I'm not vegan I'm just out of eggs pancakes

I was out of eggs and needing to make a weekend breakfast (ie not cereal). I searched the internet and found this recipe on a random blog.


•1 cup Flour
•1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
•2 teaspoons Baking Powder
•1/4 teaspoon Salt
•2 Tablespoons Sugar
•1 cup milk (the original recipe called for soy milk or water, so if you're a vegan, or are having one for breakfast.)
•1.5 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
•1/2 teaspoon Vanilla


Sift flour and baking soda/powder and salt. I just kind of stirred them together.

Add sugar. (Whisk these together is you don’t have a sifter, so says the random blogger)

Add Vanilla and Oil and half the milk. The original recipe says whisk, but my whisk got all gunks when I started adding wet ingredients. I dumped it and went to the spoon, specifically a measuring spoon because I didn't feel like getting another one out.

Gradually add the rest of the milk until thick pouring consistency. Okay at this point my son just dumped the rest of the milk in. Seemed to have an okay consistency.

Heat Frying pan – needs to be reasonably hot. I used margarine for frying, the random blogger used oil. Make fairly small pancakes, says she. Mine weren't that big but I don't see them falling apart if they were bigger. Batter behaved like normal pancake batter.

Now just eat it with syrup on top.

Yummy Brownie Cookies

1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup baking cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt


Preheat the oven to 350.

Mix together the butter and sugar, add the egg and the vanilla, mix some more. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Add the dry stuff to the wet stuff and mix some more.

Grease a cookie sheet. Roll the dough into little balls (like 1-inch) and put them on the cookie sheet (y'know, with a little bit of elbow room between them).

Bake for 15 minutes (in my oven, but my oven's cool, my old oven would've taken 8 minutes).
