Buttermilk Rice Pancakes

With the weather being so cold lately and dealing with a lot of snow, I have been craving pancakes a lot lately. Snowy weather to me is pancake weather when it comes to breakfast. I have tinkered with several pancake recipes before hitting success with this one. Until now I never was able to make decent gluten free pancakes without a gluten free pancake mix. The flours I used for these pancakes I got from an Asian store near my house for about $1 per pound. Bob’s Red Mill also makes these flours as well as xanthan gum, which I used in these pancakes and use in most of my baked goods to help hold them together. These pancakes are great smaller or larger, but I prefer them larger since my mom always made hers larger and that is what I am used to with homemade pancakes.

Buttermilk Rice Pancakes – Makes 4 large pancakes or 8 regular sized pancakes (serves 2 to 3 people)

Ingredients:

  • ½  cup of rice flour
  • ½ cup of sweet rice flour
  • 2 teaspoons of sugar or sweetener (splenda and stevia will work in place of the sugar)
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of xanthan gum
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup of buttermilk (if you don’t have buttermilk, simply add a teaspoon of vinegar or lemon juice to a cup of milk and leave it sit for a minute. Then stir milk and use as buttermilk).
  • 2 teaspoons of canola oil
  • Cooking spray or canola oil for cooking pancakes

Directions:

  1. Mix rice flour, sweet rice flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and xanthan gum together in a large bowl.
  2. Mix in buttermilk until the pancake mixture is smooth.
  3. Mix canola oil, and egg together in a small bowl.
  4. Add in the mixture from the small bowl into the large bowl and mix until everything is completely mixed together.
  5. Add a little oil or cooking spray to the griddle and cook pancakes one by one on medium heat for 3-5 minutes per pancake, turning once halfway through. Watch them carefully, they cook quickly and don’t flip them too much. They will end up flatter if you do.
  6. Serve and enjoy!
