WOW! Im so shocked! Who needs eggs!? I didnt have any eggs in the house and the kids wanted pancakes. I was expecting these to not be so great and boy was I WRONG!! These are fluffy and delicious! I used milk and added 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. I cooked them in some butter, didnt stick, easy as pie and OH SO GOOD!
These pancakes were amazing! I did do some substitutions though. I ended up doubling the recipe since my family likes big pancakes, and likes to eat about 3 a piece per person, so when I doubled the recipe instead of the 6 tbsp of sugar, I did 5tbsp and 1tbsp of cinnamon sugar that I had bought around Christmas time and need to use in more recipes. I used the eggs instead of water since no one in my family has an egg allergy, and I added a splash of vanilla to the wet mixture. Instead of adding the wet mixture to the dry, I did the opposite and it came out just fine with very little lumps. I didn't use margarine, instead I used butter and I didn't put it in the pan, I used half of what the recipe calls for just for the mixture. Also, I used my stove to cook these which is an electric stove and had to play around with the heat setting, which ended up having to be on low-medium (About 3-4) so they wouldn't get too dark on the bottom when waiting for the bubbles to surface. But these are the best homemade pancakes I have had and you can taste just a hint of the cinnamon which is great. Definitely a great recipe and we will be making these again.
The recipe worked out great for my 5 kids aged 5 and under. Wound up making 3 batches and never got to eat any of them... Made the first batch with whole wheat flour, second (double) batch was 50/50 white/whole wheat flour, both were equally popular. Added a 1/2 tsp of vanilla.
Only cautionary notes are that the extra water is essential if you are skipping the eggs and that my double-batch got a little rubbery and hard to work with by the bottom of the bowl...
Awesome pancakes! We've tried many different ones due to my sons egg allergy.
Thank you! Thank you for posting this! My son is allergic to eggs and I've been a little lost with what to feed him! He loves these pancakes. Actually the whole family loves them! We don't miss the egg at all. They are fluffy and delicious.
My daughter is two. She is allergic to milk and helped me make and eat these. I like them better than the ones with milk.
these were so yummy - even the burnt ones got eaten. I didn't melt the marg first - just rubbed it into the dry ingredients. They have to be cooked on a very low heat - they are easy to burn.
My daughter had a friend sleep over who is allergic to dairy and eggs. I followed the recipe exactly, except i used dairy free butter instead of margarine. Turned out fantastic and very tasty! Great recipe!!
I am pregnant, and I woke up this morning craving pancakes or French toast. Unfortunately, we just got back from vacation and are out of bread and milk :(. I was determined to have some pancakes, so I went on a search and found this recipe. I used the egg, and I added a little bit of vanilla. They turned out delicious and definitely satisfied my craving. I think next time I will reduce the sugar since I put syrup on them normally, but they are delicious as is if you eat them plain! They may be a bit denser than normal pancakes, but the flavor is great and they definitely do the job for me! Thanks for the recipe!
I just finished trying the recipe and it is sooo good!! I don't use butter or margarine so I switched that part of the recipe with oil. They still came out great! Light and fluffy and delicious. Thanks.
