Recipe: simple egg-free fluffy pancakes (V)

Egg-free fluffy pancakes (V)

Love pancakes but not a fan of eggs? No problem!

This delicious recipe is vegetarian friendly (make it vegan by substituting the milk for dairy-free milk and butter for coconut oil).  You could even try swapping the self-raising flour for oat flour but I can’t comment on how fluffy the pancakes will be… will have to be a new experiment for me! I’ve also made protein pancakes in the past, there’s two protein pancake recipes here which you can try.

Here’s a photo of the ones I made the other day with vanilla ice on top and a homemade peanut butter dulce de leche caramel in between.. it was delicious! The kids had their pancakes with chocolate-hazelnut spread and Daddy P had his with traditional lemon and sugar. I liked making the pancakes small as they looked so cute and perfect size for small hands.

My egg-free pancakes… just as fluffy as standard pancakes!

Ingredients

  • Self-raising flour 100g
  • Whole or semi-skimmed milk 100ml
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter (melted)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • oil spray (a few tbsp oil for cooking)

Method

  1. Sieve the flour into a bowl and add in caster sugar and baking powder – these are known as dry ingredients.
  2. Then add in milk and butter – these are known as wet ingredients.
  3. Whisk all the ingredients together until a smooth consistency is formed, it should be a thick creamy consistency.
  4. Put the hob on a medium heat and add oil to the pan, only use a small amount and distribute evenly either with a brush or flat spatula.
  5. Pour in the mix slowly and cook for around 2-4mins or until bubbles can be seen forming to the top of the pancake. You can check the base of the pancake, it should be a light brown colour before turning.
  6. Flip over and cook on other side for about 1-2mins, you can check by slightly lifting the pancake
  7. Cook remaining pancakes and serve with your own toppings!

Topping suggestions:

  • Lemon and sugar
  • Chocolate hazelnut spread
  • Ice cream scoop
  • Banana and caramel sauce
  • Strawberries and whipped or pouring cream
  • Greek yoghurt, blueberries and honey
  • Cherry or mixed berry compote and vanilla ice cream
  • Oranges (sliced) with grand marnier liqueur (alcohol)
  • Syrup – golden or maple
  • Any combination of the above!
