I don't know what it is about the human body that fascinates me so much, but it really is so interesting. I have recently developed an intolerance to eggs... yes eggs, the main ingredient in most breakfast combinations. It just crept up on me over the last two months, and now I am full blown allergic, my body just does not want to accept my love for them. They say your body regenerates every seven years to the point that you are a brand new person, and if this is true, I definitely felt a change because now certain foods are no longer allowed in my diet.
Hence, egg-less chocolate pancakes! Thank goodness I am not allergic to chocolate (yet). So this recipe was very simple to make and the rich cocoa flavour comes through beautifully (I used the Nomu cocoa powder). When you remove a staple from a basic recipe, like eggs, it should be advised that the end result will be different to the norm. Therefore, these pancakes are a lot more moist inside and could even be had as a dessert. I really love them, and the texture is just delicious! I hope you like it too!
Recipe: "Egg-less" pancakes
1 cup cake flour
1/2 cup castor sugar
1/4 cup sunflower oil
1 cup of milk
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla essence
Put all the ingredients into a mixer, and mix on a medium speed until the ingredients are well combined.
Let the mixture stand for 15 minutes.
Fry the pancakes in coconut oil.
When they become bubbly on top, then they are ready to flip.
Dust with castor sugar, and enjoy!
