These pancakes are light, fluffy, and very delicious. You don't miss the egg or dairy at all! I have sent it to my friends, and several have tried it and given it both thumbs up. They cook very quickly, so do not leave them on the pan for too long or they will burn. You may double the recipe for more servings. Great for a quick, delicious breakfast!


  1. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a medium mixing bowl. Add the water and applesauce; mix well. Cook on a greased griddle or skillet. Flip when they start to bubble slightly on the top.

Great easy recipe! I made some substitutions, but the adaptability of this recipe is what I love. I used a mix whole wheat flour and all-purpose, and blueberry applesauce instead of regular. I also added cinnamon. You are right that they cook quickly--I did end up with a couple of slightly burnt ones but that was my own fault. I know my baby will love these. :-)

Great! We made about 20 pancakes using the 4 medium pancake recipe by doing small ones, about 2 inches across each! We too added cinnamon, but I used Soy Milk instead of Water and it was great!

I froze them and will have lunch and snacks for a week :-) !

I may add sweet potato puree next time though bc HE loves them!!!

just tried this for my infant who can't have dairy or eggs yet until he is 1. I added cinnamon to the mix before cooking and it was actually pretty good! My 3 year old actually ate it...pretty impressed! I will definitely use for my baby until he can eat the regular ones. You just need to grease the pan for the pancakes after every batch is made.
