I soak rice and lentils, then grind and ferment. The fermented batter is used for rice pancakes. Sometimes I mix bananas/molasses to make sweet pancakes. I grind batter once a month and the batter keeps in the fridge. Sours a bit, but still good. It's gluten-free.
I haven't been able to find plantains in Australia.

Rice pancake? Why not just mochi then?
That's a shame! I use plantains for everything. The plantain pancakes are very similar to regular pancakes, they flip nicely, and don't fall apart. Banana pancakes taste great but they're just such a pain to flip in the pan because they're so soft. I gave up on them a long time ago, but it can be done with bananas.

I prebake a potato at 325 degrees for a couple of hours in foil (my potatoes are HUGE, about 2-3 cups worth). Chill overnight, peel and mush about 2 cups with a hand blender with 5 eggs, and cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and salt (the leftovers can be mixed with a banana for another batch). Then I wisk in 1/4 c tapioca starch and pour on 325-350 girdle that was slathered with butter using my 1/4 c ladle. They flip fine and even if they were a bit underbaked before flipping, and break, I just 'reflip, and no biggie. My family loves it! Even my 7 yo fruit-fly tops them with plain yogurt and butter rather than honey because they are so perfectly flavor-balanced. Well, sometimes she does go for honey, lol.

They are pretty damn tasty too, I think even more so than regular pancakes.

Agreeing with Primaholic on this one. There are several varities of this recipe floating around the internet, it is quite possible to have pancakes without the slightest grain of flour, of any kind. There are banana and also pumpkin puree versions and all work well.
