Ingredients:

  • 1 cup vegan soymilk (I like to use vanilla; plain works fine)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup white cornmeal
  • 1 tablespoon vegan sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon baking soda
  • 1/4 tablespoon salt
  • 1 cup blueberries (do NOT thaw if frozen)
  • canola oil for frying

Directions:

Preheat oven to 200 degrees F.

In a medium bowl, combine the wheat flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt, vegan sugar and baking soda; mix well to combine. Make a well in the center of dry mixture; add soy milk and water. Mix with a fork just until moistened (overmixing will not allow pancakes to be fluffy). Gently fold in blueberries. Let batter stand undisturbed for 5 minutes while you preheat the griddle.

Heat griddle or large frying pan over medium heat; grease lightly with canola oil. Use a scant 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake. Turn when edges begin to look dry and bubbles form on the top; cook for 1/2 additional minutes. Keep pancakes warm in oven while you cook the rest. These are great with just margarine and maple syrup, but what I usually do is use margarine and brown vegan sugar…the sugar melts on top of the pancakes and is almost like caramel!

Serves: 12 pancakes
