Mix everything, and add salt 4, the melted butter 5 and the vanilla extract 6. Stir again to obtain a smooth and homogeneous mixture.
Heat a non-stick pan over medium-low heat and grease it with butter 7. Pour a small ladle of batter into the center 8 and spread it slightly with the back of a spoon to make a round shape 9.
When bubbles begin to appear on the surface, turn the pancake with a spatula 10 and cook for a minute on the other side too 11. The total cooking time is about 3 minutes. As they are cooked, stack the egg-free pancakes on a plate and garnish with your favorite ingredients 12!
It is preferable to enjoy the egg-free pancakes as soon as they are ready, but if necessary you can keep them in the refrigerator for up to 2 days in an airtight container and heat them in a pan before serving.
The batter can be made the day before and stored in the refrigerator covered with plastic wrap.
