What I make and eat - #4

These ones are Custard Flavored - which is something I like a lot. Served sinmply with a little syrup as pictured, or with fruit this is a treat breakfast. I like these with slices of ripe pear.

Custard Pancakes
Makes eight 5-inch pancakes

A beautiful golden yellow pancake, with a vanilla custard flavor, perfect for eating either warm topped with syrup, or cold spread with a little vegan margarine.

Preparation Time – 5 Minutes
Cooking Time – 15 Minutes

2 tablespoons Custard Powder
1 cup Soy Milk

½ teaspoon Vanilla Essence
½ cup Water
2 tablespoons Canola Oil
⅓ cup Sugar

1 ¾ cups All Purpose Flour
2 teaspoons Baking Powder
½ teaspoon Salt

Heat a large skillet over medium low heat.
In a large bowl whisk together the custard powder and soymilk until smooth. Add the vanilla, water, oil and sugar and whisk to combine.
Sift in the flour, baking powder and salt, mix to just combine.
Add a thin layer of oil to the skillet, allow to heat for a minute or so and using a ⅓ cup measure scoop a pancakes worth of batter onto the hot pan. Spread out slightly.
Cook the first side until bubbles appear all over the surface (about 3 – 5 minutes) and then flip over and cook the other side about 2 minutes more. You’ll notice the first side is golden.
Keep warm under a clean tea towel while you cook the rest.

Oh my... Custard pancakes? Amazing! This will give me something to do with all the vegan custard powder that is for some reason hanging out in my pantry.

Hi Carla! I am so happy to have found your blog. My son is a vegan and I am always trying to keep life interesting with his diet. I finally started a blog for myself here as well. For me, it's a good place for me to put my recipes, stories and pictures. I think of it as a journal of sorts. I hope other moms will find it helpful. Thanks for letting me follow you. It's feels good to meet others.
