With Pancake Day in mind, I fancied trying to make something vegan. I used my basic scotch pancake recipe and adjusted it!
Matthew described these vegan chocolate pancakes as delicious then paused and said ‘delicious is not a strong enough word!’ High praise indeed!
100g plain flour (mine is gluten free)
60g caster sugar
1 tablespoon cocoa
100ml oat milk (other plant based milks should also work in this recipe)
1 flax egg (I tablespoon flaxseed mixed with 3 tablespoons water and left to stand for 5 minutes)
oil for frying
Mix together the flax egg and set aside for 5 minutes to thicken. Add the milk.
In a separate bowl, mix the flour, sugar and cocoa.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry and beat together until combined and smooth.
Heat the oil in a small frying pan (or big if you want to do several at once)
Add a tablespoon of batter and cook for a couple of minutes each side.
Serve warm with dairy free spread
