These are super easy and fast to make and delicious! Herself loves making pancakes on the weekends and since they don’t really sit well with me I thought I would create my own GF and DF version. I have to say that after playing around and trying numerous mixtures of flours these Griddle cakes are the best mix I have managed. Basically I have swapped the flours and milks to make a basic pancake recipe gluten and dairy free so I’m sure there are a million and one other versions online if these don’t tickle your fancy.
They are thick (the mixture is thick so the cakes are too as the mixture doesn’t run) and just the right taste to be able to use as a toast or pikelet substitute. I also cooked these in coconut oil, something new for me I have to say, which actually made them all the better. I have had them for breakfast with spreads, for breakfast with a poached egg and for lunch with some salad. As with most GF things though they are best used on the day they are made however they can be made in the morning and still tasting good at lunch. Actually, to be completely honest, they haven’t lasted beyond lunch for me to know if they would be good after this!
Anyway … enough chat. Here is the recipe.
GF, DF Griddle Cakes (makes 12-15)
1/3 Cup Rice Flour
1/3 Cup Buckwheat Flour
1/3 Cup Coconut Flour
1 Cup Rice Milk
- Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl until they are well blended.
- Heat a cast iron pan (griddle) and put some coconut oil in.
- Spoon in the mixture and flatten a little into a round shape. I fitted about 3 cakes into the pan at a time.
- Cook until there are air bubbles/pockets appearing on the surface and then flip.
- Remove when they are browned on both sides.
It really is that simple. As I said before there are probably heaps of other alternatives to these that you can find online however why not play around and get your own ‘sweet’ mixture? They are a great, quick ‘whip up’ meal when time is short and a yummy afternoon treat with jam too if need be.
Hope this finds you enjoying life to the fullest.
