I really want to make these but Step 1 says mix flour and baking powder - how much baking powder please? None is listed in the ingredients list.

Hi Gillian - Thanks for pointing this out! This recipe does not need any added baking powder as there already raising agents within the flour blend. The recipe has now been amended. Many thanks, Doves Farm

Love this recipe, I swap dairy milk for coconut milk and it works out great.

Lovely! Made savoury versions with 75g of cheddar and 30g of parmesan (approx measures!). I also added black pepper, salt and half teaspoon of mustard powder and omitted the sugar of course. Yummy with butter, my husband didn't realise that they were gluten free!!

Fab pancakes, however, little less milk required, added vanilla and 1 tablespoon of sugar instead of two.
