Eggless (or Egg-free) Pancakes

Sunday morning fail... it was pancake day and we were out of eggs! Oh no. How do you make pancakes without eggs? Is it really possible to make fluffy, light pancakes without eggs? What do I use as a substitute for eggs? As I sat pondering these questions, I did a search on the internet (of course) and came across a yummy-looking recipe for Eggless Pancakes on Food.com. With some healthy adjustments to the original recipe, I was able to create a batch of fluffy, moist, delicious pancakes WITHOUT eggs! Crisis averted.




'Pancake Sunday' was saved with this egg-free recipe. In fact, Amy said these were her favorite pancakes so far! So no need to run out to the store in your pj's if you are out of eggs, a tasty batch of pancakes can be made without them... and I bet your loved ones won't even be able to tell the difference.

Eggless (or Egg-free) Pancakes
Makes about 12 pancakes

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed, optional
  • 2 cups vanilla soy milk, light (or you can use fat-free milk)
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Directions:
Heat griddle or large pan over medium heat on the stove top.

In a large bowl, mix all the dry ingredients. Add soy milk, water, applesauce, and vanilla. Mix well; but don't over-stir (a few lumps are ok).

Drop 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake onto griddle or pan.


Flip the pancakes when bubbles begin to form. Keep heat to medium or medium-low; the pancakes can burn easily.

Serve warm! (with some butter and syrup, yum)



Enjoy... I know we sure did. :) 'Pancake Sunday' just keeps getting better and better.
