Breakfast during Passover can be challenging. If you and your kids want to change the routine and have pancakes instead of plain matzo, I have the perfect recipe for you and it’s parve (non-dairy) too! Plus, I am guessing that you already have these ingredients at home, and that just makes whipping up these Passover pancakes even more appealing. :)
If you’re wondering about using baking powder during Passover, (which my pancake recipe does call for) I will explain a bit about that. Tons of Kosher websites have dissected this issue at length, so is baking powder Kosher for Passover? Baking powder is mineral based and not grain based, therefore it isn’t “chametz”, like the food that is banned to eat during Passover. However, there are plenty of baking powder brands that you can use in your recipes during this holiday. So as long as the baking powder is kosher hechsher, you are good to go. Although I am guessing that most people choose to use baking powder out of preference. If you’re still on the fence on making this delicious pancake recipe, then you can save it for after the holiday but in my opinion, you’re in the clear!
I like my pancakes when they’re not so sweet so I only add 1 tablespoon of sugar to the batter. I usually serve pancakes with maple syrup, which is sweet enough, so I do not think you need the pancakes itself to be so sweet. Of course you can add more or less sugar by your taste. And to make this breakfast a little bit healthy, I added chopped fruit on top of the pancakes.
