I bake scotch pancakes as with wheat flour as with gluten free flour. The pictures shown gluten free pancakes.

Scotch pancakes came out very lush due to a very thick batter. It falls from the spoon into the pan and don’t spread out.

    Hello! I’m also confused on the vanilla sugar. We don’t have packets sold in stores here. Is it okay to use regular sugar with vanilla extract or paste? If so, how much would you recommend (how vanilla-y is vanilla sugar)?

    Hi 🙂
    What is vanilla sugar?

  5. Iryna says:

    Thank you for your comment.
    Vanilla sugar I put in pancakes just for flavor, so you can not put it or use 0,5 – 1 tsp vanilla extract.

    Hi ))
    Vanilla sugar is sugar with vanilla extract. I put it in pancakes just for flavor. You can not use it or use vanilla extract instead of it.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to translate! For folks confused on vanilla sugar, one way to make it is to put a vanilla bean or two into a canister of sugar. The flavor infuses the sugar. Since this ingredient is mostly a flavoring agent, and the sugar isn’t a huge proportion if the final cake, I would simply add a little more sugar, rounding to 2 tbsp. and use 1/2 to 1 tsp vanilla, depending on your preference. These changes shouldn’t hurt that beautiful fluffiness.

    I often make pancakes without vanilla sugar and they are still delicious. And very thick batter will help them become fluffy, so you can add more flour if necessary.

    Thank you. I could only find Vanilla Sugar in a 150g packet. This recipe is delicious, thank you for translating it. Now I only have to get them looking as perfectly round as yours turn out

  12. Iryna says:

    I do not usually get such round pancakes, for photos I chose the most beautiful ))))

  13. Iryna says:

    Due to an allergy to cow’s milk, I usually put in pancakes, coconut rice milk, and they get a light scent of coconut. Delicious )))

  14. I’m really getting into this veggie life.
