My Go-To Pancakes

Sunday mornings in the Buswell household are usually our ‘treat breakfast.’ Which calls for my homemade pancakes; they are so quick and easy to make and they are delicious!

Our usual tradition is normally croissants but because I am slowly converting my diet to a plant-based/vegan one, I decided to start trying different recipes a few times a week.
These pancakes are still delicious so don’t be put off by the lack of eggs and milk, when made properly they are almost exactly like the real deal.

Go-To Pancakes

Makes: 5 large or 10 small (depending on how much mix you use)
Time: approx 30 minutes
These can be made by hand or in a blender, but I used my NutriNinja for quickness. 
1 1/4 cups of plain flour
2-4tbsps white sugar (depending on how sweet you want them to be)
2tsps baking powder
1/2tsp salt
1 1/4 cups water
1tbsp oil

(If using a blender, mix all the ingredients together to quickly make the batter. You may need to stop and mix occasionally as the flour sometimes gets stuck at the bottom.)
1. Sift the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt into a large bowl.
2. Whisk the water and oil in a small bowl.
3. Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the water and oil mixture. Stir until blended; mix will be slightly lumpy but don’t worry!
4. Heat a little oil (I used coconut oil) in a pan or griddle on a medium-high heat.

I’m quite a messy cook so I’ve done pretty well hiding the state of the kitchen from the photos!
5. Pour your desired amount of batter into the pan and cook until bubbles appear and the edges are dry. Flip and cook the other side.

6. Repeat throughout the mixture.
You may not want to eat them all at once, unless you’re feeling hungry. So they can be frozen for another time.

Mum and I shared the batch of 10 that we made for breakfast this morning. I topped mine with syrup and mum had one of our fancy jams. 
There are so many toppings you could use: fresh fruit, yoghurt, melted chocolate or traditional lemon and sugar. You could even make them savoury for a snack or a different take on breakfast.

You don’t know how badly I wanted to eat these after I took about a hundred photographs. But it was definitely worth the wait. They were delicious!
Until next time,
