I tasted pancakes when I first went out with my husband’s friends to a pancake specialty restaurant. Loaded with eggs I just couldn’t eat even one and there were no other choice of eggless items in the menu. I eat eggs disguised in cakes and ice creams other than that my face and nose can turn funny with the raw smell of eggs. Since I was with my husband’s friends I didn’t want to show any sign of discomfort but this experience sure made me run away from pancakes for years. Recently, I saw this recipe for pancakes and that to eggless. Remembering my unpleasant experience I was so hesitant to try but my kids were insisting that I try them. I felt so happy with the outcome as it can be made in a jiff and the taste was awesome. The pancakes were soft and spongy with the perfect sweetness and can be made for evening snack as an alternative. The topping and flavors can be varied according to your imagination and availability of fresh fruits. Also if you are feeding young kids, bite size pancakes will be perfect with make your own topping as an option to encourage them to appreciate their food more.
All purpose flour — 1 cup
Sugar — 1 tsp
Cinnamon — 1/4 tsp
Baking powder — 2 tsp
Milk — 1 cup
Vegetable Oil — 1 Tbsp
Water — 1 Tbsp
Vanilla Extract — 1 tsp
Butter — 2 Tbsp
1. Combine the dry ingredients together in a bowl. Measure 1 cup of milk in a bowl and add vegetable oil, water, and vanilla extract to the milk. Whisk well to combine. Slowly stir in the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Do not over-mix, its ok to have lumps. Set aside for about 5 minutes.
2. Heat a griddle and when hot, melt butter and pour it to the pancake batter. Mix the butter into the batter.
3. When the pan is hot, pour a ladle of pancake batter. Cook until bubbles appear, flip the pancake after a minute. Let it cook on both sides till golden brown. Enjoy the pancakes with your choice of fresh fruits, syrup or honey.
Note: This recipe also works well with whole wheat flour. Chopped fruit, nuts or chocolate chips can be added to batter before cooking or topped on each individual pancake while cooking for a unique treat.
