The Best Whiskey Pancakes

All you need to do is look at the pictures above and you’ll see everything there is to love about these pancakes. If you like the woody flavor of whiskey, you’ll love vegan whiskey pancakes that are a little crispy on the edges, while tender and soft and tasty on the inside. Serving it with oodles of maple syrup helps, too.

Syrup and pancakes go together.

Adee describes this as the perfect pancake. It tastes like the crispy pancakes you’d get at Cracker Barrel or IHOP. So skip IHOP and make these vegan whiskey pancakes for yourself. YAS!

Also, I know whiskey can be spelled in different ways. What I’ve read is the Scots spell it whisky and the Irish spell it whiskey. Guess what? My last name is McMillen which means I’m a little bit of both so, either way, I spell it works.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ tablespoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 cups plant based milk*
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon ground flax seed
  • 2 tablespoon corn starch
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • ½ cup whiskey
  • 2 – 3 teaspoons coconut oil

Instructions

  • In a mixing bowl combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugars. Stir to combine. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl combine the plant-based milk, apple cider vinegar, ground flax seed, cornstarch, water, and vegetable oil. Stir to combine.
  • Gradually add the plant-based milk mixture to the flour mixture, stirring until just combined. It’s ok if there are a few lumps in the batter.
  • Add the whiskey and stir to combine.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Add a little bit of coconut oil (like a half teaspoon or sto the skillet). As it melts be sure it coats the pan. Pour about a quarter cup of the batter at a time on the heated skillet. Cook on one side until the pancake bubbles and the edges lift. That’s a sign to flip the pancakes. Use a spatula to flip the pancakes.
  • Cook on the other side until golden brown. Continue with the remaining batter until all the pancakes are done.
  • Serve with vegan butter and maple syrup.

Notes

* You may want to add a 1/4 cup of additional plant-based milk. You want the batter to be thin.

    This looks so good I am making it right now! Is it really a half tablespoon of salt?

      Hi Amy! Hope you love it as much as we did. Yes, we used a half a tablespoon of salt. However, I’m sure you could reduce that and still get great results. Let me know how it goes!

    I used a half teaspoon and it was yummy! We had issues with getting them to cook evenly, but I attribute that to our griddle and not the recipe.
