A subject that has become dear to my heart

Gluten Free Pancakes...

As far as I can tell they are not to be found here in Switzerland, correct me if I'm wrong.

I've resorted to buying mixes on iherb.

One was the only really good one, King Arthur Flour GFPs.
- it had good texture
- most importantly though it tasted really good
- it was very forgiving,
- you could make one pancake on saturday and leave the rest in the fridge for a pancake on sunday
- you could mess around with proportions and it would still have a squidgy pancakey taste

next was

Bobs Red Mill GFP .. a bit meh, texture and taste wise and did not give a good puff when left in the fridge overnight

then

Arrowhead Mills Organic GFP ... also meh

I was especially sad about this one as it was organic and had the same probs as bob red mill

then i made my own using this taste of home recipe

ok but doesnt taste like pancake

I think i also tried just using the aldi gf flour (which is just corn flour/starch) and that didnt taste like a pancake if i remember correctly.

Anyone have a good recipe for gluten free pancakes so I can look forward to my saturdays?

Re: A subject that has become dear to my heart

Can't you just use gluten-free flour in a standard recipe?

Re: A subject that has become dear to my heart

Ive tried the aldi and the migros al natura gf (normal not pancake) flour and neither are redolent of pancake.. in fact the migros al natura bio richly deserves its poor reviews..

I've made them using the same proportions as the pre made mixes.

They need Nutella. Or honey. They feel like dessert, not breakfast, however.

Re: A subject that has become dear to my heart

I use Doves Farm self raising flour, eggs and milk for pancakes. Yum!

Of all the gluten free flours, I prefer Doves.

You need to play around a bit with quantities etc when using gluten free flour in recipes, you can't just replace normal flour with gluten free and expect the same results.

I tend to use the Aldi flour if I need gluten free.

Gluten Free Pancakes...


Anyone have a good recipe for gluten free pancakes so I can look forward to my saturdays?
We do ours like this (but usually with scaled up quantities)

200g GF Schaer flour (from Co-op)
25g caster sugar.
About 350ml milk (add milk until correct consistency)
pinch salt
1.5 tsp baking powder
1 egg.

Mix all together with whisker.

They're actually much lighter than pancakes with normal flour.

I dont know if you know but you can get brown rice flour from the migros al natura stores, I didnt see white rice flour or tapioca flour, so i bought those on iherb. but not before i broke my grinder trying to grind tapioca pearls. An 80EUR experiment

your recipe also looks like a great camping recipe, because of the dry milk, just add water!

To simulate your recipe a little, I added some tapioca flour to the taste of home recipe, ¼ cup but i think that might have been too much as it has a very distinctive flavour and texture, but its getting close.

I think what makes the king arthur one good (even stand alone without syrups) is a maple flavour and. a vanilla flavour.. the liquid vanilla i ordered from iherb isnt really nice (a bit alcoholly and sour!) and i havnt tried to find a maple yet.

heres the ingredients and it pretty much mimics your recipe

Whole grain brown rice flour,
potato starch,
tapioca starch,
rice flour,
sugar,
leavening (calcium acid pyrophosphate, monocalcium phosphate, baking soda),
natural flavor,
salt,
xanthan gum,
niacinamide (A B vitamin),
reduced iron,
thiamin hydrochloride (vitamin B1),
riboflavin (vitamin B2).

You can usually find rice flour and tapioca flour in the Asian stores.
