Puffy Pancakes

This recipe makes a puffier and more traditional-tasting pancake than the variable pancake recipe.

Turn on the stove to medium-low heat, and get a frying pan that heats evenly.

In a mixing bowl or blender combine:
  • 1 1/2 cup gluten-free flour mix
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp xanthan gum
  • if desired, some nutmeg or cinnamon
  • if desired, 1 Tbsp sugar
Omitting the sugar creates a pancake that does not burn as easily. If you are using syrup or a sweet topping, this is recommended.

Stir or shake well. This dry mix can be prepared in advance for camping.

Next add the wet ingredients:
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp citrus juice (we use lemon or orange)
Stir well, then make pancakes!

The batter is not very greasy, so the frying pan will need to be sprayed with oil before each pancake.
