We provide the best ingredients for the best pancakes. How many of them subsequently get stuck to the ceiling, we can’t say – but we do know that the ones that make it to your plate couldn’t be more delicious, wholesome or nutritious. Here’s just what we can offer you this Pancake Day.
Wholemeal flour will work perfectly well, either on its own or blended with white. If you’re in the mood for experimenting, you might like to try our barley flour, spelt flour, teff flour, kamut flour, brown rice flour, chestnut flour, coconut flour, einkorn flour, quinoa flour, rye flour or tapioca flour!
If you’re avoiding gluten, you can simply use gluten-free flour in a standard recipe. This will generally give a lighter pancake. To make things super-easy, take a look at our four ‘pancake specials’: ready-to-go mixes for gluten-free pancakes.
If you’re mixing your own gluten-free pancakes, you might be particularly interested in our buckwheat flour, brown rice flour, pea flour, maize flour and teff flour. And, of course, you can make pancakes from non-floury ingredients altogether, such as bananas, pumpkins, or our silken tofu.
Starches and gums and raising agents
For home-mixed gluten-free pancakes, you’ll generally need a range of starches and gums. We’ve got, among others:
- Potato starch
- Tapioca starch
- Gluten-free baking powder
- Xanthan gum
- Guar gum
- Cream of tartar
Dairy milk can be replaced by other kinds of milk in pancakes. Check out our full range of non-dairy milk, which includes sheep’s milk, coconut milk, almond milk, hazelnut milk, rice milk, quinoa milk, hemp milk, oat milk and soya milk.
If you’re not using egg, you might be interested in one of these egg replacers:
We stock a great range of cold-pressed organic oils. Some of these give their own flavour to a pancake – like one of our stronger coconut oils, or a nut oil. Others are more neutral, such as olive oil, rapeseed oil or sunflower oil.
And toppings? For those, you’ll need tomorrow’s blog: Flippin’ great pancake toppings.
