On a strictly gluten-free diet it can be so hard to find good food, especially all the pre-made gluten-free stuff from the grocery store. I’ve tried a few of the gluten-free pancake mixes which have all left me disappointed.

They were either dry, had really grainy texture or didn’t have a flavor that resembled the traditional pancakes I’ve always been used to. These are soft and velvety and they taste just like a traditional buttermilk (white flour) pancake.

If you are on a gluten-free diet, don’t lose this recipe! It will probably become a regular for you. Seriously so good!
