Hi I want to make gluten-free so which flour to use
Person   ()
I will share the exact gluten free pancake recipe sometimes later. It is usually made with a mix of rice flour, cornmeal and some starch like potato starch or tapioca starch. For now just google and try some good recipe. Sorry for the inconvenience.

When is the milk used in this recipe? It is not mentioned.
Person   ()
Please add it after you beat the eggs.
Person   ()
shall I use wheat flour instead if all purpose flour
Person   ()
Wheat flour will make the pancakes denser. Pancakes are supposed to be spongy and soft which you can get with all purpose flour only. If you are looking for healthier options, try substituting half of the flour with wheat flour.
