Vegan cat pancakes recipe 

Makes 16 pancakes.

300g self-raising flour
1tbsp sugar
1tsp baking powder
1tbsp vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
400ml plant-based milk
Vegetable oil for cooking
Toppings (strawberries, blueberries, bananas, vegan chocolate sauce, plant-based yoghurt)

  1. Mix together the flour, sugar, vanilla extract, and salt in a bowl.
  2. Gradually pour in the milk, whisking as you go, until a smooth batter forms.
  3. Add 1tbsp of oil to a non-stick pan and put it on medium-low heat.
  4. Add a couple of tablespoons of batter to the pan and shape it into a cat face (alternatively, you could make round pancakes and cut them into cat shapes later).
  5. Cook the pancake for 3-4 minutes, until the surface starts to bubble, then flip it over and cook for a further 2-3 minutes until it’s golden on both sides.
  6. Repeat the process, cooking your pancakes in batches until you’ve used up the batter. You may need to add a little more oil to the pan each time.
  7. Use your toppings to create cat faces on your pancakes. Don’t forget the eyes, nose, mouth, whiskers and ears!
