G's Silver Dollar Pancakes

I normally make my own pancake syrup, but I did my big grocery shopping yesterday and picked up a bunch of bargain syrups at Grocery Outlet.  There was no corn syrup, colorings or artificial flavorings in them, and they were organic, so I really stocked up on them.  Next time I go, they may be all sold out.  Anyhow, with a huge stash of syrup in the pantry - Maple Agave, Blueberry, and Cranberry flavors - the Blessings were all hankering for pancakes this morning.  G works from home on Fridays, so we all pressured him into making them.  I cook every meal, so it's a nice treat when someone else does it...once a year or so, sigh.  He immediately started looking for Bisquick, which I haven't had in a couple of years (see, I told you he doesn't make pancakes that often), and when he couldn't find it, he began to panic and tried to withdraw from his forced commitment.  But, we wouldn't have it.  So, poor G made pancakes from scratch and did a great job!  He made up the recipe as he went along, refusing to look at my recipe; it was a matter of his male pride. I was actually surprised he wasn't pouring his characteristic sweat from his forehead whenever he cooks or chops; it seems to be such a stressful job for him.  Whenever he does make pancakes, they are always this cute little size, and I just had to pass them on to you.


G's Silver Dollar Pancakes

Ingredients:

2 cups flour
1 rounded Tbs. baking powder
2 Tbs. EnerG Egg Replacer
1/4 tsp. salt
2 cups soy milk, divided
1/4 canola oil
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Extra canola oil

Directions:

In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients: flour through salt.  Stir in one cup of milk. Add the oil and stir.  Then, add the second cup of milk and stir.  Add the vanilla extract and mix well.  Let set for ten minutes.  Heat a little oil in the bottom of a pan on medium heat, enough to swoosh around (according to G) - about a teaspoon or so.  Using a tablespoon size spoon, the larger ones in your spoon set, scoop batter a spoonful at a time onto the hot pan.  Cook until you see the top of them drying out (huh?), or lightly browned on both sides.  Serve hot with your favorite syrup.  Feeds five hungry vegans.

    We didn't go anywhere on vacation. I was up at my Dad's for several days for his surgery.

  8. That's so funny, Blessed Mama! I popped over here, now that I have a wee bit of time to read my favourite blogs, and saw that you'd posted about pancakes! I've posted a recipe for pancakes on my latest blog post, too! Great minds??? My recipe is different, so I must try yours. Your variety of syrups sound very interesting, and all organic? Wow! However, I've recently become a convert to sugar and lemon juice on mine. Oh, my! I've become addicted and crave them night and day...
