My girls are allergic to chicken and eggs. I am allergic to chicken and eggs, too. I can live without eating chicken and teach kids not to eat chicken. However, avoiding baked products that contain eggs is really hard. Both my girls and I love snacking on breads and pastries so these days, I am training myself in eggless cooking or no egg baking. For a start, I found out how to come up with a pancake recipe that requires no egg. Yes, it has no eggs so it doubles as a vegan pancake.
1 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 medium ripe banana
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp oil
-Sift flour, baking powder and salt all together. Set aside.
-In a bowl, mash the peeled banana until smooth.
-Add sugar, vanilla, oil and about half a cup of milk. Mix well.
-Gradually pour the flour mixture.
-Add more milk if the batter is still thick.
-Cook like your regular pancake.
The end product of this recipe is soft, delicious, and nutritious pancakes. If you are allergic to eggs just like us but not really on a strict vegan diet, I recommend to top your pancakes with butter or margarine. If you are a fan of cheese, you can add shredded cheese right after pouring your batter in the pan (before flipping it) for some added flavor. Of course, your all-time favorite pancake syrup is fine, too. As for me, I choose to skip sugar and instead, pour a generous amount of raw honey on my pancakes. Yummy!
