Eggless Pancakes

After watching my Sims (a computer game) eat pancakes, I wanted some too. So I tried out some recipes and found this one to be a winner. The original recipe called for 2 cups milk and 1 egg. I took out the egg and substituted it with 2 tbsp more milk. If the batter is too thick, just add more water or milk. Give it a try!

INGREDIENTS

2 ½ cups flour
3 tbsp sugar
3 tsp baking powder
1 ½ tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt

2 cups milk
2 tbsp milk
1 tsp lemon juice (or vinegar)
4 tbsp oil
1 tsp vanilla

DIRECTIONS
1. Stir the dry ingredients in a bowl.
2. Mix the lemon juice into the milk. Let it sit for a few minutes. The milk will curdle.
3. Stir in the liquid ingredients into dry ingredients together until the batter is fairly smooth.
4. Heat a lightly greased griddle. The pan is hot enough when a drop of water breaks into several smaller balls which 'dance' around the pan.
5. Pour about ¼ cup batter onto griddle.
6. Cook until bubbles form on the surface. Carefully flip pancakes with spatula and cook until golden brown.

I posted this recipe to RepiceZaar at http://www.recipezaar.com/Eggless-Pancakes-246227 and the following are reviews which I think are helpful if you have second thoughts about making the pancakes:

"Best eggless pancake recipe I've tried! Light and fluffy, and very tasty...I substituted 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour, and 1 cup of self rising flour for the all purpose flour. I also added another tsp of vanilla and a decent amount of cinnamon...bluberries cause i had them, but would be just as good withhout them. Thanks for a great recipe!!!!"

"These were great! I do daycare and my new little guy is allergic to eggs so this worked perfectly for a St. Patrick's Day snack! I put a few drops of green food coloring in the batter and the rest of the kids thought they were awesome too! Thanks for posting- I will definately be making these again!"

"Excellent pancakes - even compared to egged ones. Light and fluffy and delicious."
