By Jean McFadden Layton, Linda Larsen

You can easily make gluten-free pancakes from a pancake mix that you prepare ahead of time, adding eggs, milk, butter, and other ingredients as needed to prepare the final mixture. (Scroll down to see the Gluten-Free Pancake Mix recipe.)


Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 5 minutes

Yield: 8–10 pancakes

2 eggs

1 cup milk

2 tablespoons butter, melted

1 cup Pancake Mix (scroll down to see the recipe)

  1. In a small bowl, combine the eggs, milk, and butter and mix well.

  2. Put the Pancake Mix in a medium bowl, add the egg mixture, and beat until smooth.

  3. Heat a griddle over medium-high heat.

    Grease with a bit of unsalted butter or solid shortening.

  4. Drop the batter, by 1/4 cup portions, onto the griddle. Cook until bubbles form on the surface and the edges look dry, about 3 to 4 minutes. Turn with a spatula and cook for 1 to 2 minutes on the second side until brown. Serve immediately.

You can dress up these Pancakes with the addition of spices or cocoa powder. Add a teaspoon of cinnamon or a teaspoon of apple pie spice to the basic mix. You can also drop miniature chocolate chips or blueberries onto the pancakes when they’re ready to be flipped on the griddle.
