Ingredients

  • 380g plain flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 130g caster sugar
  • 250ml aquafaba (eg OGGS® Egg Alternative Aquafaba)
  • 7 tbsp vegetable oil
  • A squeeze of lemon
  • 150ml dairy-free milk (we love almond or oat milk in this recipe, but all types of milk will work)
  • Margarine, for frying
  • Favourite toppings… fresh fruit, maple syrup, melted chocolate… the options go on and on

Instructions

  1. Combine all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
  2. Next, whisk up your aquafaba in a clean bowl for 30 seconds until it’s pale and frothy and then add the oil, lemon juice and milk.
  3. Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture, little by little, until you’ve made a smooth thick batter.
  4. Rest the pancake batter in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  5. Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and add a knob of margarine. Once melted, add a small ladleful of batter into the frying pan and smooth into a rough round with the back of the ladle.
  6. Wait until the base of the mixture sets and the top begins to bubble before flipping it, then cook until both sides are golden brown. Repeat until all the batter is used up.

Did you know that Vegan Recipe Club is run by a charity?

We create vital resources to help educate everyone – vegan veterans, novices and the v-curious alike – about vegan food, health and nutrition; as well as the plight of farmed animals and the devastating environmental impact of farming.

Through this work we have helped thousands of people discover veganism; but we want to reach millions more! We rely entirely on donations as we don’t get any government funding. If you already support us, thank you from the bottom of our hearts, you are really making a difference! Please share our details with your friends and loved ones too, as every donation enables us to keep fighting for change.
