Shrove Tuesday is when pancakes are traditionally eaten, also known as Pancake Tuesday! Traditionally, Shrove Tuesday is marked as a day of feasting and celebrating the day before Ash Wednesday. Growing up my family turned Pancake Tuesday into every Tuesday and it was something I always looked forward to. Often, pancakes are eaten for breakfast but on Pancake Tuesday you can enjoy them for dinner without any judgment!
Boxed pancake mix is easy but I believe nothing quite compares to delicious homemade pancakes! Unfortunately, many recipes, including the boxed variety, require eggs, milk or other ingredients that are not vegan-friendly. We have searched for some of the best pancake recipes that are all vegan-approved! We’ll also include a few vegan waffle and crepe’s recipes for variety. Lastly, we’ve also included some excellent vegan-friendly topping ideas that will really enhance your Pancake Tuesday experience!
Mastering a homemade vegan pancake might seem like a tricky thing to do. You want to ensure that you achieve the perfect fluffy texture and the right flavor and that can seem impossible without ingredients like eggs. Rest assured it can be done!
I’ve been making vegan pancakes for a couple years now and let me tell you, they are unreal! This recipe requires simple ingredients, with items you’ll most likely have on hand.

Perhaps you prefer thin luscious crepes over pancakes! We believe crepes should be accepted on Pancake Tuesday too! If you aren’t a seasoned crepe-maker then it’s easy to get intimidated. However, this recipe explains how it’s actually quite easy and they will require even less time than a traditional pancake recipe.
This recipe requires simple ingredients. Keep in mind once all the ingredients are mixed, the batter needs to chill in the fridge for about an hour. Then once prepared, serve with your favorite sweet or savory toppings.
