  • 125g gluten-free plain flour (we used Doves Farm)

    One of the most widely used ingredients, milk is often referred to as a 'complete' food…

  • sunflower or rice bran oil, for frying
  • orange segments and agave syrup, to serve
    Agave syrup

    Agave syrup

    Agave syrup (also known as agave nectar) is a naturally occurring sweetener similar in…


  1. Put the flour in a bowl and make a well in the centre. Pour in the Orgran egg replacer and a quarter of the milk.

  2. Use an electric whisk to thoroughly combine the mixture, then beat in another quarter of the milk. Once lump free, mix in the remaining milk. Leave to rest for 20 mins. Stir again before using.

  3. Heat a small non-stick frying pan with a splash of oil. When hot pour a small amount of the mixture into the pan and swirl around to coat the base – you want a thin layer. 

  4. Cook for a few mins until golden brown on the bottom, then turn over and cook until golden on the other side. Repeat until you have used all the mixture, stirring the mixture between pancakes and adding more oil to the frying pan as necessary.

  5. Serve with an orange wedge and a drizzle of agave syrup or filling of your choice. This mixture keeps for a few days if you store it covered in the fridge. Give it a good whisk before using.

Used almond milk, double up the quantities and made 4 savoury pancakes with Violife cheese and grilled mushrooms and 6 sweet pancakes with Vego hazelnut spread and Swedish ice cream. Had to add extra milk as batter was too thick. Delicious.

Absolutely delicious and super easy recipe. Even quicker and simpler to make and cook than non gluten-free pancakes. We scoffed them with honey for brunch!

Brilliant recipe pancakes go just like normal ones if not better. What I would say is definit,y add some kind of sweetener or flavour to the mix. I added vanilla, other wise the taste is a tad off. Other than that perfect recipe! Brilliant with strawberries and dairy free Nutella! :)

Thanks for your question. We haven't tested this but a flax seed egg should work well in this recipe.

Add half a tsp of vanilla extract and quarter tsp of almond essence to enhance the flavour - absolutely lovely!
