Directions

10 mins to prep

15 mins to cook

  1. Step 1

    Lightly oil a non-stick frying pan and place over medium-low heat. If you don’t have a non-stick frying pan, use some dairy-free margarine to cook the pancakes, along with a little oil.

  2. Step 2

    Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and cornflour in a mixing bowl. Add a pinch of salt. Gradually whisk in the soy milk, vanilla and the 2 tablespoons vegetable oil until smooth. If you like your pancakes thinner or thicker, add a little more or a little less soy milk, respectively.

  3. Step 3

    Pour about 1/4 - 1/3 cup of pancake batter into the pan. The pancake should start bubbling; flip it over when it’s firm enough to do so.

  4. Step 4

    Cook and flip again, if needed, until golden on both sides. Remove from the pan and keep warm while cooking the remaining pancake batter. You should end up with 6–8 pancakes.

  5. Step 5

    Serve warm, with your choice of toppings.

Hot tip!

The right heat can make all the difference. If your pancakes aren’t bubbling, try turning the heat up slightly; if they are burning, turn the heat down.
