Easy and FLUFFY baked vegan blueberry pancake. You only need one bowl, an oven-safe tray and the simpliest pantry ingredients.
I love pancakes but I honestly don't enjoy cooking them as they can be difficult to flip especially if you don't have a non-stick frying pan.
However, this no-flip easy baked pancake gives you all the fluffy deliciousness of conventional pancakes with 100 x less work and stress.
Ingredients for making this baked vegan blueberry pancake
You'll need the simpliest pantry staples including:
- Plain, spelt or wholemeal flour. I used wholemeal because extra fibre in the morning is always great
- Plant-based milk. Any type will do!
- Baking powder
- Vegetable oil. I used olive oil but sunflower or any other liquid oil would do well.
- Coconut sugar or regular sugar
- Salt to bring out the flavour of the pancake (optional)
- Touch of cinnamon and nutmeg as they give the pancakes a real 'bakery' taste, smell and feel! (optional)
- The freshest blueberries you can find. I used local Australian blueberries!
If you're looking for a less refined baked pancakes made of mostly oats and a wholefood sweetener, see my baked vegan pancake with plums.
Now, you do NOT need animal-derived ingredients to make the pancake. Instead of eggs, we're using extra baking powder. This will set the pancake and make it rise!
How to make this blueberry vegan pancake
Simply add all the dry ingredients to a bowl and whisk until there are no big lumps. Add the wet ingredients and whisk until it's as smooth as possible. There might be a few lumps but as long as they aren't lumps of flour, it's good to go.
When the batter is ready, I folded in some blueberries!
Now, instead of precariously pouring the batter into perfect puddles in a frying pan, pour ALL the batter into an oven-safe pan. I used a cast iron pan but you normal pan (as long as it doesn't have a plastic handle) or a round or rectangular casserole dish.
Then bake away! It will take only 20 or so minutes.
How to serve vegan pancakes
Similar to conventional pancakes, you can stack these pancakes and drizzle it with allll the maple syrup. My favourite pancake accompaniments are:
- Fresh fruit which are naturally soft like berries
- Stewed fruit like apples, pears
- Something creamy such as coconut yoghurt or ice cream
- Something syrupy like maple, coconut or rice malt syrup.
I hope you enjoy this recipe!
