gluten free Pancake Recipe from Scratch Overview

I made these pancakes recently just to see how a rice flour pancake could taste. I was actually quite surprised in a very good way. Not only did they taste great, they were easy to prepare and cook. They seemed to have a little crispiness on the outside while still tender inside. Something a regular pancake never did for me.
I used butter and a gluten free berry topping for my test plate here and got to say, these will probably be my go-to home recipe whenever making pancakes from now on.

  2. Add the milk, egg and melted butter while vigorously whisking to blend all into a creamy batter. Let the mixture rest for 10 minutes to allow rice flour to become hydrated. Imagine cooking rice in a rice cooker – it takes a while for the rice to become tender and hydrated, and rice flour is similar in its ability to absorb.

  3. Preheat a frying pan with oil, until hot. Spoon dollops of batter into the pan and let them cook until bubbles appear and start to pop. Flip the pancakes and cook until done. Remember that rice flour may not hold together as well as traditional flour, so just be a little careful when turning.
