Hello friends,

It’s my first recipe in new year, ahem in 2014!

Vegan Pancakes! I never knew it could be just delicious and fluffy pillow-y as normal pancakes. I learned this from my new favourite book ‘Isa Does It’. If you don’t own this cookbook go get one. Unlike other vegan cookbooks it’s loaded with delicious and healthy recipes and it’s not calling for fake meat or imitate processed food. I have had tried so far – Beany Chili with Corn Muffins, Lentil-A-Roni, Chandra Malai Kofta, Banana Marble Bread and this Puffy Pillow Pancakes. Everything turned out just awesome. Since I’m huge fan for pancakes for breakfast and can eat everyday for even lunch, brunch or dinner. I just love the combination and flavour from mild pancakes and butter with maple syrup. It’s heaven for me!

If you are not into eggs this recipe for you.

Vegan Pancakes Recipe

makes about 8-10, depends on size
adapted from “Isa Does It”


The ground flaxseed may be replaced with Isabgol {aka Psyllium seed husks}. Though, I have not tried it with my pancakes as the ground flaxseed is readily available here in Australia.

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour/plain flour
  • 3 ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 cup almond milk {or any of your choice}
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp ground flaxseed
  • ½ cup water
  • 3 Tbsp oil
  • ½ tsp pure vanilla extract

How to:

1. In a measuring cup mix milk, vinegar and ground flax-seeds. Stir vigorously with fork and keep it aside.

2. In a large bowl, sift the flour, baking powder and salt. Add sugar and mix. Make a well in the center.

3. Now you should notice that the milk mixture is become like a glue. Stir and mix in flour mixture. Add the water, oil, and vanilla and mix well with fork. You’ll get a very thick and lumpy batter, thicker than normal pancakes batter. Mix until just all ingredients incorporated well. Let the batter rest for 10-15 minutes so vinegar and baking powder will do a miracle.

4. Preheat a nonstick or cast-iron flat pan or griddle over medium heat. Spray with little oil. Add ⅓ cup batter to the griddle and cook for 3-4 minutes on medium-low heat. If your griddle is big to cover 2 pancakes do it but don’t overcrowd. Your pancakes should be puffy on one side.

Flip the other side, adding a light coat of oil if needed, and cook for another 2-3 minutes. There should be nice golden spots on pancakes.

5. If you’re not serving immediately let them rest on cooling rack covered with aluminium foil until ready to serve.

6. Or you can wrap it tightly and freeze them for later use. To reheat, place pancakes on a baking sheet covered with foil in a 300F/160C oven for 5-6 minutes.

7. Serve with vegan butter {or choice of}, fruits like banana, strawberry and maple syrup. I simple jazzed up with walnuts. Perfect!

Now review part…

Few weeks ago Kitchenware Direct asked me if I would love to review another product of choice. Oh yes!

Scanpan needs no introduction. A Danish company, has produced high quality, long-lasting cookware. Their products are environmentally friendly and free from PFOA and PFOS chemicals.

I previously owned a Scanpan Casserole and I’m already hooked on their product. Many times I need more than one saucepan to cook my multiple dishes. At that time I really miss and wish I could have more than one saucepan. So, without any hesitant I went with same product range and chose this Scanpan Impact 3pc Saucepan Set. WOW! They delivered so quickly from KW Direct and they’re just simply beautiful as I expected.

This set Contains:
– 16cm/1.8 litre covered saucepan
– 18cm/2.5 litre covered saucepan
– 20cm/3.5 litre covered saucepan

Why did I chose again?
I love the brushed matt look and are they’re very stylish, ultra durable and easy to clean. The thick 5mm alloy base keeps the heat where you need it, steady heating on all cooking surfaces, including induction, with no hot spots. The handles are strong enough and I’m sure it will be forever. The tempered glass lids are strong and fit well. Also, Scanpan products are guaranteed for 10 years.

As I said in my earlier post they’re great for making rice, pasta, soup, stews, Indian curries and daal or you name it. I am really proud to have them in my kitchen. I do cook a lot, majorly in steel vessels. Hence, I was very confident about my choice and I knew I won’t regret ;)

The only downside is dishwashing is not recommended. Never mind as I (read my husband) ;) do our dishes by hands only.

Once again, thank you very much Brad from Kitchenware Direct for your wonderful gift!
