Spiced Gluten Free Pancakes
These Spiced Gluten Free Pancakes were the first thing I made with the Gluten Free All Purpose Flour Mix I shared last week. I had some issues and had to dive deep into recipe development. The recipe below comes after multiple tries so please enjoy on a Sunday morning with your gluten free pals.
I really love pancakes. I don’t know if that is clear yet even though there are quite a few pancake recipes on this blog. The first thing I did when the doctor told me to try a gluten free diet was make pancakes, pancakes and more pancakes! Well after I made an gluten free all purpose flour mix. What can I say? I just really love breakfast foods.
Since seeing if going gluten free made any difference (it’s really hard to tell, I have no idea to be honest!) I’ve found a new passion: experimenting with gluten free flour mixes, alternative baking techniques and other substitutions, like making a recipe vegan or dairy-free.
I was getting sort of bored in my baking routine so this is definitely adding new and interesting elements to the mix. I’m finding it extremely fascinating. Since baking is a science it leads to endless opportunities to learn and grow as a baker. Thanks for following along with me.
These pancakes were made gluten free using a gluten free all purpose flour mix. Feel free to use any brand 1:1 gluten free flour such as Bob's Red Mill.
Yield: 8-10 pancakes
Prep Time: 15 min
Cook Time: 15 min
Total Time: 30 min
1 cup Gluten Free All Purpose Flour
2 tablespoons unrefined sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
2 tablespoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup milk or almond milk
2 tablespoons butter, melted
Preheat a griddle and lightly grease with a pat of butter.
In a medium bowl, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, xanthan gum, cinnamon and nutmeg together.
Add your choice of milk, melted butter and egg to the dry mixture and mix until fully combined.
Using a large cookie scoop, scoop out the batter onto the griddle. The batter might need a little help spreading into a circle shape, do this by using the back of the cookie scoop and gently spread the batter outward. Cook until bubbles form on the top, about 2-4 minutes. Flip the pancake using a large spatula and cook for another 2-4 minutes.
Optional: Top with sliced strawberries and homemade whipped cream or coconut whipped cream.
