Homemade Pancakes

I’m not a huge breakfast person – I have an intolerance to eggs so that really narrows down the options. Pancakes are my main exception to this. Hands down my favourite breakfast; warm, fluffy, and drizzled with maple syrup. Yum! This is a pretty special recipe I’m sharing with you today. I’ve been making this since I was a little kid! And whenever there are guests at our house – it seems they’ve heard of these homemade pancakes, as they’re always the first request.

I found this recipe way back in an old Purity cookbook and have not fussed with it too much. Why change an already good thing? I previously used regular 2% milk and our house has since changed to using almond milk instead. This doesn’t change anything in the flavour of the pancake which is awesome. It will lead to a slightly thinner pancake – you could always use a little less of it to get a thicker batter.

As a classic favourite, I always serve my homemade pancakes with butter and maple syrup. But adding some fresh fruit on top would be a great, healthier option. To me, pancakes are a treat – not something I eat everyday. So go all out right?

When I was younger, we started adding a splash of vanilla into the batter. Doesn’t have to be much, roughly a teaspoon goes a long way. It’s a nice small addition and adds great flavour. This recipe also used to call for a tablespoon of sugar. I recently substituted liquid honey in for this as I’m trying to get away from the refined sugar. I couldn’t even tell the difference. This being such a small amount, you could even omit altogether – as you’d get enough sweetness from the maple syrup at the end.

  2. Hey there, Whitney,
    I have good memories of these pancakes! I think I enjoyed them a time or two at your place, years ago. Glad you are writing about your favorites recipes. I will be looking forward to recipes of some of your cranberry creations, if you are willing to publish them. I remember some of those recipes as being extra special.
