These gluten free sourdough pancakes are adapted from a recipe for easy sourdough pancakes that mom has been making for years. These were the pancakes we ate almost every weekend when I was a kid.
I have tried adapting these to gluten free several times over the last few years, but could not get it quite right until recently. Many of the ones I tried were good, but not what I remembered. Sometimes it takes awhile with gluten free cooking to get just what you want, but once you get the right results, it makes it so worth it.
The batter for these pancakes is a little thinner than your typical pancake batter. And they are not as light and fluffy as some pancakes, but that is how they are supposed to be. These are just like the ones my mom makes, but they are gluten free.
