One of my housemates’ favourite dinners while abroad was Breakfast for Dinner. Between the lot of us, we had enough vegan and non-vegan options to appease even the pickiest eaters in the house. We’d have cereals, bacon and sausage (both vegan and non-vegan), potatoes . . . and each time, these easy vegan pancakes were a hit!
Growing up, I had pancakes and waffles with my grandmother pretty often. One of my favourite memories was of her special pancake topping: milk and sugar. Her mother did it, Nan did it, and now I do it—with non-dairy milk since becoming vegan, of course.
Of course, they’re just as good with more standard pancake toppings. From (vegan) butter and plenty of maple syrup to your favourite fruit, you can customise them to your liking.
Believe it or not, I haven’t tried this with any mix-ins, but blueberries or chocolate chips sound wonderful. Though I haven’t tested it, I see no reason why these wouldn’t be even more delicious than the pancakes themselves! If you do try a mix-in like these, let us know in the comments–we’d love to hear how it went!
These pancakes are delicious and tend to come out extra fluffy. Plus, the recipe makes enough pancakes for everyone (or leftovers!), so you’ll have plenty.
Most importantly, though, these pancakes are super simple. I’ve found that there seems to be a pretty common misconception that vegan recipes are difficult. That’s not the case here! These pancakes are super simple.
The only bit that might prove troublesome is the inclusion of buttermilk. It’s not a common store-bought vegan ingredient and, if you haven’t used it before, it definitely seems intimidating. After all, what’s less vegan than butter AND milk?
Try our vegan buttermilk recipe for a simple solution to that ingredient. I promise—it might be the easiest part of it all!
From my childhood mornings of pancakes with Nanny to breakfasts for dinner with my housemates in Bath, pancakes have been a frequent character in my life and these make it easier than ever to have a vegan version!
So, without further ado . . . .
