Eggless American style pancakes

I’ve never made American style pancakes before, and these actually turned ok, they were delicious with maple syrup on them, I just need to get the shape of them right next time (there were a few odd looking circles!). I think these would also make a good substitute for Blinis.



Cooking time: 4-6 minute per pancake (approx 2-3 minutes each side)

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Makes 12 pancakes

The Ingredients:

  • 4oz Flour
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 2  tsp baking powder
  • 7fl0z whole Milk
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • oil for cooking

The Method:

  1. Sift the flour in to a bowl
  2. Add the sugar and baking powder
  3. Mix the water and oil with the milk
  4. Add the milk mixture to the bowl and mix with a whisk or folk until it looks like a batter, don’t over mix it, it should still have some lumps in it
  5. Add some oil to a frying pan ( I add approx 2 tsp per pancake as the pancakes taste drier than pancakes with egg in) and heat until it’s smoking hot
  6. Add one ladle of the pancake mixture to the frying pan, to keep the thickness of the pancake try not to move the pan as much. These pancakes will take longer to cook than thin pancakes, I keep flipping mine to prevent them from burning.

    Needed some pancakes for my son to take into school tomorrow for shrove Tuesday. Mine haven’t risen as well as those in the photo but they certainly pass for pancakes! Another hit thank you!

    I’ve tried making these but they come out as normal ones. Am I missing something or is it the same recipe?
    Still loving your other recipes, we made the cookies but with raisins they were great x

      Hi Emily,
      I will be adding more recipes soon, I’ve had to take a little break from it, but will be back in the kitchen soon!
      I have tried to make yorkshire puddings a few times but can’t get them to rise (even with loads of bi carb added!), I am determined to do it though!
      Thanks :o)

    I followed the recipe pretty much exact but no matter how soon I turned them they were burnt and if I flipped them too early the mixture obviously wasnt ready so I left them to burn both sides and still wasn’t cooked properly in the middle, what was I doing wrong??

    • Jude says:

      Did you have enough oil in the pan? I had to keep them moving so that they kept cooking, but didn’t burn.
      Let me know if you try them again.
      Thanks :o)
