There are loads of pancake recipes on the internet and cookbooks but this is our tired and much loved recipe which is simple, the ingredients you need are;
4 free range eggs
400mls semi-skimmed milk (or dairy free alternative)
150ml of water
220g gluten free plain flour
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum (in the freeform aisle in shops)
A pinch of salt (optional)
Butter (or free from alternative for cooking)
Topping choice of whatever you fancy!
Measure out all the ingredients, combine to flour, xanthan gum and salt and sieve into a large bowl, add your eggs and start whisking either using a hand whisk or electric whisk, slowly add small amounts of the milk and water (a little at a time) and keep whisking, gently, it may be lumpy but everything will be mixed together so don't worry, take it slowly as to not get mixture everywhere and you will end up with a mixture which has the consistency of single cream. Get your frying pan at the ready (we like to keep them warm in the oven as we make them, just use a baking tray, some pieces of greaseproof paper and keep stacking them up until you run out of mixture), depending on the size of your pan will affect the amount of mixture you need...I think we have all made pancakes? Do you want me to guide you how to cook them? To be honest other than adding some of your butter or dairy free alternative to a hot pan until its just sizzling, adding enough mixture to the pan after you have tilted the pan around so evenly covered, once coloured be brave to have a go flipping (here comes the health & safety warning, be careful, supervise children and over eager adults) or use a spatula to turn them and once done either add to the oven stack or serve with a topping of your choice, I hope this is enough detail? I don't want to teach you guys how to suck eggs but if not sure just nip onto the BBC GoodFood website and read the technique!
