Gluten free and want to enjoy pancake day? Don’t worry I’ve got you covered! My pancake recipe is super simple and makes the fluffiest/thickest pancakes that I’m sure, gluten free or not you’ll be a fan!

I paired my pancake stack with a blueberry compote and maple syrup; however the toppings are endless… chocolate spread, lemon and sugar, banana, honey, peanut butter.

Kitchen tools needed: Non-stick frying pan, mixing bowl

Prep: 10 mins 

Cook: 15 minutes 

Difficulty Easy 


Around 4-5 thick pancakes


  • 120g Gluten free plain flour – sifted
  • 1 Tsp baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp caster sugar
  • 1Tsp ground Cinnamon - Cole & Mason Saunderton Spice Storage
  • ¼ Tsp xanthan gum
  • Pinch salt
  • 2 Medium eggs
  • 60ml Semi skimmed milk

Blueberry Compote

  • 80g Blueberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 Tbsp water
  • 1 Tsp maple syrup

Method Pancakes

  1. In a large bowl mix the flour, baking powder, caster sugar, ground cinnamon, xanthan gum and salt.
  2. Make a well in the centre of the mixture, add both eggs with a little milk and whisk, gradually adding in the remainder milk until the batter is smooth.
  3. Heat one teaspoon of coconut oil (or cooking oil/butter of choice) to a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Once hot drop two to three rounds of batter (I used a small frying pan and cook the pancakes one at a time). Once the pancake begins to bubble, flip it over and cook the other side until both sides are golden brown.
  4. Continue until the batter is gone. Stack the pancakes, topping with blueberry compote and maple syrup or toppings of choice.

Method Blueberry Compote

  1. In a small saucepan add all ingredients, simmer over a medium heat for around 8 minutes. Use the back of a wooden spoon to squash several softened blueberries.
  2. Take off the heat, leave to cool and thicken.

Top Tips:

  • Whilst you wait for your pancake stack to cook, keep the remainder warm by stacking and topping with foil.
  • Dairy free? No problem, swap to milk of preference.
