With the weather brightening, it feels like spring is just around the corner. Celebrate the season with these tasty American-style pancakes. Fluffy, delicious, and vegan!
Vegan Banana Pancakes
You will need:
1 large ripe banana (around 150g)
2 tbsp golden caster sugar
¼ tsp fine salt
2 tbsp vegetable oil, plus extra for cooking
120g self-raising flour
½ tsp baking powder
150ml oat, almond milk or soya milk
syrup, sliced banana and berries, to serve (optional)
Mash the banana in a mixing bowl. Stir in the sugar, salt and oil. Add the flour and baking powder and mix thoroughly. Make a well in the centre and gradually whisk in the milk. The batter should be a thick, droppable consistency.
Heat a little oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Add 2 tbsp of the batter to make American-style pancakes. You will be able to make about 4-5 at a time. Fry on each side for 2-3 mins until golden. Serve with syrup, sliced banana and berries, if desired.
