World's Best Vegan Pancakes

Timothy Tang 1

"This vegan pancake recipe is the best of the vegan lot. The secret that these pancakes are not soggy like the other vegans ones is that it uses custard powder. This ensures the pancakes are cakelike and taste and look exactly like non-vegan pancakes. Mix fruit into the batter if you like. Serve hot with syrup or jam."

These are really good and you can't tell they are vegan! I was out of eggs and my kids really wanted pancakes, so that is how I ran accross this recipe. I did not have self-rising flour so I used all purpose and added 2 tsp baking soda, 1 1/2 tsp baking powder, and 1 tsp salt. I used vanilla soy milk. The batter was really thick so I added another cup of soy milk. It made a really nice fluffy pancake. I could have probably added another cup of soy milk to thin it out a bit. I never would have thought of using my custard mix for this but it is really good. thanks for the 'eggless' pancake. You made my kids happy!

The Bird's Custard powder that I use in this part of Asia is totally vegan. You can replace vegan custard powder by using 1 tbsp cornstarch and 1 tsp chickpea flour for the yellow color. Check out my updated recipe, The World's Best Vegan Pancakes II. * 1 cup of flour * 1 tbsp. of vegan sugar * 1/2 tsp. of baking powder * 1/2 tsp. of baking soda * 1 tbsp. of cornstarch * 1 tbsp. of chickpea flour(for color) * 1 cup of non-GMO soy milk at room temperature * 2 tbsp. of oil -written on Dec 1st 2010


When you add more milk (about 1/2 cup at least), these really are the BEST vegan pancakes we've made! No custard powder to be found here so we subbed the equal amount of vanilla pudding mix.
