Shane's Vegan Pancakes

This past Tuesday was Pancake Day in the UK and I was excited to make a vegan version with Shane. It wasn't until later in the day that I realized I had made plans with friends that night to go for a meal and catch a movie. I asked Shane if we could make them later in the week and the answer I got was "Nope, it's pancake day!". So, I missed out on trying these on actual pancake day but Shane made them again tonight with special toppings, one had peanut butter and bananas, and the other one had lots of berries. These pancakes are fluffy like the American ones and very yummy! I tried them on their own, just to make sure it wasn't the toppings that were making them so good but even with vegan butter these pancakes were tasty.  Try out the recipe below to make 4 large pancakes.

1 cup flour
2 tbsp baking powder
1 1/2 tbsp sugar
1/8 tsp salt
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 cup soy milk
1 tsp ground cinnamon, optional

  1. Take a medium bowl and combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add in the ground cinnamon if desired. Mix together well.
  2. Now add soy milk and oil to the above mixture. Mix well until the liquids are fully incorporated and the batter becomes smooth.
  3. Heat a large non-stick pan medium heat.
  4. Use a ladle and drop about 1/4 cup of batter at a time in the pan to form a pancake.
  5. When you see bubbles in the middle of the pancake, turn the pancake over with a spatula. Cook for a further minute or two and it should be done.



  1. Wow, that looks so light and fluffy. yum!
