When it comes to pancakes vs waffles, I will always choose waffles… I love the crispiness that you get from the perfect waffles. (I have a recipe for vegan waffles, HERE).
But when it comes to pancakes… I want them fluffy.
When I was younger I used to eat these mini, store bought fluffy pancakes with Nutella and whipped cream and it was just about the best thing I knew. It was a treat that I would get once a week (or less often) and no homemade pancakes beat those store bought ones.
Though…. It has been about 15 years since I last ate those pancakes and from my memory… these are pretty close to those pancakes I ate as a child. Though of course vegan and homemade, which is much better!
The key to the fluffiness is the baking powder… without the baking powder they won’t really rise or turn out fluffy.
You can of course add chocolate chips or maybe blueberries to the mix for some extra flavour. I just used the chocolate chips I had at home.
This recipe only requires a few simple ingredients which I am sure you all have at home.
(Note* I am sure you could “Healthify” these pancakes in some way… but let’s be honest… if you want real American pancakes you might as well just use flour and sugar as that is how American pancakes are made. So if you want other pancakes made from oatflour (recipe here) or almond flour or no flour at all (?), then you will have to find another recipe.
If you make these pancakes, let me know what you think 😊
Recipe for 2 servings:
1tbsp baking powder
2 tsp vanilla sugar
250ml plantbased milk
150ml water or aquafaba
Vegan margarine to fry in.
Begin by mixing together the flour, baking powder, sugar and vanilla sugar. Then add the plantbased milk and water. Mix until well combined and you get a pancake like consistency. Note, they will be a little thicker in consistency than if making crepes or larger pancakes.
I also personally think this batter works better to make smaller, fluffier pancakes and not large ones.
Fry in some vegan margarine, around 3-4 minutes on each side.
Eat warm with some chocolate chips, vegan whipped cream and berries!!
