So… I have been missing in action!
5 years ago my whole family and I went vegetarian… then vegan shortly after. I lost my blogging mojo as I was unsure anyone would be interested in plant based food. Turns out I was wrong! I have continued to share bits and pieces on my instagram page and turns out several people are enjoying this new journey.
I have left some old popular non vegan recipes on the blog. I will be “veganising them” too for the benefit of those who follow a plant based lifestyle, have egg and dairy allergies or wish to increase they vegetable intake,
So, being a Fri-YAY and my middle boy loves his fluffy pancakes every Friday! The look on his face when he comes down for breakfast is priceless!
EGG and DAIRY Free Pancakes
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon white sugar
2 flax eggs (2 tbs ground flax plus 5tbs water)
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
330 ml plant milk (we use soya milk)
225g plain flour (we prefer wholemeal flour)
1 teaspoon oil for frying (you only need it for the first pancake, the rest will fry ok with no extra oil)
1. In a bowl, mix the dry ingredients and make a well. Beat in the wet ingredients
2. Heat lightly oiled pan (with the teaspoon oil) and ladle pancake batter in small quantities (about 4-5 tablespoons per pancake)
3. When the pancake batter starts to bubble it is time to flip onto the other side
