How to make Bizarre Aquafaba Pancakes
Pancakes form an integral part of breakfast, and for some, they make a perfect treat any time of the day. However, for those who are looking to give the traditional pancake recipe a twist, you can try making aquafaba pancakes. Aquafaba is a chickpea liquid that is used as an egg substitute in vegan cooking. Follow the steps below to make the bizarre aquafaba pancakes that will leave you wanting more.
– 1 cup chickpea liquid
– 1 cup all-purpose flour
– 1 tablespoon sugar
– 1 tablespoon baking powder
– 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
– ½ cup non-dairy milk, such as almond milk
– 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
– Pinch of salt
1. Prepare the aquafaba
Pick a can of chickpeas and drain the liquid into a bowl or jar. Save the chickpeas, which can be used later in a different recipe. Whisk the chickpea liquid until it starts forming stiff peaks.
2. Make the batter
In a separate bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add the vegetable oil, vanilla extract, and non-dairy milk, then stir the mixture until the batter becomes smooth. Gradually fold in the aquafaba, stirring gently with a spatula.
3. Tweak the recipe to your preference
If you want the pancake batter to have a thicker consistency, add more flour. If you prefer a thinner batter, add more non-dairy milk.
4. Begin cooking the pancakes
Heat up a non-stick pan or griddle over medium heat. Lightly coat the surface with cooking spray, vegetable oil, or vegan margarine. Pour a ladleful of batter onto the pan and let it cook for about 2-3 minutes until the bubbles start forming on the surface of the pancake.
5. Flip the pancake and cook the other side
Use a spatula to flip the pancake over and let the other side cook for another minute or two until it turns golden brown. Once cooked, move the pancake onto a plate and repeat the process until you’ve used up all the batter.
6. Serve and Enjoy
Serve your delicious aquafaba pancakes with your favourite toppings, such as maple syrup, strawberries, or whipped cream. You can also opt to experiment by adding chocolate chips, blueberries, or bananas into the batter.
