Definitely not weight loss related but yesterday was pancake day. I’ve tried a few different recipes for vegan pancakes since going vegan and while they’ve all been okay, none have been really knock out. That is until these. Even my highly fussy non-vegan husband thought these were delicious.
This recipe is for the larger style of pancakes, the type that require flipping. However, I am a coward when it comes to flipping (plus I’m paranoid my frying pan handle will break off, that has happened once before) so I tend to use a slice to turn them. This recipe will make 8 large pancakes, of which we all had 2 each. One serving was around 250 calories, so not all that bad diet wise either.
- 240g Plain Flour
- 1.3 tsp of Baking Powder
- 1 and 1/3 cups of Soya Milk
- 3/4 cup of Water
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 1/4 tsp salt
Sift together the dry ingredients, then add the wet. Really simple. I then whisked for a few minutes just to make sure all the flour was mixed in properly. If the mixture is a little thick (it should be pourable) add more milk.
Heat a frying pan and brush with vegetable oil, or use fry light. Heat up to pretty hot. I then used a ladle and used just over one ladle full per pancake. Fry for a few minutes on each side. If there was one complaint with them is that they didn’t really brown up but we were hungry so I didn’t overcook and to be honest the paleness did not detract from the flavour at all.
I had lemon and a tsp of sugar with mine, my son and daughter had maple syrup, and husband had dark chocolate buttons and sliced banana.
They really were tasty, I have been made to promise we are having them again at the weekend and I can’t say I’m complaining!
