Eggless Pancakes — Breakfast at Clique-any’s

Pancakes made with sugar? Believe it or not, the result is just sweet enough to work.

In my continuing journey to find allergy-free recipes that my son, who has reactions to soy and egg, would enjoy, I have come upon a number of variations for homemade pancakes. One that has popped up numerous times on various websites has been a recipe that has included sugar in the batter.

In my previous pancake adventures I had never used sugar, so I thought that this was a bit wonky, Yet, according to my family, the end result is still delicious with a bit of sweetness to it. Another success to add to the list! Now, if we could only remove soy and egg from every other recipe we would be golden.

  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons of sugar
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons of pure canola, sunflower or olive oil

Dry ingredients go first — flour, baking powder and sugar. Stir until blended. Add the milk and the oil; stirring rapidly until the batter is smooth.

Heat a pan or griddle to medium. Pour 1/4 cup of batter onto the heated surface. As you as you see the pancakes bubble and their edges turn a golden brown,  flip them over. Remove from the hot surface when the bottom is a golden brown as well. Should make somewhere in the area of 6 to 8 pancakes; enough for two to three people.

The pancakes we make have a little honey or maple syrup in them too, and it does come out great.

When Owen was allergic to eggs, we used the Ener-G Egg Replacer with good results in most of our recipes. Vegan recipes are another good source of egg-free fare.

Ener-G is a good substitute, but it costs somewhere in the area of $6 a box at your local natural food store. Lately, I’ve been using substitutes that provide a better hold and texture than powdered substitute egg.

Well, that $6 box gets you a lot of eggs. You can use other substitutes, of course, but a lot of the time I’ve noticed you can taste that there’s … something different in the recipe.
