    Is it white or brown rice flour for the pancakes. Can I prepare the batter the night before and leave in fridge. Thx. Iris

      You can use either white or brown rice flour – whatever your preference is. The batter should store just fine overnight in the fridge. The baking powder in the batter works as the leavener and since it is double acting, it will still help the batter to rise once it hits the hot pan. The baking soda – while it is a leavener, reacts as soon as the batter becomes moistened and the CO2 that is created is quickly lost. However, in this case the baking soda is used for its browning and crisping properties. The only thing is that if the batter is very thick come the next morning, try loosening it with a bit more milk/water.

    Can you use an egg substitute as my grandson is allergic to eggs, dairy, peanuts and wheat?
