These turned out as good or better than most vegan pancake recipes I've tried. I was worried about all that baking powder, but it wasn't detectable to me in the finished product. I used the measurements exactly as written, only I used spelt flour and chocolate soy milk. There were tears over who got the last pancake....so I should have made more! Thanks for sharing, I love the simplicity of this recipe and will be making again soon.

So fluffy! I only had a little bit of wheat flour left, so i mostly used regular bread flour. Seriously, who needs eggs anymore at all with recipes like these?

Excellent pancakes. I'm a new vegetarian (almost a year) and trying to work my way up to vegan. I used unsweetened Almond milk instead of Soy milk. This is the first pancake recipe I've found that was both simple and tasty. I love it!

These pancakes are awful!!!!!! We were not able to eat them. The baking powder was overwhelming. These were the worst vegan pancakes ever, probably the worst vegan food I have ever made!

These tasted awful, I think because of the baking powder. I wouldn't recommend this recipe. They look really good, but the super sweet homemade jam I put on them didn't cover the bad taste.

Excellent - I had these for breakfast and they were really good! Then my kids came home from school and wanted a snack. I added 2 teaspoons minced garlic and 2 teaspoons basil. WOW!

Well, excess sodium is bad for you, but this was vile. The baking soda has gone further than overkill. This recipe had my very courteous partner swearing from sheer disgust. I only signed up for food.com to warn people. Nothing masked the taste of the baking soda, the mixture was too thick, and a PURPOSE of egg is a binding agent, which has not been taken into account. I'd. recommmend the post punk kitchen for a recipe that is less quick, but certainly not revolting.

I made these thinking that that much baking powder would have made them nicer, and it did in terms of consistency but the taste was just too bitter. Use LESS BAKING POWDER next time.. I don't know how this recipe can get such good reviews?

I made these during a rare bout of morning sickness in which I actually felt capable of stepping foot in the kitchen. My taste sensitivities were on overdrive but I had no issues with the baking powder taste. (I don't think it would hurt too much to reduce it by .5-1 TB or so though.)

I used white flour, added a tablespoon of flax meal, and threw in a teaspoon of vanilla for good measure. I also let the batter sit for a few minutes before I hit the griddle. They came out perfectly! Fluffy, yet sturdy and perfectly golden.

FYI: These seem to cook a little faster than "normal" pancakes--a plus!

With all due respect, this was so disgusting I seriously thought one of my ingredients had gone bad...until I realized, I used all my ingredients in other things yesterday or today; that was not the problem. Then I read the comments...WAY too much baking powder. I understand pancakes are supposed to be fluffy, but if they're inedible the fluffiness just makes them bulkier in the trash.<br/><br/>A suggestion: revise the recipe to say as follows: "Some people prefer the fluffiness achieved by using 2 tbsp. of baking powder, as does the author, but many food.com users say it makes the pancakes too bitter and prefer using less, even as little as 2 tsp."
