This morning, I made some changes in my homemade pancakes recipes. Few weeks ago, I used coconut milk to make buttermilk. Today I tried soya milk added with one big tablespoon of lemon juice. Notice soya milk curd very fast. The result of the pancakes is very soft. There are many bubbles holes in the pancakes. Therefore very soft and fluffy. So I guess this is why daughter asked "mum, it is so nice, what did you add inside, taste so good!"
Ingredients (yields 8pcs of 12-15cm pancakes)
1.5 cup self raising flour
1 cup of soya milk(i used soy powder added with water)
1 tbsp lemon juice
4 tbsp caster sugar
1/2 tsp homemade coconut condensed milk(optional)
1 tsp vanilla essence(optional)
Home substitution for buttermilk:
Add lemon juice into soy milk and let it stand for about 5-10min. Soy milk curd very fast. Within about few min you could see the milk thickened. You may use white vinegar or apple cider vinegar instead of lemon
Sift flour in a large bowl. Set aside.
In another bowl, whisk eggs and sugar together for few minutes. Add the above soy milk lemon mixture. Whisk them together. Then gradually whisk the egg mixture into the flour. Whisk until it become a smooth batter. Tranfer batter to large jug.
Heat up a non-stick frying pan. Highly recommended non-stick pan.
Pour about 1/4 cup of batter into frying pan. Cook pancake until you see bubbles appear on surface and almost dry. Turn the pancake with a spatula to lightly brown other side. Cover pancakes on plate with foil to keep them warm. Continue to make more pancakes with remaining batter.
P.S. If you are using a normal frying pan, oil the frying pan with 1 tbsp of oil. Then use a kitchen paper towel to wipe away excess oil. Note: the first piece using normal frying pan will not look so desirable. But subsequent one will be perfect.
Note: If you do not have a metric measuring cup at home, you may use any kind of cup for drinking your water or coffee etc. Just make sure you use the same cup to measure all the ingredients.
