A delicious vegan version of French style crepes.
Prep Time5 mins
Total Time7 mins
Servings: 8 Pancakes
- 110 g plain flour
- 1/2 tbsp gram (chickpea) flour optional but add a bit of an 'eggy' flavour
- 240 ml plant based milk
- 1/2 tbsp olive or rapeseed oil
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 tbsp dairy free margarine
Put the ingredients in a large jug and mix with a fork or hand blender until they form a smooth batter. If using a fork, add a little milk at a time to the flour to avoid lumps. Leave to stand.
Melt a tsp of margarine in a good frying pan until it is melted, swirl it round to coat the whole bottom of the pan. Let the pan get really hot, but do not allow the margarine to burn.
Turn the heat down slightly and add around 2 tbsps of batter to the centre of the pan. Immediately swirl the batter around so that it coats the pan evenly in a circle and then leave to cook for about a minute.
Use a spatula or similar to check if the underside is golden brown and if no flip the pancake over and cook for about 1 minute on the other side. Serve immediately with your favourite toppings.
