For many vegans, the holidays are marked by the arrival of delicious Soy-Nog at the grocery store. Although I was never a fan of the real stuff, I do quite like the soy version. Something about the combination of spices (cinnamon, nutmeg and clove) makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. I think these pancakes do just that.
I don’t particularly care for any specific holiday music, so I like to listen to a little Django Reinhardt. Always makes me happy.
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/4 tsp fine grain sea salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp cloves
1 cup soy-nog
2 tbsp canola oil
3 tbsp maple syrup
soy butter (or cooking spray) for pan
In a medium bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients. Stir with a fork to combine. In a separate small bowl, combine the soy-nog, canola oil and maple syrup. Whisk to combine. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and fold using a spatula to combine. I use a spatula so that I don’t over mix.
Heat 2 tbsp soy butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. I use about 1/3 cup of batter per pancake and this makes about 8 pancakes. Cook until the edge of the pancake appears golden brown and the pancakes should slide fairly easily on the pan. Flip and cook for another minute or so.
