Using Buttermilk Pancake Mix Without Eggs - Substitutes for People with Allergies

Buttermilk pancake mix makes it easy to cook this dish for breakfast. It is also easy to have one as a snack in the night while you are studying or doing other work. When using pancake mix, consumers often add fruit and other ingredients to suit their taste.

Sometimes men and women want to make this type of pancake without using eggs. This may be because they don’t like eggs, run out of eggs, are vegan or are allergic to eggs. Both adults and children can have egg allergies.

There are cases where individuals don’t immediately realize that they are having a bad reaction to the proteins in this food. They may attribute the symptoms of an egg allergy, such as coughing or nasal inflammation, to something else.

There are several different brands of pancake mix which are popular. These are used for making buttermilk pancakes, waffles and regular pancakes. They include:
1. Robby’s
2. Bob’s Red Mill Organic 7 Grain
3. Golden Malted
4. Stonewall Kitchen Farmhouse
5. Kodiak Cakes
6. Krusteaz
7. Arrowhead Mills
8. Fiber One

These already contain dry ingredients such as wheat flour, milk, cornmeal, malt, sugar and salt. In some cases, you add eggs, butter and water to the pancake mix. However some already come with egg whites and buttermilk powder added and you just need to add water.

If you don’t want to use eggs, using a teaspoon of baking powder and a teaspoon of baking soda for every 2 cups of flour will help your pancakes to be light. You can also use baking powder and mashed bananas as an egg substitute in buttermilk pancake mix.

The best bananas to use for this purpose are those that have started to develop brown flecks. Those are sweet. Using baking powder will make your pancakes soft and fluffy. You won’t really miss the eggs, especially if you decide to add sweet, soft, ripe bananas.
