In the past, I have experimented with and tried various vegan and vegetarian recipes but ultimately they fail at one of two criteria for pancake goodness: (1) consistent fluffy texture or (2) the taste.
Fear not, fellow pancake aficionados. I have found such a heavenly and divine recipe that you’d think the pancake gods themselves created it for vegans.
All you’ll need is:
- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, sifted. (sometimes I add a bit of cornmeal or oat flour for a heartier flavor.)
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 2 tsp baking power
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 1/4 cups water/rice milk– I usually add a little bit more, but very litte so the mixture doesn’t turn runny.
- Non-stick cooking spray
Mix all of the dry ingredients in a bowl, then incorporate the water and whisk thoroughly. I
tend to add a little bit more flour and baking powder to reach a slightly thicker batter while I whisk.
Set your skillet to a medium temperature, and spray the pan. Ladle the mixture in 3-4 inch pancakes (I enjoy making multiple small pancakes for breakfast) and let cook until golden on both sides. Serve with syrup and/or nuts and fresh fruits.
I also toast nuts like almonds and pecans separately in a pan with some cooking spray or with the oven to sprinkle over the cakes along with granola or oats.
