Vegan Pancakes - Learn How to Make

Classic Vegan Pancakes

These vegan pancakes contain 6 ingredients: non-dairy milk, baking powder, sugar, flour, vanilla, and a little bit of oil for the pan. They are very easy to prepare and are ready in 15 minutes. 

The ingredients have no animal protein or fat in them, making them perfect for vegans. The easiest most common way of serving would be with vegan butter and maple syrup, along with the fruit of your choice.

If you’re just shifting to a vegan lifestyle, you might think pancakes have to contain milk and eggs. The truth is that you might have some experimenting to do in order to be able to make good pancakes without eggs, but the process is the same. 

You will use the same main ingredients and just leave the eggs out, and replace classic milk with a vegan version. Flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, oil, and non-dairy milk is all you need. Clean up is also very easy as you need just one bowl to mix them everything up.

The key ingredient for fluffy pancakes is the baking powder. The batter rises because of the baking powder, making your vegan pancakes tender and fluffy. And no, there’s not too much baking powder in the recipe. Considering that you will not use eggs, you have to compensate for their lack of baking powder. Any less of it, and they won’t rise.

Replacing the oil with applesauce is an option. However, the result may be a little different. Your pancakes might not be as fluffy as they are originally intended to be.

Tips for Making These Light and Fluffy Vegan Pancakes

Be patient. After mixing all your ingredients together, let it sit for about 5 minutes. This will allow the baking powder to begin working. Use medium heat when cooking your pancakes.

Patience is needed again when you’re cooking them, wait for about 5 minutes to flip them. Look for bubbles forming, and cooked edges then flip so the other side can cook as well. 

Use a good frying pan that pancakes won’t stick to it.

Vegan pancakes can be very delicious, too; there is no absolute need to add eggs and cow milk. 

Coconut milk is a fatty vegan milk, so it will substitute for the fat in cow milk, and eggs can be easily replaced with a larger amount of baking powder. The other ingredients can be kept just as they are in original pancake recipes. Enjoy!
