  • non stick frying pan


  • 300 grams Gluten free Self Raising Flour  To make self raising flour at home by mixing 2 teaspoons of baking powder with every 125 grams of Gluten free All purpose flour (Plain flour in the UK).

  • In a smaller bowl mix milk and eggs together
  • Combine wet mixture and dry mixture together in the large bowl and stir until combined.
  • Leave the mixture to rest for at least 15-30 minutes this will result in fluffier pancakes
  • brush your non stick pan with a little oil or butter and set to a medium heat.
  • pour in desired amount of pancake mix and cook for 2-3 minutes each side. (I use a small ladle to measure out my pancake mixture)
  • You will know when the pancakes are ready to be turned as they will form small bubbles on top.
  • Plate up and enjoy with your favourite topping.


NOTE: Always check that all your ingredients are gluten free.
