Vegan Pancake Recipe

  • 200ml/7fl oz soya milk
  • Sunflower oil

1) Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth and well combined.

2) Heat a little oil in a frying pan and tip the pan so the oil coats the whole bottom of the pan.

3) Pour some of the batter into the pan (the amount depends on how large and thick you want the finished pancake to be) Tilt the pan so the batter spreads over the bottom.

4) Once you can lift the edges of the pancake it is ready to be turned over using a pan slice, palette knife or similar. Cook the second side and serve.

      I have made bread rolls using apple sauce and they were nice before but never tried anything else. I make my pancakes with gluten free flour as well as my son and I are wheat intolerant and have found them easier to cook than regular ones as they stick less and are less fragile. Think I will try apple sauce next time. Thanks for the tip :)

      One of my favorite vegan snacks is hummus on Ezekiel bread. (though peanut butter is also good on it). Also, vegan pancakes can also be made with applesauce in place of the eggs. They tend to be a bit denser than regular pancakes, but they're just as delicious.
