Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine gluten-free flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in a large bowl; mix well.

  • Mix egg, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract together in a second bowl until well combined. Stir flour mixture into egg mixture with a wooden spoon until a lumpy batter forms. Pour in milk and mix until a smooth batter forms. Set batter aside to thicken, 5 to 10 minutes. Add more milk, 1 tablespoon at a time, if batter is too thick.

  • Heat oil in a griddle over medium-low heat. Drop 1 to 2 heaped tablespoonfuls onto the 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. Repeat with remaining batter.

I used an extra egg and a little less flour (around 1/4 cups). Without these they were a bit too thick. Overall, I would recommend these pancakes. Read More

I’m no stranger to making great pancakes. For 40 years, people have raved about how light and fluffy they are. I realize that gluten free poses some challenges, but to call these pancakes light and fluffy is VERY misleading. Even after adjustments, I threw the batter AND and pancakes out. Sorry to post a negative review, but I believe it’s better to be honest so readers see all sides. Read More

I loved how simple this recipe was! And all the cinnamon! I did however, have to add baking soda, because as is, my pancakes were flat and heavy. Adding about a tsp of baking soda helped. Read More

The pancakes were great, though, the recipe does not use any form of sweetener. I recommend using 5-6 tablespoons of sugar or sweetener to avoid a salty pancake. Read More
