Pancakes For Breakast


We came across a copy of Pancakes for Breakfast at the library and then had to get a copy of it for the boys. Pancakes For Breakfast isn’t a new book, it dates to 1978, but it is so timeless. With no text, it is for the reader(s) to tell the tale. It is fun, and you can change the story each time you read it. It also encourages non-readers to tell the story as they see it!

And inside is a recipe for the pancakes. I swapped out the eggs so Alistaire could have them, and either way you make them, this recipe is solid and makes delicious pancakes quickly. This book and the pancakes make a wonderful holiday gift!




  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 3 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1½ Tbsp Ener-G Foods Egg Replacer + 6 Tbsp warm water (or 3 large eggs)
  • 2 cups milk (dairy or unsweetened non-dairy)
  • Butter for griddle


Heat a griddle or skillet over medium heat.

Whisk all ingredients into a large bowl. Whisk Ener-G and warm water together (or beat eggs together), add to milk and whisk.

Pour mixture into the flour mix.

Whisk together until batter just comes together, lumps are ok.

Whisk in the melted butter.

Run a stick of butter over hot griddle to barely coat. Drop ¼ cupfuls of batter on griddle. Cook until golden brown on bottom and flip over.

Made 16 pancakes.
