Light & Fluffy Coconut Milk Pancakes

Mmmmmmmmmmmmm nom nom nom........

Who likes pancakes?  (I do, I do!)  I mean, fluffy, lip-smacking pancakes, rather than the usual hard-tack sit-in-your-stomach-like-a-stone pancakes GF pancake mixes often provide?

Pancakes like....this!


Ooooh yeah.

I've been wishing to tackle making GF pancakes that reminded me of my Dad's Saturday morning pancakes for a LONG time.  I finally got around to trying a few recipes I'd found through pinterest.  With a few tweaks as I've experimented, this is what I've come up with as a product of my stubbornness determination!

*does a little jig*

Edit: See also my alternative fluffy pancake recipe that needs no milk or eggs and are just as scrumptious!

You'll Need:

- 1 & 1/2 cups sorghum flour*
- 1 cup brown rice flour*
- sprinkle of cinnamon and/or quarter-inch of a vanilla bean pod
- sprinkle of salt
- 1 & 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 2 eggs
- 2 tbsp honey
- 1 can 13.5 oz coconut milk (malk!)
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1/2 cup water

* I use Bob's Red Mill for the flours

To Start:
  • Mix all of the dry ingredients in a bowl.  
  • Add and mix the 2 eggs, olive oil, and honey.
  • Pour the milk in increments, mixing the batter in between pours (I usually add about a 1/4 cup at a time until the milk is gone).
  • Add the water using the same method as you did with the milk.  Batter should be a nice smooth and slightly runny consistency.
  • Get a griddle or skillet warmed, then add a spoonful of batter for each pancake.  
  • When you see air bubbles across the entire pancake, flip them over.  (Don't let them get overdone/hard). Pancakes should be a nice golden color.  The other side should finish in less than 30 seconds.  
Go crazy chowing down.  These will go like hotcakes (hah!).  ^_-
