Buckwheat Pancakes

I like pancakes that are thick and fluffy, and these pancakes are just that.

3/4 cup buckwheat flour
1/4 cup sweet rice flour or tapioca flour
2 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. xanthan gum
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup rice milk
1 egg
2 tbsp. canola oil
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

Sift together the dry ingredients and make a well in the center. Combine the rice milk through the vanilla and add all at once to the dry ingredients. Stir until just moistened - do not overmix. Thin with a little rice milk if needed.

Pour batter by 1/3 cupfuls onto a hot, greased griddle. Flatten into rounds and cook for a couple of minutes until golden brown on the bottom, then flip and cook a couple minutes more (these pancakes won't form little air bubbles the way other pancakes do). Serve hot with fresh fruit and powdered sugar, jam, honey or maple syrup.
