Plain Pancakes

Yesterday was my two-year veganniversary (three years not eating meat!). So, to celebrate, I bought myself Vegan With A Vengeance and got my pancake apron on.

{150g} plain flour, sifted
{2 tsp} baking powder
{1/2 tsp} sea salt
{1 tsp} cinnamon
{2 tbsp} grapeseed oil
{5 tbsp} water
{300 ml} unsweetened soya milk
{1 tsp} vanilla extract

Sift and mix together the plain flour, baking powder, and cinnamon. Add salt. In a different bowl, combine all other ingredients. Pour the wet mixture over the dry, and whisk up with a fork until just combined. Go for a few flour lumps rather than overmixing.

Heat up a skillet with a little oil spray for about 2 minutes. Cook pancakes until they start to bubble and slip easily in the pan. Then flip! Don't be shy. It's 15% technique, 85% confidence. Alternatively, carefully use a spatula. Brown off both sides and serve with lashings of maple syrup.
