Vegan pancakes are really great for breakfast especially on a school/work day. I'm sure you will agree with me on that because everyone loves pancakes. But not everyone knows how to make them. Trust me, I know. I just couldn't get it right. If they were not burnt then they were sticky, gummy, undercooked and just tasted yucky. It took me a while and a tonne of reading to get things down to a "T" but it was all worth it. I'm a big fan of this Secrets to Perfect Pancakes article, they literally thought me everything I know.
Hey I didn't mean to scare you, there's really not much to it and you can start making great pancakes in a jiffy.... Just follow these tips:
This is a really tempting and common thing to do. But if you do your pancakes will be tough, gummy and a bit yucky (kids hate that). Just a few tender swirls will be enough to mix the ingredients together well. And don't worry about getting out all of the lumps.... lumps are good.
Straight off the bat, if your skillet/pan is too hot you're going burn your pancakes, and they are not going to be well cooked inside. You don't want the heat to be too low either or else the batter will stick to the pan and will be grossly undercooked. It's a good idea to drop a little of your batter into the oil and see how it goes. If the oil sizzles you're good to go. If not, you'll need to crank up the heat a bit.
I remember burning my vegan pancakes (more than once)! I just didn't know when to turn them. Whenever I tried not to burn them I would turn them too quickly. But guess what? Pancakes come with their own personal timer. Yup, it's true. If the temperature is right then after about 2 minutes you should see little bubbles popping up. The bubbles indicate that it's time to flip. Two minutes on the other side and you will have a splendid pancake.
Well that's just about it. One thing I want you to note though, you're pancakes taste so much better with friends and family so share the love and remember the secrets to perfect vegan pancakes.
And here's a great vegan recipe to get you all started my friends, remember "vegan" because animals matter.
