- Rice flour – white rice flour. If you cannot find it in your flour section, it should be in the gluten-free aisle.
- Butter – I use unsalted butter for this recipe.
- Baking powder – use any of your favorite brands.
- Vanilla extract – its nice to have that hint of vanilla in these rice flour pancakes.
- Salt – you might need to skip this if you are using salted butter.
- Eggs – at room temperature.
- Sugar – regular white sugar would be fine since you would add it first and it will dissolve with the rest of the wet ingredients.
- Milk – full cream milk, if possible. But you can certainly replace it with other types of milk.
Start preparing your gluten-free pancakes by using a large mixing bowl and combine eggs, milk, vanilla extract, and melted butter (photo 1).
Use a whisk to mix, then add sugar.
Mix until sugar has completely dissolved.
Add rice flour, salt, and baking powder (photo 2).
Continue whisking to combine until you get a smooth batter and there are no lumps.
Place your pan over medium heat, and brush it with some butter to prepare for the pancakes.
When your pan is ready, pour a quarter of a cup of the pancake batter in the center of the pan (photo 3).
Once you see (A LOT OF) bubbles popping in the pancake, flip it to cook the other side. This generally takes no more than two minutes (photo 4).
Cook for about a minute and a half, then transfer the pancake to a plate.
Repeat until you have used up all the batter.
Your fluffy rice flour pancakes are now ready for serving!
- Make sure the melted butter is not hot, especially if you pour it directly on the eggs, before mixing everything.
- There is no need to strain all the dry ingredients. White rice flour’s texture is so fine that I rarely have problems with lumps in the batter.
- Skip the salt if you are using salted butter. I always use unsalted butter; hence I added salt separately.
Yes — cover and refrigerate it for a couple of hours, but not overnight.
From experience, I noticed that these rice flour pancakes don’t turn out so good when I’ve kept the batter for more than two hours.
Make sure they’re no longer warm, then wrap them tightly before storing them in the freezer.
I normally use a microwave to warm them up, because that’s what I’ve got at home. But if you have a toaster, that’s even better!
