Non Dairy Fluffy Pancakes

Daughter wanted to skip dairy products as she thinks dairy cause the outbreak. And I am craving for pancakes. To have pancake and at the same time daughter no need to worry about the pimple, I have to replace the dairy milk with something non-dairy. 

This morning, I changed the existing homemade-pancake  recipe a little. Instead of using homemade buttermilk, I replaced it with homemade "non dairy buttermilk".

I find the results of non dairy pancakes looks no different from dairy and most important is it taste good. It is fluffy and soft. Daughter exclaimed "taste very nice, mummy!". With her encouraging words, you just find making changes to recipe and keep improving is worth it. 😊

Ingredients (yields 8pcs of 12-15cm pancakes)
1.5 cup self raising flour
1 cup of coconut milk(carton type)
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 eggs
4 tbsp caster sugar

Add lemon juice into coconut milk and let it stand for about 10min. This is to make buttermilk at home. You can substitute lemon juice with white vinegar. 

Sift flour in a large bowl. Set aside.

In another bowl, whisk eggs and sugar together for few minutes. Add the above coconut 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.

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 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.
