Gluten Free American Pancakes

Charlotte Pike runs gluten free courses at White Pepper Cookery School and shares with us a fantastic recipe below…

Charlotte says ”There are times when you just can’t beat an American pancake. They are fantastic to make for breakfast, when you have time, or make a gorgeous dessert which can be whipped up in a matter of minutes, and which mainly uses store cupboard ingredients.”

This is a recipe for gluten free American pancakes which we regularly enjoy. They can be a little more fragile than pancakes made with wheat flour.

The hardest part of making these is deciding what you would like on top. My favourite is maple syrup and fresh blueberries.
