  • 1 cup all-purpose gluten-free flour

  • ½ teaspoon gluten-free baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ½ cup cold milk, or more as needed

  • cooking spray


  1. Whisk flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon together in a bowl until well combined.

  2. Whisk egg, vegetable oil, and vanilla together in a second bowl until well combined. Gradually stir dry ingredients into wet ingredients with a wooden spoon until incorporated; batter should still be still lumpy. Add milk and mix until batter is smooth. Let sit until thickened, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir in more milk, 1 tablespoon at a time, if batter is too thick.

  3. Spray a griddle with cooking spray and preheat over medium-low heat.

  4. Working in batches, drop 1 to 2 heaping tablespoonfuls onto the preheated griddle for each pancake. Cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes.
