Total Time 20 minutes


  • 1 ½ cup gluten free all-purpose flour
  • 3 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt or more to taste
  • 1 ½ cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons butter melted
  • 1 egg


  • Sift together 1 1/2 cup gluten free all-purpose flour, 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder, 1 tablespoon granulated sugar, 1/4 teaspoon salt together in a large bowl.
  • Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and add 1 1/2 cup milk, 3 tablespoons butter melted, and 1 egg; mix until smooth.
  • Heat a lightly oiled griddle or pan over medium-high heat.
  • Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each gluten free pancake; cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Flip and cook until browned on the other side.
  • Repeat with remaining batter.

Making pancakes from scratch is really not that difficult, but they are also not that difficult to mess up.

We recommend using fresh ingredients, especially gluten free flour & baking powders. Stir the batter only until the wet and dry ingredients are incorporated. Overbeating will make pancakes tough and chewy instead of fluffy.

Cook those gluten free pancakes on a flat, heavy-bottomed, preheated and well-greased surface for best results and know when to flip. Trust the tell-tale flip signs, bubbles form on the surface of the pancakes and pop or the pancake edges are slightly dry.

Warm plates in a low oven, then use them to serve your pancakes hot from the stovetop. Maple syrup is the ideal Canadian finish, or top with your favourite fruits & sweets too.

Prefer Buttermilk? No Problem! 
For each 1 cup buttermilk, mix 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice with enough milk to equal 1 cup and let stand for 5 minutes.

    The batter was surprisingly thick, and they took slightly longer to cook than I expected, but they ultimately turned out amazingly fluffy. one of the best gluten free pancake recipes I have followed, maybe number one
