Spiced Pancakes

Spiced pancakes

After a crazy week, I love to relax and make a Saturday breakfast for my family, especially pancakes. I love the smell wafting through the air as I make them, and the maple syrup drizzling down the sides when they are served.

It is often difficult to convert recipes to work with a vegan or plant-forward diet, such as our Lenten fast. That said, there are various tricks for vegan baking, which improve it significantly.

With that in mind, I hope you enjoy this dairy-free, egg-free spiced pancake recipe. It doesn’t taste like it is vegan – and is very flavorful. It reminds me of the holiday season – which is enjoyable to me all year long!

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar packed
  • 1 cup non-dairy milk
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • small pinch nutmeg
  • very small pinch ground ginger
  • very small pinch ground cloves


  • Mix together flour, baking powder, salt and spices. Make sure it is thoroughly mixed.
  • Measure 1 cup of non-dairy milk in liquid measuring cup. Add apple cider vinegar and let sit (5-10 minutes)
  • Take some of the non-dairy milk and mix it with the brown sugar to dissolve it thoroughly. Add brown sugar mixture and vanilla to the flour mixture.
  • Make a well in the dry ingredients by pushing some flour to the sides. Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.
  • Whisk ingredients together until just combined. Some lumps will still be there. Let sit for 5 minutes.
  • While the batter is sitting, preheat an electric griddle (at about 375 degrees farenheit) or medium heat in a non-stick pan.
  • Once pans are hot and the batter is ready, use 1/2 measuring cup to pour batter onto the griddle or pan. If you are having oil, add some Earth Balance or non-dairy butter.
  • Wait until bubbles are through the top of the pancake. Flip and wait some more until the bottom size is browned.
  • NOTE: Keep pancakes warmed in the oven. Cover with foil and keep oven low, around 190 degrees farenheit or the "Warm" setting on the oven.
