How to Make Pancakes
This is so easy! Begin by mixing all your wet ingredients together in a small mixing bowl. Melt the butter of your choice, add the milk and egg of your choice, and give it a good stir. Add the splash of vanilla and the sugar. Set aside.
In a medium sized mixing bowl add your flour, salt, and baking powder. Stir in your wet mixture until everything is well combined. This batter will be thick! If you like your pancakes a little thinner, you can add a few more tablespoons of milk. The thicker the batter the fluffier the final pancake!
Pour batter onto a hot griddle or skillet pan. I like large pancakes so I use about ¼ cup of batter per pancake. Gently spread the batter out so it is an even circle. Let cook on the first side until the bubbles pop in the center, about 3-4 minutes. Flip and let cook for another 3 minutes.
Keep pancakes warm on a plate under a towel or in a 200F oven. Serve hot with butter and syrup!
Allergy Variations for Pancakes
Dairy Substitutions: For the butter, I suggest your favorite non-dairy butter. Mine is Earth Balance with no added soy. This melts wonderfully and has a great taste! For the milk, use your favorite non-dairy milk. Soy, rice, and oat all work fantastic in this recipe!
Egg Substitutions: There are a few different eggs you can try in this recipe! First is a flax or chia seed egg. Mix 1 tablespoon of flax seeds with 3 tablespoons of hot water. Stir and let rest for 5 minutes before adding to the batter. You can also whip ¼ cup aquafaba until it gets fluffy and fold into the pancake batter.
