Pancakes – Basic Recipe

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Do you love pancakes? I do, my husband does, so it’s always something we are happy to eat. For Pancake Day I would always make lots of different pancakes. Some years we have only pancakes and crepes that day, both savoury and sweet. I don’t share all the recipes each time because I think they would take over. If you are looking for a different recipe for vegan pancakes, you can see another one here. Those are delicious too.

Basic recipe for Pancakes

For this recipe I used Oggs as an egg alternative. If you don’t have Oggs, you can use aquafaba or oat milk. Of course, any kind of vegan milk will work just as good.

Ingredients for 9-10 pancakes:

– 300g plain white flour
– 250ml oat milk
– 200ml Oggs
– 1 spoon oil
– 2 tsp of baking powder
– vegan butter or oil for frying the pancakes (optional)

Make the batter by adding all the ingredients in a bowl. Mix with a hand mixer. It should take a minute to make the batter. Let it rest while the frying pan is heating, at low to medium heat. You can leave the batter in the fridge if you want to, including overnight.

I find it easier if I pour a bit of oil in the frying pan, despite using one that is non-stick. Of course, you can use oil or not, depending on how it’s easier for you. Using a small ladle, scoop pancake batter onto the frying pan. Leave to cook at low to medium heat for two minutes. Flip the pancake or turn it with a turner. Leave it on the pan to cook on the other side for about 30 seconds or so.

Repeat with the rest of the pancakes. The secret to them rising beautifully is keeping them over low heat. I say low to medium because, during cooking, I would adjust the temperature. It can be different on your hob, so, make a test with one at low heat. If it doesn’t cook, rise the temperature to medium and lower it back when the pan is getting hot. It takes a bit of time, so use a big pan to cook more at a time.

To make sure I don’t rush them, I use the timer. This also allows me to do something else in the kitchen while the pancakes are cooking without fearing that I will burn them.
