You can make soft and fluffy gluten-free pancakes – and if you want even dairy-free – simply by using rice flour. Topped with maple syrup and fresh fruit, they’re perfect for a leisurely weekend breakfast when time isn’t rushing us. These gluten-free pancakes are very similar to their traditional counterparts, making them a crowd-pleaser for everyone, whether dealing with gluten intolerance or not.
Crafting these gluten-free pancakes is a breeze and quite speedy. Plus, you can whip up the batter the night before, storing it in the fridge. This way, come morning, all you need to do is cook the pancakes and personalize them to your liking. If you’re navigating both gluten and lactose intolerance, fear not: swap out cow’s milk for a vegetal alternative (soy, rice, almond or coconut milk), and bid farewell to butter, choosing sunflower seed oil both in the batter and for cooking.

If you realize you’ve added too much, drain some, otherwise, the pancakes won’t adhere well to the pan. Pour about two tablespoons of batter into the center of the pan, spreading the mixture to form a disk about 3 inches in diameter.
How to store
As mentioned, if you don’t have time in the morning to prepare the batter, you can make it the day before and store it in a glass jar in the refrigerator. Cooked pancakes can be stored in the refrigerator for a couple of days, but they will naturally lose some of their freshness over time.
Tips and variations
Maple syrup is the most classic topping for typical American pancakes, but if you don’t have it, you can also garnish gluten-free pancakes in other ways: honey, jam, Nutella, caramel sauce, chocolate topping, whipped cream… If you want to prepare a breakfast in perfect American style, accompany these sweet elements with some crispy bacon slices!
