  1. Put the flour, icing sugar and baking powder into a bowl and stir to combine.
  2. Break the eggs into a mixing bowl (or measure the chickpea flour + water into the bowl).
  3. Add the milk to the egg bowl and beat together well.
  4. Stir in the dry ingredients, then add the melted butter. Beat into a smooth thick batter.
  5. Pour a little oil into a frying pan, roll it around to cover the surface and heat until nice and hot.
  6. Pour batter into the pan to make 7.5cm/3” circles and cook on a medium heat.
  7. When bubbles appear on the surface and the base is golden turn the pancakes over and cook the other side.
  8. Repeat with the remaining batter.
  9. Serve warm with your favourite toppings.

I used pure olive spread instead of butter. Unfortunately it reacted with the baking powder when I mixed them together. So okay pancakes but not so fluffy.

Excellent recipe. Lovely fluffy American style pancakes. Originally thought the batter was going to be too thick, but when u add the melted butter at the end, the consistency is perfect. Makes 10 as stated. Would definitely make again.

Great recipe! I was looking for an easy pancakes recipe for my allergic son, and this is perfect. I used egg replacer instead of chickpeas flour because I didn’t have it, used oat milk and Stork vegetable baking fat instead of butter and it all worked out well. Delicious pancakes, thank you!

I halved the recipe because it makes quite alot. Perfect pancakes, looked American to me, my 10 year old said they were better than gluten recipe. Had them with bacon and maple syrup. Thankyou so much for this recipe ❤

I liked the pancakes somewhat although they didn’t look like American pancakes. But what was the melted butter for? I wasted 50g as I prepped the ingredients before starting the recipe. Maybe proof read your recipes?
