Gluten Free Pancake Mix Review

This week I’m reviewing two gluten-free pancake mixes that contain sorghum flour. Both of them were very good, and they each had a unique flavor and appeal.

Hodgson Mills Gluten Free Pancake Mix is a whole grain, hearty mix with flax seeds.

I added fresh Texas blueberries to make these pancakes extra healthy and just plain yummy.

I used buttermilk and the batter came out very thick. I had to use a spoon to spread the batter out on the grill so they would be thin enough to cook completely inside. I think I would have liked them better if I had added a bit more milk to the thin out the batter.

The Hodgson Mill batter was a bit thick – I should have added a little more milk.

If the batter is thick, be sure to spread it out with a spoon on the griddle so the pancakes will not be to tall and cook well in the middle.

The other day I found this new gluten-free pancake mix I had never seen before – Kerbey Lane Cafe Gingerbread Pancake Mix.

Kerbey Lane Cafe has several locations in the Austin, TX area. I think they’re packaging has a fun design.

The package was really cute and when I turned it over to read the ingredients I was amazed to see sorghum flour was the first ingredient!

Sorghum flour is listed as the first ingredient.

They also had a fun slogan on the side:

The side of the Kerbey pancake mix box has the slogan Peace Through Pancakes and graphic of flying pancakes above their allergen information.

Peace Through Pancakes – I’m all for that! Love those flying pancakes.

So, I HAD to try this, right?

Kerbey Lane Cafe is actually a small restaurant chain in Austin, TX that also produces packaged products for retail. I found this mix at Drug Emporium. You can buy them online, too. They have regular and gluten-free mixes. The gluten-free ones are manufactured in a dedicated facility, according to the package, so that made me feel safe trying the product.

The Kerbey Lane mix has everything in it, so all you have to add are eggs and water.

The pancakes looked and smelled like soft gingerbread cookies while they were cooking.

And they tasted as good as they smelled!

I added a small amount of butter and maple syrup, but these might also be good with fruit and whipped cream. The texture was just like I remember real pancakes being.

I would definitely recommend either one of these mixes to my celiac friends.

Remember: Peace Through Pancakes!
