“Oh, lovely Sunday, you’re my favourite of all days, please give me gluten-free sourdough pancakes!”
As Sundays are my favourites, I tend to celebrate them with a big brunch. A highlight are my gluten-free sourdough pancakes, which taste just like “real” American pancakes.
I love to prepare a big brunch, because I also celebrate life & everything I am currently happy for. I tend to take some time for myself. My Sunday brunch is an entirely stress-free zone and I avoid looking at my phone, the laptop or anything else. It’s just me, my pancakes & some music.
A lot of you are probably thinking: “Why more breakfast recipes?!”. Well, to be honest, I only recently made these pancakes for the first time and they’re the best gluten-free pancakes I’ve ever met. Now, for me, this was reason enough to post them. Also, a couple of days ago, it was #worldpancakeday – so this is my contribution. Without further ado: The Recipe! ⬇️⬇️
Fluffy Gluten-free Sourdough Pancakes
- 200 g sourdough here: brown rice sourdough
- 120 g coconut milk
- 2 tbsp coconut sugar or4 tbsp maple syrup
- 100 g brown rice flour
- 100 g ground almonds / almond flour
- 2 tbsp coconut oil + some more for frying
- 2 eggs
- 4 tsp baking powder
- 1 tbsp cinnamon
- pinch salt
- Before you do anything else today, start mixing the dough as it has to rest for 30 minutes.
- To start the pancakes, mix sugar / maple syrup, eggs & butter until creamy.
- Next, add the remaining ingredients, one at a time and mix until everything is fully incorporated. It should be a thick dough, just like usual pancake dough. If it's a little too thick, you might add some more milk.
- Before we continue, let the dough rest for roughly 30 minutes. Ideally to prepare the table, get dressed, have a shower or whatever else is part of your morning-routine. 🙂
- Now, after 30 minutes, place a pan on medium heat and add some coconut oil, once hot. Add pancake dough, one at a time & fry for roughly 2 minutes on each side.
- Place finished pancakes on a plate & store in an oven on 50 degrees until all of the pancakes are finished.
- Serve with fresh fruits, some seeds, cacao nibs & maple syrup. If you're feeling creative, you might even wanna add some apple puree* - you've got 30 minutes resting time you could use to make some. 🙂 (I always prepare some ahead of time and have it stored in the freezer / fridge). You might also add some whipped cream (vegan or not) or clotted cream.
For overnight sourdough pancakes
- Mix Sourdough with 100g rice flour & 100g water and let it rest overnight. Proceed with the rest as above.
Now, I’m obviously wondering, what your favourite pancake recipes are. So please don’t hesitate and tell me; just use the “comment” space below. 🙂 Also, please comment below, if you have any further questions or if you made these pancakes and you took a picture. I’d love to see your results.
For all those, disappointed, because this is not a French Crepes recipe: Don’t worry. There’ll be one very soon! 🙂
Happy Cooking & until next week,
