Recipe: Eggless Pumpkin Pancakes with Cinnamon

Crepes, pancakes and tortillas with spices
November 16, 2010

Chickpeas flour is perfect as egg substitute, as I told you in the recipe Eggless Omelette Sandwich with Basil: just use 50g of chickpeas flour with 50ml of water for each egg.
I didn't use water to prepare these spicy pancakes, because the pumpkin pulp was quite soft.

The pancakes can be served with honey for a sweet dish, or with melted cheese.

Now that s an interesting thing about substituting eggs. Is it applicable to all sweet recipes that require eggs? I love your pancakes.

Chickpea flour (or besan) is an interesting ingredient. I use that trick for omelettes or similar recipes, I haven t tried to substitute in desserts yet.

Voglio provare fare dei pancakes senza uova, con le fave, ma non mi piace la farina di ceci purtroppo :(

Ciao Brii, io amo molto la farina di ceci e la uso come sostitutivo, però tutti i legumi sono addensanti, fai un po di prove, magari aggiungendo solo poca farina di ceci (con il gusto forte delle fave probabilmente non si sentirà!). Fammi sapere!
