I made an unusual recipe for Banana Oat Pancakes from the new King Arthur Flour Co. Whole Grain Baking cookbook. The only dairy called for in the recipe is melted butter, and I subbed walnut oil with great results. I was skeptical just looking at the recipe--the ingredients list seemed strange, but they turned out well, sweet and light in texture but with lots of flavor.
I found a great recipe for Southern applesauce pancakes and I adapted it. They called for milk as a liquid but I have used soy milk or applejuice and they turn out great.
I usually make the full batch and then freeze for later. That makes enough for two people, 2 different times. They freeze very well.If you put fruit in when they are cooking on the first side and then flip over when ready, they are really great. I like blueberries or raspberries. Mmmmmmmm......
1 cup wheat flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup soy milk or applejuice
1 beaten egg (or substitute)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cups applesauce
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Sift flour, salt and baking powder into a medium mixing bowl. Combine soy milk and egg. Stir into dry ingredients. Add vanilla, applesauce & cinnamon; beat well & let sit 5 minutes. Spoon batter into a hot, greased frying pan. (add fruit now)
When pancake edges are lightly browned, turn and cook on the other side.
Makes 6 -8 applesauce pancakes.
