Gluten-free baking mix is the key to quick gluten-free baking. We tested our pancake recipes with a variety of baking mixes and found that each baking mix produced its own results. Some of the mixes were more finely textured, and some were coarser, which affected both the thickness of the batter and the texture. Our advice: Use the brand you prefer. If you’re not sure, experiment with a few to find the texture and flavor that appeal to your tastes.
