  • 200 g gluten-free self-raising flour
  • 1.5 tsp gluten-free baking powder
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 300 ml milk (dairy free if necessary or lactose-free if low FODMAP)
  • 2 large eggs use egg replacers listed in the FAQ section if vegan
  • vegetable oil for frying


  • Put your gluten free self-raising flour, sugar into a large mixing bowl and mix together.
  • In a jug or smaller mixing bowl, add your eggs and milk and beat thoroughly.
  • Create a well in your flour bowl and add in your wet ingredients. Whisk until smooth and consistent.
  • Set your hob to a low-medium heat. Brush the pan with a light coating of oil and allow to heat - test if it's ready by spooning in one small drip of pancake batter; if it sizzles slightly, then it's ready.
  • Ladle in your pancake batter. I used a 1/4 measuring cup to do this as it's the perfect amount of batter for 1 pancake and ensures they all come out the exact same size.
  • Allow to cook until the side facing up looks like you could flip it without it splattering everywhere! This should take about 1-2 minutes at a low heat. If it's browning on the underside before the top is looking ready to flip, then lower your heat.
  • Flip it over and cook for a further 30 seconds or so and transfer to a small plate. Repeat until all the batter is used, brushing the pan with oil in between each pancake.
  • Serve up with maple syrup and bacon, Nutella, fresh berries or drizzle with your favourite dessert sauces. Enjoy!
