Allow the oil to heat up in the pan and the pour out the already hot oil into a little bowl or container ( you are still going to need this oil).

Tips

Mixing

First, combine dry ingredients thoroughly, breaking up lumps either by sifting them together or by stirring them well with a whisk.
Mix dry and wet ingredients in separate bowls, then gradually add wet ingredients to the dry while mixing with a fork or whisk.
Do NOT overmix your pancake batter, as it can make your pancakes rubbery.

Cooking

Use a nonstick frying pan, lightly greased with a little oil or butter.
Make sure your pan is hot. Test it by sprinkling in a few drops of water – if they sizzle then it’s ready.

Flipping

When the pancake edges turn golden brown and come away from the pan, it’s ready to flip.
Shake the pan to loosen the pancake, then flip it in one swift movement.

Serving

stack cooked pancakes between greaseproof paper to keep them warm. that way you can serve more people at once.

 

Finally you could alternatively use Gluten free flour and baking powder if you so desire.
