Gluten Free Scotch Pancakes

by - Wednesday, May 22, 2019

I haven't done a blog post since LAST YEAR! And seeing as we are almost half way through 2019, that is pretty crazy! Life has just been busy. Like SO busy.

I've wanted to share this recipe for a while now. Normally I make recipes that are totally healthy and don't have any nasties in them. Including things like sugar, cows milk etc. However, this recipe for fluffy Scotch Pancakes has become a family favourite recipe in our house, especially on Saturday mornings when we do Pancakes! They turn out thick and fluffy which I was so surprised by. I'm yet to try switching the ingredients up and substituting some of them for healthier alternatives, but if you want to do that, go for it! For now, I'm just happy that we've got a staple Gluten Free recipe that April loves, and they actually taste like regular pancakes! She downs them so fast, and doesn't feel like she's missing out for once. Woo!

Here goes.

30g Butter
1 & 1/2 cups of GF Self Raising Flour (I use this one)

1 cup of Milk
1 tbsp of Raw Sugar
1 Egg
1/4 tsp of Pink Salt

Maple Syrup

I used my thermo to combine ingredients, but you can obviously use whatever you normally use. First, melt the butter. Then add the egg and milk, and blend together well. Add the GF self raising flour, raw sugar and pink salt. Blend well. Scrape down the sides of your bowl making sure you've got all the flour, and then blend once more to make sure it's all combined. I like to tip out the mixture straight away into a bowl so that I can wash out the thermo straight away.

Pop a pan on the stove, on medium heat. Once heated up, use a 1/4 cup measuring cup as a scoop, and scoop out your pancakes. If you use roughly 1/4 cup of mixture for each pancake, you will get about 8 pancakes. In my pan, I can cook 2 - 3 pancakes at the same time, making it fairly quick. They only need a couple minutes each side.

Once you scoop the mixture into the pan, use the back of a little spoon to help spread the pancake into a nice round shape.

And that's it, all done! Stack them up, and serve with desired toppings!
I was feeling creative and decided to try out a few different varieties of these pancakes, changing up the flour to achieve different thicknesses! But these are definitely our favourite. If you don't want them quite as thick, you can try the following alternatives to the flour.

1 cup of GF Plain Flour (I use this one) for crepes.
1 cup of GF Self Raising Flour for regular pancakes.

Enjoy and happy pancake-ing!!
