These sorghum pancakes have crisp, lacy edges and perfect golden brown color. Made with sorghum flour, real buttermilk, real vanilla, and butter, they're as good as any traditional pancake—I think they're even better, and they're totally gluten free!
Whisk together the dry mix ingredients in a large mixing bowl and make a well in the center. Place a nonstick skillet on a burner and preheat it over medium low heat while you continue to make the wet mix.
Combine all the wet mix ingredients in another mixing bowl and whisk until thoroughly combined. It may look curdled or slightly chunky; that's normal.
Test the pan by flicking in a few drops of water. If they immediately sizzle, the pan is ready. Pour the wet mix into the well of the dry mix and whisk until well combined. The batter should be easily pourable; if it is too thick, add 1/4 cup of water and whisk it into the batter thoroughly.
Add batter to the pan approximately 1/4 cup at a time. Cook each pancake on one side until the bubbles that appear in the batter burst and stay open, then flip to cook on the other side until the pancake puffs up in the middle. Repeat with the rest of the batter. Note: the pan may start to get too hot as it continues to heat. If pancakes are over-browning before they cook through, lower the heat slightly.
Remove cooked pancakes to a plate and cover to keep warm, or place in a warm oven until all pancakes are cooked. Serve immediately.
