Transcript:How to Make Dairy-Free Pancakes
Hey guys, Jonathon Stewart here for About.com. Do you sometimes feel like the kid after school who had to stay inside and practice the violin when everyone else was out playing red rover, the minute buttery, milky pancakes hit the table and you have to abstain? Well liberate yourself! Try these amazing dairy-free delectables and you'll never feel left out, ever again.
Ingrediants for Dairy-Free Pancakes
For today's recipe, you'll need:
- 1 c. flour
- 2 and a 1/2 tspn. baking powder
- 3 tbsp. honey
- 1 c. rice or soy milk
- 1 tbsp. olive oil
- 1 large egg
- whatever you want to put on top when your done. (I'm personally a big fan of sesame seed butter and grape preserves, but yeah sure - I guess you can put maple syrup on them, too.)
How to Make the Dairy-Free Pancakes
Start by separating the white from the yolk of your egg, then whip it until its texture is somewhat firm. In a large bowl, combine your soy milk, yolk, olive oil, and honey and then add in your flour, baking powder and egg white and mix until smooth.
If you don't want to bother with all this mixing business, you can always use a commercially prepared pancake flour mix. Arguably the most well known of these was made famous by the charismatic woman who literally became the face of a hundred and fifteen year running advertising campaign. Her name was Nancy Grace, but you might know her better as Aunt Jemima.
Next, heat a lightly oiled skillet on medium low for a minute or two, then pour in about a fourth of a cup of batter. When your pancake starts to bubble, lift a corner to check that the bottom is golden brown in color, and flip to the other side. When the second side is perfectly browned, remove from the heat and start up your next hotcake.
This recipe should make about twelve to fifteen good sized, dairy-free pancakes. The toughest thing about making pancakes is definitely the timing, but once you get into a groove, you'll be flipping flapjacks like a pro.
