I could not have been the only one who has been watching American movies as a kid and dreaming I could eat these same fluffy pancakes, bathed in a syrup I did not know of. You know, before the mass use of the internet, we could not just get any recipe. It was only a ton of years later when I first tried these pancakes in Barcelona.
Well, well, it turns out they are pretty easy to make. In fact, these vegan American pancakes have turned into my go-to weekend breakfast. They look impressive, they taste heavenly and they make me seem like a great chef.
Toppings and variations
Alternatively, try using a 1:1:1 mix of quinoa, buckwheat and brown rice flour to make these pancakes gluten-free.
To prepare the “sauce” for my pancakes, I used a handful of frozen berries and I heated them in a pan until they started releasing their juices. Then, I added some fresh raspberries for additional taste. You can also pour some maple syrup in case you need more sweetness.
This is the classic recipe so take it as a base and start experimenting with other ingredients.
I once topped my pancake tower with home-made pineapple jam. Needless to say, this breakfast did not last long.
On another occasion, I added two tablespoons of raw cacao powder to the dry ingredients. At the end, I served the pancakes with banana slices and a drizzle of maple syrup. Again, it was heavenly.
A touch of vanilla extract could also do wonders!
