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.

Cinnamon treeA curiosity: this is a cinnamon tree from the Botanical Garden of Catania.

Makes two pancakes:
150g pumpkin pulp
50g chickpeas flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg

Mash the pumpkin with a fork and incorporate the chickpeas flour and the baking powder. Season with the spices.
Heat a frying pan and pour half mixture, then level with a spatula.
Cook for a few minutes until the edges of the pancake rise, then turn it and cook the other side.

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.

ecco lo sapevo io che venire da te, mi avrebbe aiutato!
Voglio provare fare dei pancakes senza uova, con le fave, ma non mi piace la farina di ceci purtroppo :(
Con cosa lo posso sostituire?

Author: Graziana

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!
