For me, there is no better way to ring in the new year than with pancakes with my family. We reached deep into the freezer and dug out the last of the blueberries and peaches from last summer, and made some wicked good pancakes together. A family that plays together, stays together, right? How 'bout a family that eats all year together, completes the year together? A little off, eh? Well, you get the idea.

Here's the recipe, with the link. Its delicious, and I'm pretty excited about this blog's other egg-free baking.

Egg-free Pancakes
(From Art of Dessert)
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups milk*
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup melted butter*

*Vegan substitutes: Instead of milk, you can use soy milk, rice milk, almond milk or fruit juice. You can replace the melted butter with vegetable oil, applesauce, coconut oil or vegetable shortening.

Sift together flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together milk, oil and orange juice. Slowly add in the melted butter. Pour about 1/2 cup of batter onto a hot nonstick pan. (This batter is tends to bubble up and thicken due to the baking powder. You can gently stir it to break down some of the bubbles to bring it back to a pourable consistency.) Cook until you see a few bubbles rise to the surface and it's dry around the edges, then flip over to cook the other side until lightly browned. Serve with butter and maple syrup or whipped cream and fresh fruit.


  1. egg-free is a staple in my house! yummy! happy new year
