Pancakes and cream

There are times when only pancakes will do. The weather in Scotland has been utterly rubbish lately with non stop rain in June and people are feeling a bit angsty. Pancakes usually makes things better so adding vegan cream has to be the best right? Below is the recipe you need for pancakes with homemade cream and maple syrup.

For the pancakes:
Ingredients:
40 grams plain flour
40 grams room temperature water
1 teaspoon baking powder
salt and pepper to taste
1 teaspoon oil (just enough to ensure they wont stick)
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt

Method:
1. In a bowl whisk all ingredients together. Ensure no flour lumps.
2. Leave the mixture to rest for a few moments while you bring a frying pan up to a medium heat.
3. Use a ladle to put a third of the mixture into the pan.
4. When the uncooked side starts to bubble slightly turn over and ensure both sides are cooked.

These pancakes are not as sweet as the other sweet kind I make and they are thicker but they go perfectly with maple syrup and the cream below as extremely sweet pancakes would be just too sweet.

For the cream:

450 grams firm tofu
2 tablespoons canola oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons maple syrup (you can use agave or just plain sugar)
1/4 teaspoon salt

Blend all ingredients until smooth and creamy. Easy right?

This keeps well in the fridge for a couple of days if it makes too much.

Hope you enjoy!

Sweetcorn pancakes

Still was not feeling too hot tonight and I had part of a can of sweetcorn to use up so it was comfort food dinner again. After a bowl of mushroom soup from yesterday I made some sweetcorn pancakes. They really are so easy to make and because I love all kinds of pancakes they were just what I needed! Add that to the fact the Murray game finished at 10pm it was quick dinner time also!

I made enough for 3 pancakes but this recipe is really easy to multiply for extra people. This is definitely enough for one person though.

Ingredients:
80 grams sweetcorn ( I used fresh but its fine to use frozen just ensure you allow them to defrost and dont use the water)
40 grams plain flour
40 grams room temperature water
1 teaspoon baking powder
salt and pepper to taste
1 teaspoon oil (just enough to ensure they wont stick)

Method:
1. In a bowl whisk all ingredients together. Ensure no flour lumps.
2. Leave the mixture to rest for a few moments while you bring a frying pan up to a medium heat.
3. Use a ladle to put a third of the mixture into the pan.
4. When the uncooked side starts to bubble slightly turn over and ensure both sides are cooked.
5. Serve with sweet chilli sauce (or a sauce of your choice).
6. Enjoy.
