Vegan Oat & Cardamom Pancakes
I love having guests for breakfast, there is something so special about sitting down to the first meal of the day with a table full of people. We had a much bigger group for breakfast than usual recently so I took the opportunity to experiment with some new pancakes. It's great to have an excuse to cook something new and exciting for breakfast, and these pancakes were absolutely delicious! Serve with whatever toppings you like :)
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp caster sugar
1/2 tsp cardamom
1/2 cup oat milk
1 cup soda water
7 tbsp non dairy margarine (such as nuttelex)
1/2 cup quick cooking oats
1. Combine the flour, baking powder, sugar and cardamom in a bowl. Make a well in the middle and add the soy milk and soda water. Stir with a whisk until batter is a smooth consistency (it doesn't matter if it's not completely smooth, as long as all the ingredients are combined). Stir through the oats.
2. Heat a large frypan over a medium heat and add 1 tbsp margarine.
3. Add about 1 ladleful of the batter to the pan at a time, you will need to cook them in a few batches. Flip the pancakes after about 2-3 minutes, or when bubbles appear all around the edge of the pancake and the bottom looks golden brown.
4. Add an extra tbsp of margarine to the pan as needed as you cook the batches. Eat straight away with any toppings you like - we had ours with stewed fruit and lingonberry jam.
