When making this gluten free recipe following a few simple rules will ensure your gluten free pancakes stays gluten free, we have some easy to follow tips on our Avoiding Gluten page


This recipe will make 5 large gluten free pancakes. 

3 ½ ozs (100g) gluten free plain flour
1 large egg
½ pint (500ml) milk
Oil for cooking.
A pinch of salt


1. Sieve the flour into a bowl.
2. Add the salt and the egg, beat a little to break yolk.
3. Mix the milk, a little at a time, until blended to a smooth batter.
4. Cover and store in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
5. When you are ready to make the pancakes, stir the batter to ensure fully mixed.
6. Add a little oil to the frying pan and heat.  You will need the pan to be quite hot before you add any batter.
7. Once the pan is hot, pour in some of the batter mixture, moving the pan so you get a thin even layer of batter over the base of the pan.
8. Watch the pancake and when golden, turn over and cook the other side.

Tip: If the pancake breaks apart when you try to move it then it has probably not been cooked long enough. Leave it a little longer and use a spatula to ease the edges away from the pan.

Serving suggestions

The traditional lemon and sugar is always a favourite.  As an alternative why not try filling your pancakes with:

  • Stewed apples, served warm with ice-cream. 
  • Bananas and cream.
  • Chocolate sauce and ice cream.
  • Warmed raspberry or strawberry jam.
