Oven Baked Gluten-Free Sourdough Pancakes

Oven Baked Pancakes

One of my readers wrote to me about how she wanted a less oily pancake than what came out of the skillet. She tried baking them in the oven and had great results. I finally tried it and am happy to say it's an excellent option! The finished pancakes are much less oily and cook through really well. I can bake a whole tray in a lot less time than it takes to bake the same amount in a skillet or a stove top griddle.
I tried a few thicknesses of batter: thin, medium and thick. To thin out the batter I added a little water to the assembled batter. Try different thicknesses to see which you prefer.

Directions:

  • Use the recipe from my previous post with your choice of starter and last feeding flour.
  • Line a baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Spoon or scoop batter onto the paper.
  • Flatten into shape with the scoop or spoon.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 8-15 minutes.


I flipped them at about 8 minutes but I'm not convinced flipping is necessary.  The pancakes in these photos are 100% teff using a teff starter and more teff flour for the last feeding.

Other than the very, very small fraction of people that suffer from celiac disease, for whom gluten is essentially poison, I think gluten-free is a fad "diet" (way of eating) that's already passed it's sell-by date. It's another one of those "if you eat like this, you will get these benefits" fads that leads too many people down a blind alley of healthless healthfulness.

Eat these fat-free cookies, so people eat the whole box! Eat carb free, so people eat a whole pound of bacon and a dozen eggs!

That and I've yet to eat a gluten-free baked good that's better than its gluten-full variety. They almost always taste like cardboard.

Glad these don't!

(And I love mackeral).

Thomas,

Thanks for your brazen honesty! I am one of those people who will be off gluten for the rest of my life. I had been so sick for so long and when I was diagnosed and went off gluten I became a healthy person again with normal amounts of energy! A simple treatment for a complex and far-reaching disease. I was sorely disappointed after trying the gluten-free breads on the market especially since I had been a successful rye sourdough baker for a number of years. It was hard to give up my old fashioned black bread.But I did. (sniff)

I took it upon myself to try and create a gluten-free sourdough bread based on the rye technique, using only pure food ingredients. (conventional gluten-free has high sugar, high starch and chemicals) It took a while, one year, but I figured it out. Then I compiled it all into a book and self-published it. I'm working on my 2nd book, Gluten-Free Sourdough Baking Science.

And yes, the breads taste good!! My gluten consuming husband prefers my gluten-free sourdough because it's more substantial than most available gluten breads.

Thanks for your responses.

Best,

sharon
