American Style Gluten Free Pancakes

Honestly, this is not something I make often! This is very much a ‘I don’t want to get out of bed and I’m verging on depressed because the weekend’s almost over’ kind of meal. BUT – it is the easiest thing to do, and I pretty much always have the right ingredients somewhere in my kitchen, so it’s not something I have to particularly prepare for.

I’ve tried many gluten free pancakes with all sorts of flour substitutes. Sometimes they come out okay, but I often struggle with getting a similar texture to what I was used to before I became gluten free. With time, I’ve concluded that my all time favourite, for both crepes and american style pancakes is using simple recipes with Dove’s Gluten Free flour.

What you’ll need:

  • 2 cups of gluten free flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups milk (I use lactose free)
  • 2 tbsp room temperature butter
  • 3tsp vanilla


  • BACON!!!

Just mix the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder into a big bowl then slowly add the rest, whisking until it all comes together. I make the pan pretty hot, but then lower the heat right when I start cooking, and usually use 2 tablespoons of batter per pancake. When bubbles come up to the surface, flip the pancake, and then it should be done a couple minutes later!

Bon Appétit 🙂
