Vegan pancakes

Pancakes. I simply love pancakes. I think all Canadians like pancakes. 
This is probably the first recipe I learned how to "veganize". I have cooked them that way for many people and was told that it tastes even better than dairy version of it... So I think you should give it a try.

Here is the recipe (from "Vegan with a Vengeance" by Isa Chandra Moskowirz):

  • 150g plain flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons rapeseed oil (any mild tasting vegetable oil will do) + oil for the pan
  • 5 tablespoons water
  • 300ml plain rice or soy milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoon pure maple syrup

- Oil a large frying pan and preheat over medium-high heat about 2 minutes

- Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon (if using).

- In a separate bowl, combine all the other ingredients.

- Adding wet ingredients to dry, mix until just combined. Do not overmix or the pancakes will be tough; a couple of    lumps are ok.

Enjoy! :)

So, yes it was another post about cooking... but I want to make sure to mention that next week, is the "World Go Vegan" week. From the 21st October until the 31st, you might see a few vegan items on sale here and there as well as some new menus in some restaurants. Why not try some? 

You can read more about it here on this fantastic website:

Wishing you all a lovely week!

  2. I love pancakes too! You must be so good at cooking.

  3. I'll have to try that! Always the good Canadian, I do indeed love pancakes, and make them almost every weekend. Have you been able to get real maple syrup in the UK???

  4. Pancakes, oh how I love thee ;)
    I'll have to give this recipe a try someday. Ground cinnamon is always a good addition to pancake batter... heck, it's a good addition to almost anything!
