This easy pancake recipe calls for mixing flour and water and letting it sit covered for several hours or overnight before cooking. The flour ferments and lightens thanks to the air bubbles, and the pancakes are surprisingly light and delicious. You can even make the pancakes gluten-free if you wish, by using a mixture of garbanzo flour and chia, buckwheat or brown rice flour. Of course, the texture will be different with whatever ingredients you use.
