Helen's Vegan Pancake Recipe

It's that time of year again. Yes, that's right...shrove Tuesday, Mardi Gras, PANCAKE DAY!

I remember when I first went vegan in 2012 feeling a bit lost when it came to pancakes because the recipes rely so heavily on eggs and dairy, so after a little research, I came up with this foolproof vegan recipe that I use every year.

I really like using an egg replacement product called 'No Egg' by Orgran for recipes like this one. It's easily available online and in most health food stores. It really goes a long way and it's a great cupboard staple for all vegan cooks.

Pancakes are very versatile and can be served with sweet or savory toppings and fillings, so they make a brill option for vegan din dins any day of the year!

So here is my easy-peasy Vegan Pancake recipe...

Makes 6-8 pancakes


100g Plain Flour (the best quality you can afford - it really helps!) 

Pinch of Salt 

2 tbsp 'No Egg' egg replacer 

6 tbsp Cold Water 

300 ml Soya Milk 

100 ml Water (you can adjust this to get the consistency you prefer) 

2 tbsp Vegetable Oil plus extra for frying


Sift flour into a large mixing bowl and add the salt.

In a glass jug, mix the No Egg with 6 tbsp water and whisk with a fork until combined and slightly frothy.

Add the soya milk, water and oil to the jug and mix well.

Pour the liquid into the flour mixture and whisk thoroughly. I like to use an electric whisk for this! Keep whisking until all the lumps are gone and you have a nice smooth batter.

Heat a small frying pan to a medium/high setting and add a tiny amount of oil.

Add 1/6 to 1/8 of the mixture at a time to your frying pan depending on how big you want your pancakes to be and fry until the edges curl up.

Using a spatula, loosen the bottom and show off your Pancake chef skills by flippng your pancake over to cook the other side.

Remove and place on a warmed plate and repeat until all pancakes are done.

Enjoy with your fave vegan toppings. 

I like the classic lemon juice and sugar, but vegan chocolate spread comes a close second!

Do let me know how you get on with yours, and Happy Pancake Day!
