What is Brown Teff Flour?
Teff is a tiny grain native to Ethiopia and Eritrea that has gained popularity in recent years for its nutritional value and versatility in cooking. Often ground into flour, teff is a staple ingredient in traditional Ethiopian and Eritrean dishes such as injera, a spongy sourdough flatbread. Brown teff flour is made from ground brown teff grains. It has a slightly nutty and sweet flavor, and is a nutritious option for baking and cooking.

It is also naturally gluten-free, making it a suitable choice for those following a gluten-free diet.

How to use Brown Teff Flour for Baking
Brown Teff flour has a crumbly consistency and would probably require twice the amount of regular flour to get the same structure. The downside is that you need a lot more teff flour to get any meaningful structure. However, since the dough is crumbly, you will always end up with something soft. Be careful so you do not end up with a stodgy dry pancake by adding too little liquid. You have to control the liquid to flour ratio so you have a workable batter that has structure.
Cook this on low to medium heat. I used Molasses for a deep rich flavor. You can also swap the brown sugar for honey but it you would have to increase the amount of brown teff flour. You have to use a spoon to control the edges of the pancake while it is in the pan.
