gluten free sunday morning pancakes – we’re on Cloud 9

These pancakes are lightly sweetened with just a hint of a crust on the outside. They’re also easy to make so make lots ’cause you can freeze them. Try one thawed in the toaster with peanut butter or your favorite jam for a quick weekday breakfast.

Sunday Morning GF PancakesAny all purpose gf flour will work for these gluten free pancakes, but we like to use Cloud 9 – made in New Westminster, British Columbia and found at our local Costco. Made with Cloud 9 flour, these pancakes are high in fibre and protein and make a great meal Sunday morning or Tuesday night.

What you’ll need:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose GF flour

TIP: We use Cloud 9, but your favorite all purpose GF flour will do. If it does not include xanthan gum, you will need to add 1/2 teaspoon to the batter to keep your pancakes from crumbling.

3 1/2 teaspoons GF baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon white sugar

1 1/2 cups milk

TIP: GF Flours are all different. 1 and 1/2 cups works well with Cloud 9 but if you are using a lighter flour mix (e.g. Bob’s Red Mill or Cup 4 Cup) you may need less. Start with 1 cup milk and add by the tablespoon until you get the right consistency. The batter should be thick and airy.

1 egg

3 tablespoons melted butter

What you’ll do:

Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Add milk. egg, and butter and mix until smooth.

Heat griddle to 350°. Pour or scoop batter onto the griddle using about 1/3 cup per pancake.

TIP: This batter is thick. If you want your pancakes to look like the regular glutenous ones, flatten them out with the back of a metal spoon.

Bake 3 minutes per side until golden brown.

Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet and hold in a 170° oven while you make the remainder, trying not to overlap them.

TIP: Freeze your leftover pancakes in a freezer bag with parchment in between. These can be removed individually and toasted for a quick workday morning breakfast. Great with peanut butter! Or you can wrap them in tinfoil and “plump” them up in a 350° oven for 5 – 10 minutes. They will emerge as fresh and hot as the day you made them. Thawing in the microwave is not recommended.

  5. I was at Costco the other day so I picked up some Cloud 9. Eek the calories lol! It’s also heavier than I’m used to so I have to learn adjustments. I think it’ll be great mixed with other flours, though it does require more fat, rather than applesauce, to gain a great texture. The price at Costco is great for the amount. Gluten-free is a whole new learning curve lol.

    • Gluten free is definitely a learning curve! I’ve talked to the person who developed Cloud 9 flour and she developed it to be a 1 to 1 replacement for wheat flour. For most things, it works quite well – especially items like cookies or heavier cakes. Pie crusts made with it are good too, although the buckwheat specks look a little strange. For a lighter item like a chiffon I’d make my own blend or you could try cutting the Cloud 9 with some corn starch. I’ve never done a lot of cooking with applesauce but I’m always open to ways to cut calories and fat! Let me know how it goes!

  9. Thank you for checking out my blog! I really love the look and feel of your blog, and I can’t wait to try some of your recipes. These pancakes will be the first! I don’t think we have Cloud 9 flour in the states. My Costco definitely doesn’t have it!

    • I haven’t tried protein powder yet, but I am planing on it soon. Hope this recipe works out for you. If you aren’t using Cloud 9 flour, I would try adding 1 cup of milk and then a bit more at a time until you get the consistency you want. Let us know how it goes! And thanks for the kind words.

    • Hi Lori. Yes, it’s a mix that you can use to replace regular flour in many of your recipes and the taste is pretty comparable to regular wheat flour. It works particularly well in ‘heavier’ items like cakes or pancakes and cookies.

  10. Hello, I am attmepting to make batter bread using the Cloud 9 cup for cup gluten free flour. To date, I have managed to make a few bricks but no edible loafs. I called the Cloud 9 bakery and the staff were very helpful with advice, but I still haven’t had any success. Do you have any recipes or advice for Cloud 9 cup for cup and bread? Thanks in advance.

    • Not really. Cloud 9 is very heavy and I haven’t had much luck with it for bread either. You could try mixing it with something light like tapioca flour and adding some whey protein to help the yeast. The best all-purpose flour we have found for bread is Cup 4 Cup and I have heard that Kinnikinnick all purpose makes good bread. Best of luck.

    • Hi Amy. I don’t have a photo on hand, but I can say that if you used Cloud 9 gf flour, your pancake batter should be perfect. You can smooth out the cakes on the griddle to make them thinner and more ordinary looking. If you are using another flour, you might want to cook a test pancake and see how it turns out and then add more liquid if needed. Hope that helps.

      • I did use cloud 9 and it was like cookie dough – it was insanely thick. I probably could have shaped it into pancake shapes with my hands.

        I do live at altitude in a very dry climate so I have had to add more liquid to recipes in the past.

      • Wow! That is thick. They are typically the thickness (not the smoothness) of, say, icing. Did you add more liquid? Did they turn out for you?

  12. I did add more liquid – probably another cup! They were tasty but still quite heavy. Will need to make some more adjustments for the next time!

  13. I cant tell you how much relief it is to be able to make gluten free pancakes with Cloud 9 flour. Lets say I have had a hard time working with this flour. The pancake recipe turned out amazing! Husband loves it and I find it delicious. This recipe is totally a keeper. Thank you!!!
