Successful Gluten-Free Baking | Pancake In A Mug

I have never met anyone that didn’t LOVE a plate of fresh, hot, stacked pancakes oozing with semi-melted butter and almost drowning with pure maple syrup.  Am I right?  Sometimes when I crave pancakes, it is just me at home and I don’t want to make a big batch.  Or I feel like a quick snack or breakfast and just want something simple.

You may be saying to yourself, “But Denise, when you are gluten free, most of the time you don’t just throw a few ingredients together and get a perfect result.”  While this is true, the more you cook and bake gluten-free, the easier it will become for you to just “know” what kind and how much of an ingredient need to go into a recipe.  This single-serve pancake is just the thing to help you practice.

This recipe is SUPER SIMPLE and hard to mess up.  It doesn’t require oil, eggs or egg substitutes, sugar or baking powder.  The best part is you just mix it up and throw it in the microwave and then you have hot cup of pancake goodness!  So, go get your favorite coffee cup and make your self a pancake.



In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and one scoop of vanilla protein powder and one scoop of fiber.  If  you don’t have have the protein powder, you can just use more flour.  The protein powder gives this recipe LOTS of  protein, vitamins and minerals.  If you don’t have the fiber powder you can just leave it out, but it is VERY beneficial to your colon health.

Spray your favorite coffee cup with some non-stick spray.  Add the flour mixture.  Then add the apple cider vinegar, water and maple syrup.  If you can get it, use 100% PURE maple syrup, not that flavored corn syrup and chemical filled stuff that looks like maple syrup.  Stir really well to combine and make a smooth batter.  The batter shouldn’t be too thin. or the pancake will be gummy.

Put the cup in the microwave and cook on high for one and a half minutes.  All microwaves cook at different times and heat levels so watch your cup to make sure it doesn’t boil over or burn.  When you spoon up your first bite, you should have a nice, soft fluffy texture.

You can top your pancake with anything you wish, fruit, butter, maple or chocolate syrup, jelly or jam.  Be creative and enjoy your breakfast!
