American Pancakes

Updated: Mar 9, 2021

So, who doesn't love a batch of warm, sweet smelling pancakes fresh off the pan? I am a bit of sucker for them myself and like mixing them up a bit with different toppings. Here is my family favourite American pancake recipe that is gluten and dairy free so everyone can enjoy them. I have included my own favourite toppings but you can add whatever takes your fancy. Note: this mix will thicken after a while so just loosen the mix with some additional water or milk

Ingredients (makes approx 9-10 medium pancakes)

150g gluten free flour (I love buckwheat)

90g ground almonds

1 tsp baking powder (gluten free - Dove's Farm)

1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda (gluten free - Dove's Farm)

1/2 tsp salt

1 large free range egg

300ml milk (I use almond, coconut or oat milk but you can use regular milk also)

2 tbsp honey or maple syrup

1tsp ground cinnamon

Oil for the pan

Optional toppings: berries, nut butter, yogurt, maple syrup, coconut chips, cacao nibs, chopped nuts or melted dark chocolate


  1. Mix the flour, ground almonds, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl.

  2. In a jug, mix the egg, milk and mapy syrup or honey. Pour into the flour mix and whisk until lump-free.

  3. Heat a large frying pan or pancake pan on a medium heat and add some oil. Add a spoonful of pancake mix to the pan and allow to cook for approx 2 minutes (wait until bubbles appear on the surface). Flip the pancake over and cook for additional 2 minutes before removing from the pan.

  4. Continue to cook the remaining batter and keep the pancakes warm in the oven until ready to serve
