Ultimate Bread Pudding Pancakes

The Ultimate Gluten-Free Bread Pudding Pancake Recipe

Gluten-Free Foodee
Pancakes can be tricky when you are gluten-free. Getting that traditional pancake flavour and texture is hard to achieve, however, when it comes to alternatives to traditional pancakes, this recipe takes the cake. Using a loaf of gluten-free bread soaked in milk gives these pancakes the bread pudding name, but definately helps to make them delicsious.

  • 400 g Gluten-Free White Bread brioche style works well
  • Cups + 2% Milk or non-dairy alternative milk
  • Cups Gluten-Free Flour
  • ¼ Cup White Sugar
  • Tbsp Baking Powder
  • ¼ Tsp Salt
  • 1 Tsp Vegetable Oil
  • 3 Eggs, beaten
  • 3 Tsp Vailla
  • ¼ Tsp Cinnamon optional


  • Cut the bread into 1-inch cubes. Place the cubed bread in a bowl.
  • Pour one cup of milk over the bread with a spatula, gently.
  • After five minutes check the bread and add another half cup of milk.
    Tip: You do not want the bread to be softened, but you don’t want it to be swimming in the milk either.
  • If your bread is super absorbent or seems very dry, you can add another ½ c of milk.
  • While the bread is soaking, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a small bowl.
  • Add the flour mixture to the soaked bread and gently fold in, until just incorporated.
  • In the bowl that the flour was in, beat together eggs, oil, and vanilla until combined.
  • Add the egg mixture to the bread and flour mixture. Mix to combine.
  • Let batter rest 15-30 minutes.
  • Melt the butter, butter alternative, or cooking spray in a skillet over medium heat.
  • Drop about 1/3 cup of the batter per pancake, into the skillet and cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side, over medium heat.
    Tip: These do not bubble like traditional pancakes, so wait until the edges are brown, and you can get a spatula under them, and they are firm enough to flip.
  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, so when the pancakes are cooked, they can be placed on the cookie sheet and can be kept warm in the oven, until served.
  • Serve warm with your favourite pure maple syrup.


Another tip: you could use cinnamon raisin bread for an even more decadent and flavourful twist.
