Vegan pancakes

PT30M

Pancakes are such a treat, which is totally bizarre given that they’re just fried batter. It shows that pretty much any food can be given an aura of giddy excitement and occasion, so long as you’re only really permitted to eat it once a year.

Anyway, you would have thought that swapping out two thirds of the ingredients from such a simple recipe may, well, completely ruin it.

For this very reason, I assumed pancakes could never be veganised. How wrong I was. Flour, almond milk and oil, it turns out, have exactly the same kind of magic reaction when mixed together as flour, cow's milk and eggs.

The quantity of milk here is very provisional, as with all pancake recipes. I tested a few batches and found the slightly looser mixture easier to handle – these crêpes aren't as sturdy as the non-vegan version, so getting a good pan coverage first-time round was useful.

The only other difference is they take a bit more cooking to achieve a golden hue. But really, once they're slathered in your topping of choice, who cares what colour they are? Enjoy!

Ingredients

Metric

Imperial

  • Vegan crêpes

  • 220g of plain flour
  • 680ml of almond milk, maybe more to loosen
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 5 tbsp of vegetable oil, (or other neutral-flavoured oil) plus extra to cook the pancakes
1
Add the flour and salt to a mixing bowl and make a well in the centre. Gradually pour in the almond milk, whisking as you go until you get a smooth batter
2
Add the oil and whisk until smooth and combined
3
Heat a tiny dash of oil in a non-stick pan. Once hot, add a fine coating of the batter to the bottom and tilt the pan so it spreads out into a nice circle
4
Relax for a few minutes while the batter firms up – when the wobbly softness goes, pop a spatula under an edge to see how its coming along underneath. Once golden on the underside, flip it!
5
Keep cooking until the underside is also golden. Keep a close eye on it as I noticed that this side burnt a lot easier than the first side
6
Move onto a plate and keep warm while you cook the rest. Enjoy!
