Eggless pancakes

Today I set out to make pancakes, and realized that I had run out of eggs.

So I hunted around for an eggless pancake recipe, and found this.

2 cups flour
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 Tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3 Tbsp oil
1 1/2-2 cups water

Combine all dry ingredients with a fork. Add wet ingredients, and pour in the water slowly as you mix, until it reaches a pourable consistency.

I suppose you could use milk instead of water, but I'm stingy with milk in cooking. The pancakes turned out just fine. If I had added a bit of cinnamon, they would have tasted just like the ones I usually make.

I'm poking around to see if it's possible to make an eggless cake, but the various vegan recipes I'm finding all look completely revolting. I think I'll just stick with regular egg-full cakes, once I get some more. :-)

Side note: Anybody notice that in order to eat vegan, you have to eat a lot of super-processed soy products? Isn't that kind of ... missing the point? I'd rather eat natural milk and eggs rather than processed man-made bizarre bean derivatives.

Hey sweet! Now I've got one for when I run out of eggs too. There used to be someone I knew who was allergic to eggs and had to find all kinds of other ways to make/eat things. I guess people tend to take eggs for granted until you don't have any.

My grandpa occasionally substitutes water for eggs if he runs out while making pancakes. The danger is that they sometimes come out flat and... 'juicy' is the only term I can think that matches. :P
Yours on the other hand sound very tasty.
