Just in time for Shrove Tuesday, Gluten Free American Pancakes.
In the UK our pancakes are usually quite wide and thin, similar to a French crêpe – but once you’ve tried a proper American pancake stack, it’s hard to go back.
These Gluten Free American Pancakes are thick and fluffy, just like you’ll get in the States, but with no gluten in there to irritate you. It’s similar to a traditional pancake or Yorkshire pudding batter, with the addition of something sweet (like syrup, honey or sugar) and some baking power, to puff them up.
Rather than pouring the mix into a frying pan and swirling it round to the rim (like you would with French crêpes) you’ll want to spoon them in with a ladle in generous dollops and definitely not swirl the pan! Your Gluten Free American Pancakes should be about the size of a big drinks coaster or small side plate, as equal as you can get them, for that authentic stack effect.
Serve these Gluten Free American Pancakes with whatever you like – syrup (maple or golden), bacon, or fresh fruit – or why not all of them, if you’re feeling fancy.
