You won’t believe these are gluten free

Recipe by kingarthurflour.com

* you can use butter or other vegetable oil
* I recommend using only the King Arthur Measure for Measure flour in this recipe. I have tried other flours and they did not work as well.

Ingredients

  • 2
    large eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups
    dairy free milk
  • 3 tablespoons
    grapeseed oil*
  • 1 1/2 cups
    King Arthur measure for measure flour*
  • 3/4 teaspoon
    salt
  • 2 teaspoons
    baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons
    granulated sugar

Cooking Directions

  1. Beat the eggs and milk until light and foamy, about 3 minutes at high speed of a stand or hand mixer. Stir in the butter or vegetable oil.
  2. Whisk the dry ingredients together to evenly distribute the salt, baking powder and sweetener.
  3. Gently and quickly mix into the egg and milk mixture. Let the batter rest for at least 15 minutes, while the griddle is heating; it”ll thicken slightly.
  4. Heat a heavy frying pan over medium heat, or set an electric griddle to 375°F. Lightly grease frying pan or griddle. The pan or griddle is ready if a drop of water will skitter across the surface, evaporating immediately.
  5. Drop 1/4 cupfuls of batter onto the lightly greased griddle. Bake on one side until bubbles begin to form and break, about 2 minutes; then turn the pancakes and cook the other side until brown, about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Turn over only once. Serve immediately.
  6. Yield: 1 dozen large (4 1/2″) pancakes
