This Ginger Carrot Raisin Pancake recipe isn't your conventional vegan pancake recipe because it features carrots for a subtle butteriness, raisins for a little extra bonus sweetness and ginger for a hint of spicy finish. it's a great combination of flavors that is further enhanced with a drizzle of maple syrup or Agave Maple Syrup.
2 ¼ cups non-dairy milk
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon golden flax meal
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup whole wheat flour
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup oat bran, wheat bran or wheat germ
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 ½ teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon nutmeg
½ teaspoon cloves
1/3 cup canola oil
½ cup shredded carrot (about one medium-sized carrot)
½ cup raisins
3 Tablespoons ginger, minced
In a medium bowl, whisk together the non-dairy milk, apple cider vinegar and vanilla extract. Let it sit for about 10 minutes so the non-dairy milk curdles.
In a large bowl whisk together the whole wheat flour, all purpose flour, oat bran, sugar, cinnamon, salt, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg and cloves.
Shred the carrot and chop the ginger. Add the carrots, raisins and ginger to a small bowl and set aside.
Whisk the canola oil into the non-dairy milk and apple cider vinegar from Step 1 then whisk the mixture into the large bowl containing the flour mixture and mix until fully incorporated. Stir in the carrots, raisins and ginger.
Grease a griddle or a large iron skillet with canola oil. If you're using a non-stick surface forego the greasing process. The surface is ready for pancakes when water flicked on it sizzles. Using a ladle, drop about 1/3 cup of batter to form a pancake. When small bubbles appear, flip the pancake with a spatula. A thin steel spatula with a large surface area works well. Let the pancakes cook for at least another 2 minutes on the other side or until golden. Do not press down on pancakes with the spatula.
Pancakes keep for up to 5 days in an airtight container in the fridge and can be easily heated in a toaster.
Makes about 12 pancakes.
