So somehow another year has flown by and it's Fat Tuesday again tomorrow. Traditionally the day to use up all the eggs and milk in the form of a pancake before Lent starts. But what if you don't eat eggs and milk?
Well fear not, you can still join in the fun! This is posted with Mary in mind - she's doing a vegan experiment right now!
150g (5oz) plain flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
half teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons of rapeseed/sunflower/vegetable oil
5 tablespoons of water
300ml (half pint) of plain soy or rice or hemp milk
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract (optional)
Sift the flour, baking powder salt and cinnamon together in a mixing bowl.
Mix the oil, water and milk together with the vanilla extract into a jug.
Slowly pour the wet mix into the dry, stirring as you go until you get the consistency you like for pancake batter (I like it quite thick but a lot of people like a thin batter to make crepes). Don't overmix though or the pancakes will be tough.
Cook exactly like you'd cook a normal pancake.
