Fluffy Vanilla Vegan Pancakes

Happy pancake day peeps. If you’re after a simple pancake recipe that’s light, fluffy and gets the job done, look no further. Chances are you already have all the ingredients at home, making this perfect if you find yourself in the “I-forgot-today-is-pancake-day” camp. 

These pancakes turned out pillow soft thanks to the vegan buttermilk, in combination with the self-raising flour. Remember that you can create your own self-raising flour by combining plain flour with baking powder. Another tip for making sure the pancakes are fluffy is to combine the wet and dry ingredients gently. Do not over mix or mix too vigorously. If there are still a few small lumps, that's perfectly okay.

Basic as this pancake recipe is, you can top it as you wish and get creative. Fresh fruits, syrup, chocolate, nuts, seeds, yoghurt or ice cream... choose your fighters.

🥞 Recipe (makes 12):

• 2 cups unsweetened soya milk 

• 1 tbsp lemon juice or apple cider vinegar 

• 1 tbsp vanilla extract 

• 1 tbsp sunflower oil (plus extra for frying)

• 4 tbsp sugar (I used coconut sugar but any type will do)

• 2 cups self-raising flour

• pinch of salt

🥞 Method:

1. Mix the soya milk and lemon juice (or apple cider vinegar) together in a large mixing bowl and leave to rest for 5 minutes.

2. Whisk in the vanilla, sunflower oil and sugar. 

3. Add the flour and salt. Mix gently until well combined; it’s okay if there are a few small lumps.

4. Heat a small amount of oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Scoop the pancake batter in and cook until bubbles form around the edges or on top. Flip over and cook the other side for another 2-3 minutes.

5. Serve with any toppings of your choice. I went for vegan yoghurt, jam, banana, crushed peanuts and a little drizzle of brown rice syrup.
