Easy Vegan Crepes (Pancakes)





This MUST try Vegan Crepes (Pancakes) recipe is easy to make and only contains 3 ingredients.  It is the same recipe which I have used for years but without the egg and the milk has been replaced with water or plant milk.  I also have a video for this recipe below and I also have an adapted version of this recipe for those who want use plain or all purpose flour scroll down for more. 



   
                                            Easy vegan crepes




3 INGREDIENT CREPES / PANCAKES RECIPE  (makes 6 pancakes or double to make 12 pancakes)

1 cup of self raising (cake) flour 
1 cup of water* 
A pinch of salt
or 1/2 - 1 tbsp of granulated sugar  (add as much you want)



METHOD : 

1.  Place all of the ingredients into a bowl and use a whisk to make a smooth liquid batter.  
2.  Preheat your hob to a medium heat and place a non stick frying pan on it for at least 2 minutes or set your hob to a high heat and turn it down to a medium heat during step 3 
3.  Then use a ladle to scoop the mixture onto the middle of the frying pan, distribute the mixture around the pan to form a circle shape.  Cook for 30 seconds - 1 minute, flip over with a spatula then cook the other side for no more than 30 seconds.  
4.  Stack the pancakes on to a plate, when a new pancake is cooked place it at the bottom or the middle of the stack. Keep the pancakes covered at all times with a towel or cling film (plastic wrap) to keep the pancakes soft and warm.  
5.  Within 10 minutes the pancakes should have softened (especially if they were slightly over cooked).  Leave the finished pancake stack to rest for 10 minutes before eating them.  6.  Enjoy you pancakes with a sweet or savoury topping of your choice.
7.  The pancakes will last for 3 days in the fridge.  Alternatively just wrap them individually with baking / parchment paper and place in the a freezable bag in the freezer for a month or so.
