Tall Stack Building A Step-by-Step Guide: Every Sunday morning when I was a kid, my dad and I would use an old cookbook to plan our pancake-making. Usually, my job was to weigh out and mix the ingredients, being careful not to mix the batter too much. To know when to flip, I would watch the batter bubble and wait for the bubbles to pop.
With a flick of the wrist, he can flip the pancakes in the air. I think I may have dropped a half-cooked pancake on the floor at least once or twice during my attempts. I don’t even try any longer. A good vegan pancake recipe was something I had to find right away when I became a vegan.
The recipe we used for “griddle cakes” was changed to make this vegan pancake recipe, and the results taste the same. You don’t have to flip them in the air. They’re thick and fluffy, and the sugar is just right. You can put maple syrup, sliced fruit, or any other toppings you want on them. The recipe calls for eggs, but applesauce is used instead, and margarine is used instead of the melted butter from the original recipe.
HOW TO MAKE THE BEST PANCAKES
I know it can be hard to make pancakes just right. It’s all about having the right tools and cooking in the right kind of pan over the right heat. It takes some practice because there are so many things to get right.
HOW MUCH HEAT TO USE
- A common mistake people make when making pancakes is turning the heat up too high. This makes the pancakes burnt on the outside and underdone in the middle.
- The pan should be on low heat, but not too low. Low to medium is great. This will let the pancakes cook all the way through while the outside slowly turns golden.
- They will take a long time to cook and turn out pale and gooey if the temperature is too low.
- Test the first pancake and eat it as a snack while you cook the rest!
TIME TO COOK
About 5 minutes should be enough time to cook each side of the pancake. One of the above problems will happen if your pancakes are ready to flip before they’re done or if they take a long time to cook. Change the heat as needed.
HOW OFTEN TO FLIP
- The pancakes will start to bubble and then the bubbles will go away as they cook.
- Your pancakes will be ready to flip soon after the bubbles pop and start to hold their shape.
- Once most of the bubbles are still together, make sure the other side is golden and then flip it over.
- Let’s not wait any longer, or you might burn them.
WHAT KIND OF PAN TO USE
Pancakes that are tasty, cooked evenly, and crispy all over are best made in a cast iron pan! I cook almost everything in my cast iron pan, and it’s great for tofu too, so I really think you should get one. It will last a very long time.
If you don’t have a cast iron pan or don’t want to clean it, a non-stick pan will work just fine. A stainless steel pan is not something I would suggest using. The pan will get stuck if you don’t oil it really well.
HOLD THEM HOT IN THE OVEN
While you cook the rest of the batter, you can keep the pancakes that are already made warm in the oven. Just put them on a baking sheet or plate and put them in an oven set to 200°F.
WHAT TO USE AND WHAT NOT TO USE
- All-purpose flour and whole wheat flour should be mixed together in this recipe.
- Whole wheat pastry flour is better than stone ground wheat flour because it’s not as dense.
- You could use only all-purpose flour, but I don’t think it would work well with whole wheat. They won’t be fluffy enough.
CREAM OF GOD
- The pancakes taste great with the margarine on them.
- Any cooking oil could be used instead if you wanted to.
- If you like coconut, unrefined coconut oil is the best choice for a buttery taste.
MILK WITHOUT DAIRY
- Oat milk or almond milk are my favorite kinds of milk for this recipe.
- These both have a neutral taste that doesn’t take away from the pancakes’ buttery taste.
- Adding more milk will make the pancakes thinner.
- They will still be soft in the middle and crispy around the edges. Remember that if the batter is thin, they will cook faster.
ADD INS AND TOPPINGS
If you want to try something different, you can do so. My favourites are blueberries and dairy-free chocolate chips. They should be added right after the batter is poured into the pan. They’ll stick to the pancakes that way and have a chance to melt or cook all the way through. When it’s time for breakfast, have your fruit ready to go if you like your toppings to be extra.
