Gluten Free Pancakes

Doves Farm recipe

Our recipe

Pancakes are traditionally served on Shrove Tuesday. One of our most popular recipes, it is unlikely that anyone will notice that these great pancakes are gluten free. As there is an increasing need for recipes free not only from gluten but other allergens, try our suggested ingredient swops if you would like to make gluten free pancakes also free from dairy and/or eggs. Serve warm with lemon juice and sugar. What a treat!

Really tasty pancakes that you couldn't tell the difference between those made with wheat flour. A great hit with my guests.

I am not a coeliac but my wife is, I made the recipe as above and it is very good, you can't tell the difference to regular pancakes. Some notes, generally you always add the oil or "fat" to a pancake mixture so add the 1tbsp of oil to the mixture or melted butter, but this is not critical. I uesed 2 medium eggs, not sure if using large eggs will make a difference? I added 1tsp of cinnamon to the flour for a little extra flavour. I think 500ml of milk is a lot and I'm going to try it again with 350 or 400ml cows milk instead and a pinch of salt, which is also quite traditional. Otherwise a great recipe and one I'll be using again and again and not just on pancake Tuesday.

First time I've made gluten free pancakes. The mix is very thin but works. You just have to practice a few like any pancake to get thickness right. Lovely and light, fluffy pancakes.

Nice flavour although I might experiment with using less milk as the mixture was so thin even after leaving it to stand for over an hour and struggled to get thickness right in pan when cooking.

I have just made fantastic pancakes with this recipe, however I used soya milk instead of cows milk. Everyone enjoyed them, no one noticed they were different.

I was worried that i would have to go without this pancake day after being diagnosed as coeliac in December last year. Doves Farm to the recue. THis recipe is great. The batter is quite watery but cooks beautifully. Make sure you leave it to stand for an hour though!

After the success of this recipe, i can't wait to try out some more from this site, particularly the choux pastry.

I've blogged my pancake experience here if you fancy a nose www.tammingtons.com

Thank you so much for this delicious recipe! This is the first time I've made anything using gluten free flour and all my family loved them! They couldn't tell the difference between them and the traditional ones! I will definately use more of your recipes in the future.
