This pancake recipe, I dare say, is my new favourite! They’re crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside, and taste and smell like churros. What more could you ask for in a pancake?

What you need for these Churro Pancakes:

  • one egg
  • milk
  • oil
  • maple syrup
  • vanilla
  • all-purpose flour
  • baking pwoder
  • cinnamon
  • fine salt

How do I make these gluten free?

It’s easy! Just use gluten free all-purpose flour, ideally one with with xanthan gum (this helps it holds its structure).

How do I make these vegan?

Replace the egg with one flax egg (1 tbsp ground flaxseed + 2 1/2 tbsp water, let sit for 5 minutes until gel-like).

Description

Super delicious and fluffy pancakes that taste and smell like churros! What more could you ask for in a pancake? Vegan and gluten free options in the Notes section below.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cup milk of choice
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp fine salt

Instructions

  1. In a medium-large bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, oil, maple syrup, and vanilla until well combined.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. 
  3. Add the dry ingredients to the bowl with the wet, and gently stir, leaving some lumps (do not over mix! lumps are a good thing!).
  4. Heat a large pan to medium heat and grease with a bit of oil or butter. Spoon out the batter onto the pan to form pancakes (this makes 9 pancakes total, so 3 batches of 3 is probably best). 
  5. Cook until golden brown on the bottom and all bubbles have popped. Flip and cook until golden brown again. 
  6. Serve warm with some maple syrup, nut butter, and/or fruit. Enjoy!
