As you will have noticed from my sugar bush post, there were these cute looking pancakes on the plate. Well, today I thought would be a good time to share the recipe with you just in time for Easter brunch. These pancakes will seriously fool your family members and/or friends into thinking they are not vegan. You can easily double or triple the ratios below to make a bigger batch, the measurements below usually feed 2 people, unless all you are eating are the pancakes. What’s great about them is that they don’t make a huge mess in your kitchen, which is great if many of you are cooking at the same time to put together a brunch. All you’ll need is a blender and a frying pan…seriously. Simply add your plant-based milk and vinegar in the blender and let the milk curdle for about 5-10 minutes. This process will mimic buttermilk. Then, once the time has elapsed, add in all of the remaining ingredients and blend away! This ensures you have an extremely smooth batter, which in my opinion is key. I loooove my pancakes really thin (as pictured). If you prefer them thick, adjust your liquid ratio to your liking.
You can then decide to eat them as is (with maple syrup of course, that goes without saying) or to top them with your favourite ingredients. In this case, I went for reduced blueberries (simply cook down some fresh of frozen blueberries in a small sauce pan) and some powdered sugar.
Happy Easter everyone!
- 1¼ cup cashew milk, unsweetened
- 1 tbs white vinegar
- 1 cup all-purpose flour (or other flour of choice)
- 1 tbs sugar of choice, I used white sugar
- 2 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp liquid vanilla
- ⅛ tsp salt (optional)
- Place the milk and vinegar in a blender and let it sit for about 5-10 minutes. You will see the milk separate (curdle) after 5 or so minutes, this means the process of creating some vegan buttermilk is working.
- Add all of the remaining ingredients and blend until the batter is smooth.
- Heat up a frying pan to low-medium heat.
- Add mixture to the pan and create small pancakes of about 3-4 inches wide and flip them once the holes on top of the pancakes don't close up anymore.
- Repeat until you're out of batter!
