Another Diamond Day!
Ok, the recipe is from the book Vegan Yum Yum by Lauren Ulm and it's called Weekend Pancakes Made Easy. The reason it's easy is because she puts it all in a blender (starting with the wet ingredients and then adding the dry) but I don't have a blender, so I whisked it in a bowl and started with the dry ingredients and added the wet. So here goes:
Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl - one and a third cups of flour (I used a self raising, although Lauren also goes for spelt), one tablespoon sugar, 1 teaspoon baking poweder and a quarter of a teaspoon of salt.
Then add the wet ingredients which are one and a half cups of soy milk, two tablespoons of oil, 1 teaspoon of extract (I went for vanilla) and then whisk it all up. If it seems to thick you can add water, although I think it is meant to be quite thick so it will make those yummy thick American style pancakes.
That's the mixing done, then you just need to cook them, heat up some oil and ladle some batter in to the frying pan, you'll know it's ready to turn when the edges get a darker yellow and bubbles form on the top. Lauren says that she makes her pancakes about 3 inches in diameter and I guess that's about the same size as mine too.
I made six pancakes out of the batter and kept them warm in a really low oven until we were ready to eat them. We ate them with vegan margarine and syrup (golden for Bert, Maple for me), they are also really delicious with a bit of vegan bacon on the top.
