Cauliflower Pancakes

Marion Dyess


I was looking for a way to re-create my great grandmothers without the carbs. If you are looking to have that same old world flavor but not all the carbs you will love this recipe . After watching how well the pizza came out I decided to give it a go and to just add a little bit of flour to keep the carbs down but still get the consistency of the pancake . I have done it both ways with gluten-free flour and with regular flour, both ways are terrific. My mother was so surprised at how well these came out, she couldn't believe it . The onions completely mask the flavor of the cauliflower.

How to Make Cauliflower Pancakes


  1. 4 cups of cauliflower riced. ( just take a head of cauliflower, Break off the florettes and put them in a food processor. Pulse until it becomes like a grain . If you don't have a food processor and you can do it by grading them on a cheese grater)
  2. Dice onions as small as you can
  3. Put Cauliflower and diced onions into microwave safe bowl and cook at high power for 10 minutes . Set aside or put in refrigerator to cool, stirring every so often to release the steam
  4. Once the Cauliflower has cooled add the stirred eggs, three quarters of a cup of flour and 2 teaspoons of baking powder . Stir well
  5. At this point you should have a thick batter.
    Heat your oil until 350.
  6. I usually just take a heaping teaspoon and put it into hot oil. I do press out the teaspoon into a nice pancake. Flip when golden
  7. I usually serve my pancakes fresh out of the oil with applesauce or for those who like it sour cream to give it an old world flavor
