Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Pancake Mix Recipe
You can use the pancake mix to make light and fluffy pancakes…and waffles! We’ll be taking a look at two variants of this recipe so you can learn how to make both with this versatile baking mix.
For the pancakes, the ingredients you’ll need are:
- 3/4 cup of milk
- one egg
- 1 tablespoon of butter or oil (melted)
- 1 cup gluten-free pancake mix
Here’s the step-by-step guide to making 8 perfect fluffy pancakes:
- Preheat a skillet to medium to high heat
- Add the milk, egg, and butter/oil to a bowl and mix. Once combined, add the pancake mix and whisk until you have a smooth consistency
- Once the skillet is hot, pour 1/4 of a cup of batter mix onto the skillet. Cook for around 3 minutes, it should be bubbly. Flip and then cook for a further 2 minutes on the other side. Serve immediately
For the waffles, the ingredients are slightly different. You’ll need:
- 1 Egg
- 2 tablespoons of butter or oil (melted)
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup of gluten-free pancake mix
Once you have the ingredients, follow these instructions:
- Preheat your waffle iron as you usually would
- Add the milk and butter/oil to a bowl and mix. Gradually add the milk. Then add the pancake mix and combine until a smooth consistency is reached. Add more milk if necessary
- Pour the batter onto the waffle iron and cook for around 7-10 minutes
You can add any toppings to the pancakes or waffles to make them your own!
Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Flour Pancakes Recipe
If you’re wanting extra fluffy pancakes, you may prefer to make your pancakes from scratch. Bob’s Red Mill has an incredible gluten-free flour that you can use to make these pancakes. For pancakes from scratch, the ingredients you’ll need are:
- 1-1/3 cups of gluten-free all-purpose baking flour
- 1 teaspoon of baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt
- 2 beaten eggs
- 1/2 cup of milk (you may need more)
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
Follow this easy recipe to make your pancakes:
- Preheat a griddle to a medium/medium-high heat (between 350-375F)
- In a bowl, add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix well
- In a separate bowl, mix the eggs, milk, and oil and combine well
- Stir the wet mix into the dry mix gradually until you have a smooth consistency
- Using around 1/3 of a cup of pancake batter, pour onto the hot griddle. When it bubbles, it’s ready to flip (usually around 3 minutes). Flip and cook for a further 3-4 minutes
- Serve immediately with your toppings of choice. And enjoy!
How To Thicken Pancake Mix
If your pancake mix doesn’t have the required consistency and you’ve already used up your batter mix, try not to worry, there are lots of things you can do to salvage it!
- Add more flour. The easiest way to thicken your batter is to add flour. Of course, make sure that you’re adding gluten-free flour. Flour is the perfect thickening agent but be careful not to add too much. You don’t want your pancakes to have a grainy texture!
- Add dry ingredients. Adding ingredients such as gluten-free oats or cornmeal is also a quick way to thicken your batter, however, the texture will definitely not be smooth! Although it does make for much healthier pancakes.
- Buttermilk powder. Much like flour, buttermilk powder is great at thickening. You may need to add more baking powder to ensure you get enough rise from your pancakes
- Eggs. Eggs are a great way to thicken the batter. You’ll definitely not have dry pancakes if you add an egg to your batter mix. However, the taste of egg may become quite overpowering, so if you’re not a lover of eggs, this may not be the best option
- Pancake Mix. That’s right – one of the easiest ways to thicken your mix is to add more of your dry pancake mix to the batter, like the Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free pancake mix.
I hope this article has helped you to become more familiar with Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free pancake mix and the incredible pancakes you make when following the recipes we’ve looked at today. It may take a while to perfect the fluffy pancake, but at least you can enjoy lots of pancakes while you practice your skills – it’s a win/win really!
