Rice Flour Pancakes SacchiMoto-Style

This is my version of rice cakes. They have a wonderful hint of coconut after each bite. Serve these with a dollop of sour cream and drizzle lightly with some molasses or honey for a great morning get you going item or as a side dish with your favorite pork roast. Please enjoy and feel free to leave a comment letting me know whether or not this is a keeper for you.

6 rice flour pancakes


  • 3 eggs

  • ¾ cup coconut milk

  • 1 ½ tablespoons coconut oil

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon sea salt

  • 1 cup rice flour

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, or as needed


  1. Beat eggs, coconut milk, 1 1/2 coconut oil, baking powder, and sea salt together in a bowl until smooth. Gradually stir rice flour into the egg mixture until completely incorporated into a batter.

  2. Refrigerate batter for at least 1 hour.

  3. Melt enough coconut oil in a skillet over medium heat to coat cooking surface completely. Spoon batter into hot skillet to make 4-inch rounds. Cook pancakes until bubbles form on the top, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip cakes and continue cooking until golden on the bottom, about 2 minutes more.

Cook's Notes:

Remember, rice flour does not absorb liquid the way a gluten grain does. Due to this, you must let the batter sit for at least 1 hour.

Depending on the fineness of the rice flour you use, there may be a slight cornbread like texture to your final product.
