Ingredients

How to make it

  • In mixing bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In another mixing bowl, combine egg, water, and cooking oil and vanilla. (occasionally I will substitute rum, lemon, blueberry or some other extract for the vanilla) Add to flour mixture all at once. Stir mixture just until blended but still slightly lumpy. Pour about ¼ C. batter onto a hot, lightly greased griddle or heavy skillet for each standard sized pancake or about 1 Tbsp of batter for each dollar-sized pancake.
  • Cook until pancakes are golden brown, turning to cook second side when pancake has bubbly survace and slightly dry edges. Makes 8 to 10 standard-size or 36 dollar-sized pancakes.

    I'd give it five stars with the changes I made. I used 1/2 cup white flour, 1/4 wheat flour, and 1/4 cup buckwheat flour. I added 1 tbsp ground flax seed, and 1 tbsp cinnamon. I used 1/2 cup almond "milk" and 1/2 cup water, although I think all water would have probably been just fine with this mixture. I used raw honey instead of syrup. I can't have any dairy (not even lactose-free), so I would use a vegan spread like Earth Balance if I wanted butter on top. I just used the honey on top this time, and they were awesome. My husband and I loved them and I will definitely make again. Also, the recipe was a really good size for just two people - I usually end up with way more pancake batter than I need.

    To each his own. I've had some people love this recipe and some people hate it. My family loves them. As far as special milk, it would be something I bought just to make him pancakes, since he would never actually drink it. A waste of money on my part. But a good suggestion for those who would use it.

    Awful disgusting recipe, yuk yuk yuk, never going to use again. just taste like flour and water . you can buy special milk for lactose intolerant people by the way. Milk is a main ingredient to successful pancakes. i give it a one star rating.

    This recipe does produce fluffy pancakes, but they taste very much like flour. The milk in the original recipe is apparently very important for flavor. The pancakes can be rescued by liberal application of syrup, butter, jam, honey, or the like.

    In addition to water, alternatives to milk also include apple sauce, mashed bananas, and mashed avocado. I have tried each of these with fair to decent results, although the taste is a bit one-note. Ultimately, it's tough to beat the traditional buttermilk based recipe.

    They were great. Easy to make but I did add my own twist to the recipe. Like adding cinnamon and vanilla to add flavor. My mom said they sort of tasted like Crepes. Thanks for the recipe because I wanted to make breakfast and found out that our milk went bad. Thanks again.

    I didn't have any milk at home so I looked online for a milk-less pancake recipe. I am only cooking for two adults and two kids so I chose this recipe because other recipes made too many pancakes. I like pancakes light and fluffy and these are a tad dense and heavy. This is a simple recipe so I won't give up on it. I will tweak it to my liking in the future. Oh, also add about 1/4 tbsp vanilla extract to bring the flavor out.

    Made this for breakfast this morning with 15 minutes to spare before leaving for work. Was super quick and easy, didn't have much in the way of fluff but the texture's tough without milk. I added raspberries, pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon and ate with Ginger People syrup, so good. Would probably be a bit bland without some extra creativity. Fixed my pancake craving!

    Great recipe! No milk in the house, so this was great - and my picky milk-loving roommate couldn't tell the difference. I added a whole medium diced banana and a dash each of ground clove and freshly grated nutmeg and the results were very, very good.

    I rarely use anything. I have a really great teflon pan that doesn't need spray.
    Usually, on the recipe, if it looks too thin, I add just a little more flour to thicken it up. I like thicker pancakes, but my family likes the thinner ones, so it depends on my mood. You can alter it slightly and it won't change the flavor!

    I made these today for breakfast. They were really good, but I did have some questions about them:

    What do you use to grease your skillet?? I use PAM spray but they don't seem to brown when I use it. Also, when I tried butter today, they turned out all floppy and greasy and gross.

    Also, mine turned out too thin and didn't have any dimension although I followed the recipe perfectly.


    However, I thought that they were really good considering that there was no milk!! Thanks for the great recipe considering my flunks listed above. ;D
