If you are looking for a somewhat easier and more convenient recipe, vegan pancakes should be your choice. Here is how you can prepare this simple yet delicious dish for a family dinner.
Self-raising flour, baking powder, vanilla extract, vegetable cooking oil, plant-based milk, optional: maple syrup, blueberries, vegan chocolate chips, plant-based yogurt
Put flour, baking powder, vanilla extract, sugar, and a pinch of salt in a bowl and whisk it using a balloon whisk. Keep adding the milk slowly until you get a smooth thick batter.
Use a non-stick pan to heat a little oil over medium-low flame. Use two tablespoons of batter to make one pancake at a time. Wait for the edges and bubble to appear before you flip it. Each side will take 2-3 minutes to get cooked.
You can serve them with any topping of your choice.
