Easy Pancakes

What you need: 

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups nondairy milk or water
dash cinnamon, optional

What you do: 

1. Lightly mix all ingredients in a fairly large bowl; leave 5-10 minutes to rise. It's important only to mix the batter enough to moisten, as overmixing will make the pancakes tough.
2. Gently fold down; leave again for 5-10 minutes if you have the time, and gently fold down again. (I don't usually bother, since everyone's starving!)
3. Cook over medium to medium-high on an oiled skillet until golden, carefully breaking apart any large lumps with the spatula. Serve immediately.

I made these pancakes with chocolate gravy for my husband and he LOVED them!!! Thanks for the recipe :-)


how many pancakes does this recipe make?

I think it depends on the size you make them :-)


these are soo good i just finnished making them and my preschoolers and toddlers ate them up and asked for seconds and thirds (even the toddler walked around with her pancake too) thanks for this great recipe (i did half the recipe)


DEEELICIOUS!  These truly turned out perfect. I made a double batch for 4 hungry people and it was SO much (31 thick, 1/4 cup pancakes), so we have tons of yummy leftover pancakes. Try adding 1/4 cup (or more) carob chips to a batch.

For the diabetics out there...258 g/carbs per batch (with whole wheat pastry flour=21g/ 1/4 cup and unsweetened silk=4g/ cup).  I got about 15 pancakes 1/4 cup each batter 16.5 g carbs per pancake.  With 45 g carob chips added (just over 1/4 cup) add 66 g carb to batch.


I just made these and they were really yummy. I added lots of cinnamon, some vanilla extract and some maple syrup to the batter. They came out great, better than box-mix pancakes. I served them with some butter, cinnamon and maple syrup on top. :) Yum!


Excellent recipe. Since becoming vegan about two years ago I have not made pancakes for my pancake-loving girlfriend.  This morning I gave it a try and they came out great. She thanks you! (as do I)


;)b Great recipe! I made the pancakes exactly as the recipe states and the 1st 6 came out really yummy (then the pan got too hot or something? I dunno, but no worries. 6 fed my husband and I quite nicely :) ). I experimented with a sauce... I'm gonna guess at the quantities...

1 1/2 cups frozen blueberries (thawed)
3/4 cup maple syrup 
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp salt
(use your judgement as I may be off on amounts here)

I mixed all together over a low heat until the syrup bubbled a little then poured the mixture over the pancakes.

My hubby said, "...maybe the best vegan breakfast I've ever had..." YAY!!! Home run!!! (Even though I may be a little sugar comatosed now, lol). Maybe I'll try agave rather than maple syrup next time.

Happy cooking!


This is the perfect pancake recipe!
Easy & common ingredients. Fast & fluffy like their non-vegan counterparts!


I always make the worst pancakes. PERFECT. These wer great. I added fresh blueberries in some and i was amazed. I had everything on hand. Delicious Recipe. Thank  you  ;)b


Just made this morning. I was a little worried because I only had bread flour, not all-purpose, and forgot to add the vegetable oil at the beginning (I folded it in after the first resting period). Two deliberate modifications: (1) shifted the dry ingredients together first and (2) folded in blueberries just before frying.

It turned out quite nicely. My husband, a pancake lover, enjoyed them. I only found them a little sweet (but I seem to say that about every recipe, so I probably just have weird taste buds). The recipe was definitely plenty for four people and could even be halved when serving four people with other side dishes.
