Nothing better than a traditional recipe to liven up the sunday brunch.
Only that today I would like to show you an easy one with many possible options: gluten free with vegan options!
(Reminder: no eggs and no honey for the vegan version)
Time to cook: the batter is done in 5 minutes.
If you have the time, let it rest aside for an hour, if you don’t, heat up the crêpière 🙂
INGREDIENTS for 2-3 persons
- 4 big tablespoons of buckwheat flour
- 1 cup of vegetal milk (Vilk)
- 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
- Around 200 mL of water (check the recipe)
- A pinch of salt
- 1 egg (non-vegan option)
Depending on what I can use, I prepare the batter with a blender or with a hand mixer.
1. Mix the flour, the salt, the vegetal milk and (optionally) the egg homogeneously.
As the batter is still thick, we can integrate easily all the flour without any lump.
2. Then add the liquid coconut oil (if it’s not liquid, let it a few minutes in a bain-marie or on the radiator) and some water.
You should obtain a liquid-enough batter to spread well on the pan, but no too liquid in order to avoid holes appearing during the cooking.
I observed that everyone assess the viscosity of the batter their own way… Generally with such amount of flour I get around half a liter of batter.
3. If your paste is too thick to spread well on your hot pan, add a little bit of water and mix well. The raw paste should have a liquid enough aspect to be spread easily.
And if you have too many holes after spreading it, add a little bit of flour or… make your galettes thicker 🙂
Then you are free to complete your pancakes according to your taste. My favorite ones are:
- salted: I add an egg right after I turned the pancake and I add a sliced white mushroom with black pepper
- sweet: once the pancake is on the plate I pour some maple syrup and crunched hemp seeds.
Other vegan ideas for garnishing: zucchinis quickly pan-cooked and fresh basilic, white mushrooms with pepper and lemon juice, slices of avocado and tomato, dark chocolate and banana slices, stewed apples with ginger.
Bon appétit ! 😉
