Blueberry Muffins: Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Position rack in center of oven. Butter or line 12 muffin cups with paper liners.

In a large bowl whisk together the lightly beaten egg, soy milk+lemon juice and melted coconut oil

In another large bowl whisk the flour with the sugar(brown + caster), and salt. Gently stir in the blueberries. With a rubber spatula fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir only until the ingredients are combined and moistened. (The batter will be thick.)

Pancake (Non-Dairy)

Lately my princess wanted to keep away from dairy products. Pancake which is sold in the market are added with cow milk. She has been seeing her friends having pancake and waffles and craving for it. So this morning to give her a 'surprise'  I have did some slight modification on my homemade-pancake recipe.

Princess is happy and finished 2 large pancakes.
Obviously when she is happy I am happy too!

1.5 cup self-raising flour
1 cup Non Sweet Soy milk
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 eggs, beaten lightly
3 tbsp caster sugar

Add lemon juice into soy milk and let it stay for about 5-10min. I do this to achieve buttermilk texture. You can substitute lemon juice with white vinegar or apple cider. Note: if you do not have lemon or vinegar,  you may omit it. Just soy milk is fine.

Sift flour in a large bowl.  

In another bowl, whisk eggs and sugar together for few minutes. Add the above buttermilk(soy+ lemon juice). Whisk them together. Then gradually whisk the egg mixture  into the flour. Whisk until mixture makes 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.

Serve pancakes topped with your desired jam and butter or margarine

P.S.  If you are using a normal frying pan, oil the frying pan with 1 teaspoon 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  drinking cup which you use for your water or coffee etc.. Just make sure you use the same cup to measure all the rest of ingredients
