Breakfast ingredients :: Accidentally Vegan pancakes.



S T A C K   +   D R I Z Z L E .

The joys of this pancake recipe were revealed to me this weekend, and quite by accident.

I’d woken up on Sunday with a hankering for proper American pancakes, and then realised that tragedy had struck and we were out of eggs! I turned straight to my phone to look up ideas for egg-free pancake recipes (nothing *too* virtuous- it was a Sunday, after all!, and came across this promising looking one from Food Hero.

‘Let’s give it a go’ I thought, ‘they might turn out alright!’ and headed downstairs to the kitchen…

And the results, it turned out, were better than just ‘alright’. These are easily some of the tastiest pancakes I’ve ever, EVER had!

The texture is lighter than light, and reminds me of the delicious Scotch pancakes I used to eat toasted and spread with butter as a post-school snack as a child. And even though I used almond milk in place of cow’s milk (hence the ‘accidental vegan-ness’ of this recipe) and they’re without the usual egg or two you’d find in an American pancake recipe, they rise like a dream!

In fact, they feel positively virtuous compared to the pancakes I’d usually treat myself to on a Sunday, when the mood strikes!

But enough of the chat, because I’m sure you’re convinced. Let’s get to the recipe!

Recipe tweaked (minimally) from Food Hero. Serves two. Or one, whatever floats your boat…

1 1/4 cup plain flour
1tbsp baking powder
1tbsp sugar
Pinch salt
1 cup almond milk (though any non-dairy milk would work, I should think)
2tbsp vegetable/melted coconut oil
1tsp vanilla extract
2-3 extra tbsp almond milk to thin the mixture as necessary

- Whisk together the dry ingredients in a large bowl, and then add in the almond milk, oil, and vanilla and whisk again until just combined.

- Add in the extra almond milk a tablespoon at a time until you’ve achieved a smooth dropping consistency.

- Heat a small amount of coconut oil or vegetable oil a large non-stick frying pan set over a medium flame, and then spoon in rounds of the batter a couple of tablespoons at a time.

- Cook for a minute or so, until bubbles form on the top of the pancake and the underside is set, then flip and cook until the second side is golden.

- Serve with syrup, yoghurt, fresh fruit, and/or compote! (To make the compote shown here, simply soften a couple of handfuls of frozen summer berries in a small pan with a splash of syrup to take away the tartness!)

    These look so good! These could actually come in pretty handy because we tend to either forget to buy eggs or eat them all before the weekend! Thanks for sharing!

    I make my pancakes out of millet instead of flour too :)

  • Jen | Beautiful Junk

    Ah, nothing is better than pancakes on a Sunday morning! :)
    Another tip for next time… you can always replace an egg with a chia or flax egg. Mix 1 tbsp chia or ground flax with 3 tbsp water, let it sit for about 15 minutes and voila, you have an egg! It works great in pretty much all baking.

    These look so tasty! Might have a crack at making some while my boyfriend’s away this weekend!

    I can’t believe these turned out so well, and vegan! I tried to make some banana and egg protein pancakes in the past and they were a total flop, will be giving these a go!

    The vegan pancakes turned out to be so delicious and tempting. This pancake is perfect with syrup and fresh fruit. Thank you very much, Rosie.

  • Laura

    Oh they look perfect Rosie… whenever I try a pancake stack things always go a little bit ‘Leaning Tower of Pisa’. Love the idea that these don’t need eggs too.
