Vegan Pancake Day


I can't believe that I nearly forgot that tomorrow is Shrove Tuesday, also known to many as Pancake Day. I really don't need any excuses to eat and enjoy some pancakes but for some reason they're not something I make very often. Note to self - I must start eating more pancakes! (Hmm, or maybe not if I want my body Ibiza ready by June!)

Anyway, I wanted to share my super quick and easy vegan pancake recipe with you all today so that you have plenty of time to get your ingredients in for tomorrow. I personally love mine with strawberries and maple syrup so I have included these within the ingredients list but i've also provided you with some other vegan friendly pancake toppings at the end too.

When I first tried these pancakes a coupe of years ago I just couldn't believe that they are dairy free and basically taste exactly the same as regular pancakes. It's pretty amazing!   

This recipe makes approx 9 pancakes...(but no one says you have to share them!)

150g plain flour
2 tablespoons caster sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
300ml water
1 tablespoon vegetable oil 
Strawberries
100% maple syrup
Icing sugar 

Sift the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt into a large bowl.

Whisk the water and oil together in a separate small bowl.

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir util blended. If it's slightly lumpy thats ok!

Heat a lightly oiled frying pan over medium heat and drop in the batter by large spoonfuls.

Cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry then flip the pancake over onto the other side.

Repeat with remaining batter. 

Finish by topping with strawberries, maple syrup & icing sugar.

YUMMY!

  
Alternatively you could try a traditional favourite and add lemon juice & sugar. If you love your fruit you could add sultanas to the mix and load them on top with some bananas and blueberries too. Other vegan favourites include baked apple with cinnamon, vegan squirty cream and dark chocolate chips, or why not try making up your own vegan version of Nutella by using this really great recipe

The choices are really endless when it comes to pancakes and I love to experiment with different toppings. I know some people who also enjoy making up savoury versions but personally they've always been a sweet treat for me!

Whenever I am lacking in food inspo Instagram is always my go to place and  you only have to search #veganpancakes to see the huge variety of choices out there! (warning this will make your mouth water!)    

Let me know if you have a go at making these tomorrow and i'd love to see some photos of your creations so feel free to email me or send me a tweet

What are your favourite vegan pancakes?   

Have a 'flipping' happy vegan Pancake Day everyone!
