This blog is a celebration of the wonderful world of vegan cooking. Enjoy!

* The title of this blog refutes the dangerous idea that veganism is a weight-loss diet and that all vegans are skinny. Conversely, being a-not-so-skinny-vegan is also not the same as being overweight or unhealthy. All food intake must be part of a balanced lifestyle.

Fluffy Pancakes

Crepes are one of my favourite brunch things to cook up. They can be sweet or savoury and aren't too heavy to have on a Sunday morning. However, sometimes my sweet tooth does get the better of me and I crave yummy, fluffy pancakes. The following recipe makes delicious and fluffy pancakes (with no eggs, milk or butter!).

Fluffy Pancakes

1 cup of flour
1 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp baking soda (yep, tbsp not tsp)
Pinch of salt
1 cup soymilk
2 tbsp vegetable oil

Mix dry ingredients thoroughly. Make a well in the centre and pour in milk and oil. Stir well trying to get out all the lumps and bumps. Pour small amounts onto a hot and lightly oiled pan turning it a little after you have poured it on to spread the mixture into a neat circle to the desired size. Flip when bubbles appear on the top of the pancake and the sides are getting firm. 
Serve with your favourite pancake toppings! Makes about 5 medium sized pancakes. Recipe could easily be doubled for bigger or more pancakes. Would also make great pikelets!
