Who needs a simple pancake recipe for Pancake Day?

Please tell me you love pancakes as much as I do! ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜€ ?

You do know that next week is Pancake Day right? or Shrove Tuesday? Yay… any excuse to eat pancakes – not that you really need an excuse, but just in case you do!ย 

We have them for breakfast or brunch mostly, thin pancakes, or thick pancakes, with fruit, maple syrup, nut butters, chocolate sauce, or just with lemon & sugar!

We already have eight pancake recipes on the blog, a few of which I will link below, but we’ve just discovered a very very simple recipe… simpler than our already simple pancake recipes! These are eggless pancakes using just flour, milk and baking powder! Yay… store-cupboard ingredients – no shopping trip required! Okay, so I have added some linseeds in the recipe, but you really don’t have to! ๐Ÿ˜€ So now you can have pancakes any time you like! ๐Ÿ˜€

Let’s have a look at those other recipes:

Bursting Blueberry Pancakes

Topped Pancakes

Fairtrade Pancakes

We don’t have a favourite recipe and often we just throw the ingredients together and adjust as we go along, but the above recipes are used when someone else wants to make them! hint hint! ๐Ÿ˜› I’m sharing these pancakes over at Fiesta Friday this week where I am co-hosting again, this time with Kat @ Katโ€™s 9 Lifes. You really should make your way over and join us! ๐Ÿ˜€ Anyway, this super quick and easy recipe…



Quick and easy, egg-free pancake recipe.

Created by:: Laurena @LifeDietHealth
  • 200 g plain flour gluten free if required
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground linseeds
  • 400 ml milk we used unsweetened carton coconut
  1. Throw everything in a blender jug and blend until evenly combined.

  2. Smear a smidge of oil on a non-stick pan and heat until hot.

  3. Pour some of the batter in the pan and swirl around gently to get a round shape.

  4. Allow to cook until bubbles form (don’t be tempted to press the pancake down). Flip over and allow to cook on the other side (the second side needs less time).

  5. Repeat with the remaining batter.

  6. Either eat as they are cooked, or stack on a plate in the oven (on a low heat) until ready to serve.

  7. Add your toppings and enjoy!

Tips & Storage
  • If you don’t have linseeds, you can use ground chia instead, or just omit them completely (the batter will just be a bit thinner).
  • The batter will thicken on standing.
  • Make flavoured pancakes by adding a dash of spice or essence – try cinnamon, ginger, vanilla, coffee or add a tablespoon of cocoa powder.ย 
  • Pancakes can be stored in the fridge for up to three days then reheated in a pan or the toaster.
  • Eat them one-by-one or create a pancake stack.
  • Layer with fruits, nut butters, jams, yogurt, cream, even ice-cream!
  • Drizzle with chocolate, syrups, compote or cream.
  • Sprinkle with extra fruits, nuts or chocolate.

    So simple and perfect for Pancake Tuesday! I love that you included a dairy-free and gluten-free option. Thanks for sharing and thanks for cohosting with me this week!

    • Laurena@LifeDietHealth 1st March 2019 at 13:24

      Thanks Kat! ๐Ÿ˜€ Oh yes, pancakes for everyone! What do you have on yours?! Thanks for co-hosting with me too! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Can’t beat good old lemon and sugar?It sounds awful but I’ve ‘banned’ hubby from keeping Nutella in the house- I’ve suggested he try healthier versions of chocolate and hazelnut spread but he doesn’t want to know lol. Have a great weekend (oh, and I’m still looking into clinical aromatherapy courses)?

    • Laurena@LifeDietHealth 1st March 2019 at 16:25

      My son is with you on the lemon & sugar! (more sugar than lemon though I think)!!! Ooo, I should post my notella recipe – maybe he would eat that! ๐Ÿ˜€ Are you making pancakes on Tuesday? Ooo, well done on the courses – I’m waiting to find out what you decide!? ๐Ÿ˜€

    […] am linking up to Angie’s Fiesta Friday #265, with Laurena@Life Diet Health and Kat@Kat’s 9 […]

    Didn’t realize it was going to be Pancake Day next Tuesday. I really like all the banana slices and blueberries alongside. I’ve never tried lemon and sugar on pancakes… I could see the lemon but pancakes already are cooked with sugar (indeed, while I love the flavor of maple syrup, I like just the lightest drizzle, just for the flavor, not for the sugar…)

    • Laurena@LifeDietHealth 1st March 2019 at 16:53

      Pancake Day crept up so quickly on us too! You’ve never had lemon and sugar on pancakes? Oh my! Maybe that’s a traditional British thing? We were brought up on pancakes with lemon and sugar – there were no other options! Oh, apart from mushrooms and cheese?!? Yes, I’m like that with the maple – just for the taste (have you tried maple sugar?) I usually just have almond butter and bananas on mine ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Eva 1st March 2019 at 17:12

    Notella, how clever- just noticed that rhymes? I come back from London on Tuesday so not sure if I will make them or not… But definitely some time next week! ?

    • Laurena@LifeDietHealth 1st March 2019 at 18:15

      Oh, are you over here?! How did I miss that?!

  • Eva 1st March 2019 at 19:35

    Lol, didn’t want to bore you about my Cypriot citizenship application… Will take up to 9 months apparently for such a small country?x

    • Laurena@LifeDietHealth 1st March 2019 at 21:05

      Oh no.. feel free! nine months is quite quick you know!!!

  • Eva 1st March 2019 at 23:31

    Ahh ok, I wasn’t aware of that lol… I was told up to 3 months?

    • Laurena@LifeDietHealth 1st March 2019 at 23:45

      I guess it depends on the country.. and the back-log! I know of people waiting years! ?

  • Ai | Ai made it for you 2nd March 2019 at 05:25

    Yum! I love pancakes!! Although, I haven’t made pancakes in a long time since our nonstick pan got ruined. Never tried them with linseed, but it sounds delicious!! Happy Fiesta Friday, Laurena!?

    • Laurena@LifeDietHealth 3rd March 2019 at 12:52

      Thanks Ai ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh no… how do you cope without a non-stick pan! All our pans are non-stick and we use them for everything! Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

  • Kat (The Baking Explorer) 2nd March 2019 at 10:33

    Yummy, I love panckes too!

    • Laurena@LifeDietHealth 3rd March 2019 at 12:53

      Pancakes are the best! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks Kat.

  • NancyC 3rd March 2019 at 16:27

    These pancakes look wonderfulโ€”what a treat! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Laurena@LifeDietHealth 3rd March 2019 at 16:49

      Thanks Nancy. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Balvinder 5th March 2019 at 17:31

    I wouldn’t mind a stack of pancakes anyway with fruits. Shame on me though…..didn’t know March !st was pancake day.

    • Laurena@LifeDietHealth 5th March 2019 at 17:36

      Thanks Balvinder ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s not too late though… today (Tuesday) is pancake day! ๐Ÿ™‚ Grab your pan and make some delicious pancakes! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Loretta 6th March 2019 at 13:13

    I had great plans to make some Goan pancakes yesterday, but time and feeling sluggish got the better of me. I do love that stack though, full of fresh fruit. Have you changed your format? I was a bit confused, then I realized it was you ๐Ÿ™‚ Nice.

    • Laurena@LifeDietHealth 6th March 2019 at 16:33

      Hello Loretta ๐Ÿ™‚ Yes, I’m gradually changing my format – when I make time! ๐Ÿ™‚ Goan pancakes sound yummy – they have a coconut filling right? We had pancakes for breakfast yesterday and after dinner too (I thought I’d get away just with the breakfast ones)! Pancake stacks with fruit are one of my favourites… usually with hidden almond butter, chocolate and maple syrup! Lovely to see you over here again. x

  • Angie | Fiesta Friday 8th March 2019 at 03:24

    They look beautiful, Laurena! Almost like a layered cake ๐Ÿ™‚ What are linseeds exactly? Are they like flaxseeds? A substitute for eggs? Too many questions! Lol. Thanks for cohosting and for staying on another week! XOXO

    • Laurena@LifeDietHealth 8th March 2019 at 07:46

      Thanks Angie and you’re welcome!?Oops, yes, linseeds and flaxseeds are one and the same, like courgettes are zucchini amd aubergine is eggplant!??We use several things for an egg replacer and ‘flax’seeds work brilliantly (as does banana in baked goods). See you at the next Fiesta! x

  • olivesandfeta 8th March 2019 at 11:21

    Pancakes are so versatile. It’s great to see they work out without eggs.

    • Laurena@LifeDietHealth 8th March 2019 at 16:51

      Thanks, Yes, I would never have thought of that! All those wasted times we could have made them but didn’t! ๐Ÿ˜›
