, so I ended up using sweet white sorghum flour and not sure if this is why but I thought the pancake tasted like there was sand in my teeth when I would chew. Pamela's pancake mix is still the way to go! :)

Sorry you had to answer your own post :D

I would have probably just used all white rice flour, since there was cornstarch in the recipe. Also, almond flour might have been good.

Gluten Free Pantry has an excellent pancake mix, too.

I also wanted to add that unless you are using "superfine" rice flour - that might account for the grittiness. I find things made with regular grind rice flour are heavy and gritty. Superfine makes a BIG difference. ;)

Just my .02 worth, in case you try again. You might replace the sweet rice flour with tapioca flour (keeping with a lighter pancake), or maybe even almond meal as already suggested. :P

its true that regular grind gives that sand in the mouth feeling but if you soak the rice flour in the milk before hand and then blend and then the rest of the ingredients the results are far superior...no grittiness.... :D

Thanks! I will give that a try. I am still looking for the perfect pancake. Pam's is still number 1 but I haven't really tried many other recipes and Pam's is a little doughy on the inside still but is better than nothing. I have already tried cooking it at a lower temp. and longer but still no luck.

Sweet rice is used for its starch so a good substitution is tapioca flour, potato starch, or corn starch but seeing corn starch is already in the receipe try tapioca or potato. I would also have to agree with using super fine rice flours otherwise they do tend to be gritty!!

I find my pan needs to be just a bit HOTTER for gluten-free pancakes. Took me a while to figure it out. It makes them rise better and gives that crispy crust.

Just so you know . . . you are answering a post that is almost three years old. Although the info is good for anyone else needing help with substitutions, the original poster probably has figured out which pancake recipe works for them :)

1/2 cup tapioca flour

1/4 potato starch

1Tablespoon baking powder

2 Tablespoons sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

Also makes great fluffy waffles if you add 1 Tablespoon of oil.

Thank you SOOOO MUCH for this suggestion!! I found a gluten free bread recipe that called for sweet rice flour that I had to bake today, and absolutely could not find sweet rice flour ANYWHERE in the Cleveland area! Desperate, I Google'd substitutions for sweet rice flour- and this post came up! Your answer was very helpful, and I chose to substitute tapioca flour in my recipe. Not only did your answer greatly help me, (the bread is in the oven now) but I also am thrilled that I found this group, which I didn't know existed! Thank you!!!

Look for sweet rice flour with the asian products or visit an asian food store.    The combination of flours needed to make an 'all purpose' flour is a science.  You need to get each type right or it won't work.  I use white rice flour, sweet rice flour, sorghum flour and tapioca flour to create mine, Sweet rice flour is also called glutenous rice flour (not to be confused with gluten :) )    5 parts white rice, 4 parts tapioca, 1 1/2 parts sweet rice, and 1 1/2 parts sorghum.   Parts can be Cups or lbs or whatever your quantity your mixing,. Mix well and store in the cupboard.    Don't forget xanthan gum to stabilize.   Less is more with that.
