  1. Whisk the flour, baking powder, sugar, vanilla extract and a pinch of salt in a bowl using a balloon whisk until mixed. Slowly pour in the milk until you get a smooth, thick batter.

  2. Heat a little of the oil in a non-stick frying pan over a medium-low heat, and add 2 tbsp batter into the pan at a time to make small, round pancakes. You will need to do this in batches of two-three at a time. Cook for 3-4 mins until the edges are set, and bubbles are appearing on the surface. Flip the pancakes over and cook for another 2-3 mins until golden on both sides and cooked through. Keep warm in a low oven while you cook the remaining pancakes. 

  3. Serve stacked with lots of toppings of your choice, or serve with bowls of toppings for everyone to help themselves.

I tried this recipe and I would not be able to distinguish between normal pancakes and these vegan ones. They were really nice I highly recommend them.

One of the easiest and best vegan pancake recipe I have found. Even Stores well ok they were all eaten by the next day but still amazing. My son who is not vegan preferred these to his usual pancakes. Definitely a winner in this house and will make every time we fancy pancakes.

This didn't seem balanced in the English pancake way. Far too much flour to milk ratio, I doubled the amount. The vanilla and syrup made it cakey smelling, like an American sweet pancake.

I put this recipe in a mini waffle machine, and it came out very hard, had no colour and was not fluffy at all. It was more like an ice cream cone. I added more milk and maple syrup, making it sweeter and had a better colour, but overall a disappointing recipe - won't be using the recipe again.
