hey guys! I picked up some aunt jemima ww pancake mix. Im new to veganism soo how can i add the milk and eggs? I understand i can do soymilk but i do not have any of that enr g egg replace (sp?) I read somewhere you can use mashed banana or applesauce? If so, what would be equaled to one egg? Thank you, i plan on having a tasty brunch tomorrow afternoon <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lick:"><br><br><br><br>

I don't know about the flavors..you'd probably have to call the company if you wanted to know for sure.<br><br><br><br>
But, wrt the egg thing..I don't think you'd have to add any egg replacement at all. I make pancakes fairly frequently with just flour, baking powder, a smidge of sugar, and lots of soymilk. They fry up quite rightly. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> I think the fruit would probably make them very dense/heavy.

With my homemade quick mix, sometimes i've used an egg replacer and sometimes I don't. Either way, it comes out good. Though... at least for me, I like putting it a bit of pear or apple sauce. It softens the texture. But again, your mileage may vary. Especially with the mix you have in hand. (I don't know their ingredients.)<br><br><br><br>
Should you desire to use an apple or pear sauce, approx 1/4 cup of sauce equals about one egg as per normal baking/cooking recipes.<br><br><br><br>
I use about 1/2 cup per 3 cups of quick mix and then I add my rice milk until the proper texture of the batter is achieved. (I also like tossing in a bit of cinn., vanilla and some sucanat in to the mix for extra flavor.) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

I would assume "natural" butter flavour would come from something dairy. You should call Aunt Jemima and ask.<br><br><br><br>
Making pancakes from scratch is insanely simple. Check out the cookbook How it All Vegan. It has several vegan pancake recipes.

thanks for the responses guys.<br><br><br><br>
The butter flavors actually come from my syrup <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

You could get real maple syrup!<br><br><br><br>
<<thinks syrup is gross and ruins otherwise perfectly good breakfast treats like french toast, waffles, and pancakes. Strawberries are way better. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">
