Watching his brother eat pancake after pancake, morning after morning, has finally piqued my FA son’s curiosity.  Even though he has tried various allergy-free pancakes several times (without truly enjoying them), he recently requested them.


Without pre-prepared pancake mix on hand, I researched a recipe and tweaked it to make it dairy-free.  Success!  These would taste great with cinnamon, chocolate chips, blueberries…Give it a whirl:  you may never go back to a mix again!



3/4 cup vanilla soy milk

2 Tablespoons white vinegar

1 cup flour

2 Tablespoons white sugar

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 egg

2 Tablespoons dairy-free butter, melted

cooking spray/dairy-free butter


Combine soy milk and vinegar in a medium bowl and set aside for approximately 5 minutes to sour.


Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a separate mixing bowl.   Whisk egg and dairy-free butter into soured milk.  Pour flour mixture into soured milk mixture and whisk until lumps have mostly disappeared.


Heat a large skillet over medium heat and coat with either cooking spray, or (as I prefer) dairy-free butter.  Pour 1/4 cups of batter onto skillet to form pancakes.  Cook until bubbles form on one side before flipping.  Continue cooking until lightly browned on the other side.


NB:  You may wish to *carefully* wipe the skillet with a dry paper towel between rounds of pancakes to remove the browned butter.  If you do, remember to add a little more butter to coat the pan and to turn down the heat slightly for another perfect round of ‘cakes.  Mmmmm…. I can’t wait for breakfast!

  1. […] While looking at recipes, don’t be put off if they include your allergen.  Simply do a little research to see if there’s a safe alternative and/or omission.  We just omit peanuts from our Kung Pao Chicken dish.  And, we sub-in soy milk for regular in pancakes. […]
