Easy-Peasy Dairy Free Fluffy Pancakes

My Easy-Peasy Dairy Free Fluffy Pancakes are a popular breakfast (or dessert) choice in our family. We have always had pancakes as a treat and when Matilda was born I knew I had to find a dairy free alternative. These are so versatile, you can swap ingredients so easily,  from which dairy free milk you use to which combination of fruit, yoghurt or ice-cream you want to compliment them. Perfect served warm with fresh fruit for breakfast or a scoop of dairy free ice-cream for dessert. The choice is yours!

The recipe below makes 6 medium sized pancakes. 


1 cup of plain flour
1 egg
1 cup of Oatly Oat Drink (whole)
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1 tablespoon of caster sugar (optional)


I'm sure there is a more exquisitely detailed way of combining the ingredients but as a busy Mum with three hungry children (and a husband) I unfortunately don't have time. So here is my very quick and simple way of making these delicious pancakes. 

1. Measure out the plain flour and pour into a small mixing bowl. Add the baking powder and, if including it, the caster sugar into the bowl as well. 
2. Crack the egg into the bowl, add the milk and mix well with a fork or whisk. This should produce a smooth, thick batter. 
3. Melt a little dairy free spread or heat a small drop of sunflower oil in a fry pan until it is sizzling hot. 
4. Using a shallow ladle, scoop some mixture into the hot frying pan and cook for  about 1 minute on each side, flipping with a spatula when the underside is golden. 
5. Remove the pancake from the pan when cooked and place on a warm plate and cover with foil while you repeat steps 3 and 4 until all the batter has been used. 
6Using a circular cookie cutter, 3cm in diameter, cut several smaller pancakes out of one of the pancakes for Baby. You can enjoy the rest!
7. Serve with fresh berries and a banana for a truly scrumptious breakfast.
