When I went vegan after many years of being vegetarian I felt very confident but at the same time I slightly panicked thinking of how I would cook and bake without eggs and milk.
So perhaps you are at that point too and could need some help… for example with a recipe for vegan pancakes? Taddaa! here we go!
BTW there are hundreds and millions of vegan recipes in books, apps, magazines blogs, social medias and all over the internet. So it’s not difficult at all and it’s fun to try out something new. We are constantly learning and growing, right?
Going vegan was one of the best decisions I made in my life and this is what everybody who is living a vegan lifestyle would tell you too. And if you are vegan already you surely know what I am talking about. There is nothing you can do that has comparingly such a positive effect on your life and the invironment – and it just feels so good to nourish your body in a healthy and above all crueltyfree way.
500g all-purpose (or wholemeal) flour
150g raw cane sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract or 1 pack. vanilla sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1tsp baking powder (a mix of tartar/baking soda)
1 tbsp veg. oil
125ml soy milk, sparkling water
you can use any other plant milk, I mostly use a mix of 2 tbsp soy cream and spelt milk because that’s in our fridge often
in a bowl mix the dry ingredients. Add oil and cream and whisk everything with an electric handmixer,
add a good dash of sparkling water and now slowly pour more milk until the batter is creamy.
For fluffy small pancakes the batter should be more on the thicker side and for thin crepes add a little more liquid.
The sparkling water reacts with the baking powder and makes the pancake spongy and fluffy.
Let the batter sit for at least 10min or up to an hour. You can also start baking immediately but the longer you let the batter sit the smoother and more elastic the pancake will be.
Heat a greased non-stick pan, pour some batter and spred it into a circle. Bake from both sides, top with maple syrup, chocolate sauce, PB, yoghurt and fruits or any topping of your choice.
