Saved-My-Day Pancakes

After a week of nibbeling dry toast and sipping chammomile tea and STILL feeling sick and getting cramps and everything I was ready for something else this morning. When I saw the mouthwatering photo of FatFreeVegan Susan's Golden Spice Pancakes I knew it had to be pancakes. The doctor had told me to abstain from sugar and milk (haha, two things I don't eat much anyway).

Ok, strictly speaking sugar would include maple syrup. The real challenge however was to make them absolutely completely fat-free since I knew that my stomach couldn't handle that for sure. I used a non-stick skilletand set the heat on medium. And - oh miracle - they came out beautifully. Their surfaces weren't sealed by the fat so they absorbed the maple syrup immediately. But for a stomach-impaired person like me they were perfect.

Saved-My-Day Almost-BRAT-Diet Pancakes

1 cup soymilk (mine is slightly sweetened with organic cane sugar)
5 tablespoons all-purpose-flour
1 tablespoon soyflour (or egg replacer of choice)
1 tablespoon organic brown cane sugar
1 heaped teaspoon baking soda
1 pinch of salt

Whisk together and "fry" or rather bake them in a non-stick skillet over medium. Of yourse you can grease the skillet but if your skillet is really non-stick it should work without fat. Drench in maple syrup and enjoy :-)

Fat-free depends on the use of fat-free ingredients.
Gluten-free depends on the use of gluten-free ingredients.

I'm a pancake freak, too. And pancakes aren't even very much known in this part of the world.

That's the advantage of living in different countries: every country has one food you will love and miss forever until you learn how to cook it yourself :-)

I'm crazy about pancakes too. We even have them for supper sometimes.
