Finally! Great Gluten Free Pancakes

So, I apologize now for the lack of picture, but these buttermilk pancakes were so good that they were gone before I could get a camera out. But I wanted to post the recipe anyway. I've never been a great pancake baker. I like pancakes, but they can be really finicky to make. I finally got a griddle with those little pancake forms to pour my wimpy GF pancake batter into, but with this recipe, I could actually pour my own. I've also had a lot of trouble with good pancakes falling flat on me, these held firm. My sister sent me a cookbook of recipes compiled by other members of her church, and it's been a great base for me to modify recipes. I just haven't been good at taking pictures, or sharing the recipes. So, here's my first.

These buttermilk pancakes made enough for my little family of four to be satisfied (8-10 pancakes).

1 cup GF mix
2 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 egg
1 1/2 Tbsp oil
1 cup buttermilk

Mix the dry ingredients in a 1-quart bowl with a spout (I always use my Pyrex measuring bowl for such things, or my Pampered Chef batter bowl). Then, add the eggs, oil and buttermilk, mix with a fork until everything is incorporated. Pour on a griddle heated to medium. These are really excellent, I hope you enjoy them, too!

I tried these on Christmas day and I don't know what I did wrong but they didn't cook through no matter how long I left them on the griddle. I had to use an egg replacer powder because I'm also egg white allergic but that's all I did differently. I really wanted to enjoy pancakes again too. Sigh

I'm so sorry those didn't work out. I'm not sure what to tell you to try instead. I hope that you can find a different recipe and have pancakes again. Sorry!
