You know when you’re making pancakes and the first one always (ALWAYS!) turns out bad? Well, I don’t wanna brag or anything but last week I managed (for the first time ever!) to not mess up a single pancake! Whooohoooo!!!
I’m not sure if it’s because I’ve had more practice in making pancakes or if it’s this recipe I came up with or if it’s my absolutely amazing non-stick pan but it definitely felt good. 😛
So today I wanna share with you my new favorite recipe, I could honestly have this every morning.
I don’t even think it’s too unhealthy because I’m using whole wheat (spelt) flour, only a small amount of sugar and very little oil.
Anyways, here’s what you’ll need:
- 100g whole-wheat flour
- 30g sugar
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp no egg (egg replacement for 1 egg)
- 200ml non-sweetened plant-based milk
- 200g strawberries (fresh or frozen)
- 2 tsp agave syrup
- about 5 tbsp water
First you gotta combine all the dry ingredients in a big bowl and then slowly mix in the “milk” using a whisk. And voilà, here’s your finished pancake batter. Now I know this is not the most sophisticated recipe out there but it’s fast, easy and it tastes really good!
I always like to use a small ladle to get the batter into the pan. Speaking of pan, you should make sure yours is non-stick. I’ve tried making vegan pancakes in “normal” pans and it never worked. Also, with a non-stick pan you can use way less fat which is awesome, I usually only use a teaspoon of oil for 7-8 pancakes!
So heat up your non-stick pan, put a little bit of oil into it (maybe spread the oil using a piece of paper towel) and when your pan is hot put in one ladle full of batter.
The right time to flip the pancake is usually when there are tons of bubbles forming on the top. For me that’s about one minute after I put it in.
Cut your strawberries into halves and put them in a small pan, add the agave syrup and the water and let them simmer for a few minutes (until the sauce starts to thicken).
Now you just gotta put it all on a plate and make it instagram ready!
Hope you enjoy your pancakes, or as we say in Austria: Mahlzeit!
