Pancake Recipe

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

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.

    • Hello!  When I find myself up at odd hours, I put on this celiac disease Mozart for Meditation... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000VFQ58U/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1516086445&sr=8-1&pi=SX350_PI_PJPrime-Sash-Extra-Large-2017,TopLeft,0,0_AC_SX118_SY170_QL70&keywords=mozart+for+meditation+celiac disease And I get out my dot to dot book, like one of these for adults.... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/s/ref=is_s_ss_i_0_5?k=dot+to+dot+books+for+adults&sprefix=dot+t&crid=2B42N4PRIT56H Sometimes I knit mindless objects such as hats, washcloths or socks.  Knitting has a soothing rhythm to it and is easy to learn... Or I read a book about knitting and life... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/1603420622/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1516087016&sr=8-2&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=McPhee+knitting&dpPl=1&dpID=51fHYy2xXsL&ref=plSrch Or a knitting mystery.... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B001LRLJUG/ref=mp_s_a_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1516087587&sr=8-6&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=knitting+mysteries&dpPl=1&dpID=51z43F8UuuL&ref=plSrch Knitting is really easy to learn.  I find it soothing to work with natural fibers, organic cotton for washcloths or luscious alpaca for socks...  But I find it inadvisable to shop online in the wee hours...  😸 I've got way too much yarn now...hee hee hee...  besides, the light from electronic devices keeps your brain awake longer.... Hope this helps.... Knitty Kitty  
    • My only symptom was slight nausea. Lasted 6 months before it started to only happen if I ate too much food in a sitting. I would eat simple, bland foods and eat 6 small meals instead of three big ones.
    • I've lost some of my sense of taste due most likely to zinc deficiency from not eating beef for a couple of years. Zinc supplement doesn't seem to help, but eating .5 to 1 lb of beef per day definitely does help. I noticed a positive change within days of eating beef. I don't know if your diet includes beef, but if it doesn't there's a reason for you.   Zinc and Geographic Tongue
    • I was in your same boat when I was diagnosed. Terribly fearful of cancer and all the damage I unknowingly had done. I don’t cheat, but I’m not as good as I need to be at restaurants (I only order off gluten-free menus but I don’t talk to managers like I should, etc) and I eat out once a week with never having symptoms. My main symptom is absolute, complete brain fog. I am truly not the person I used to be. I’ve always had anxiety, so that wasn’t any worse, but I hate to say this about myself but i got “dumb”. It was my first week in nursing school when I was diagnosed. What a great time, huh? I had to stay at school until midnight-2am 4 nights a week just to try to focus and control this brain fog. I used to be smart, quick witted, and very present in the moment. I know life changes, but my life is busy yet very peaceful and I struggle with this daily. I can’t comprehend medical concepts quickly like before and it’s very depressing. I also have a pretty good diet but have weighed 165 (I’m 5’4”) for three years with doing cardio, training for marathons,  etc..nothing gets this weight off (have had thyroid issues since age 7). Anyways. You are not alone. My doctor diagnosed me 5 years ago and told me to stay gluten free and I never saw him again! No follow-ups... I had no clue I had to! Anyways, I have an appointment upcoming as well.  Best of luck to you ❤️
