Author Vicki Montague - the Free From Fairy


  • Half a jam jar of Free From Fairy plain or self raising gluten-free flour - depending upon whether you want crepe style or American style pancakes
  • 1 free range medium egg
  • Approx. half a jam jar dairy or dairy free milk
  • Sugar - optional
  • Coconut oil or butter for cooking


  • Place a frying pan on a medium heat to get hot
  • Half fill a clean dry jam jar with Free From Fairy gluten-free plain flour
  • Crack in the egg and top up with milk until 1 cm from the top of the jar
  • Screw the lid on TIGHTLY, turn the jar on its side and shake vigorously up and down and side to side
  • If flour gets stuck on the bottom of the jar, dislodge with a knife and shake again
  • Once the pan is very hot, add a knob of coconut oil or butter and leave to melt
  • Pour a little batter into the pan and swirl quickly to cover the base of the pan
  • Cook until the edges start to come away from the side of the pan, then flip and cook for around 1 minute more
  • Repeat with the remaining mixture
  • Heat the pan as before
  • Half fill the jam jar with self raising flour
  • Crack in the egg and add milk until the jar is 3/4 full
  • Put the lid on tightly, turn the jar on its side and shake up and down and side to side vigorously
