  • 175 g plain flour (all purpose)
  • 2 tbsp cornflour cornstarch
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • Pinch salt
  • 300 ml dairy-free milk (almond, soy etc...)
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil plus more for frying
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • In a large bowl, mix the flour, cornflour, baking powder and spices. 
  • In a separate bowl (or large mixing jug), mix the milk, oil, maple syrup, vinegar and vanilla.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix. It will still be slightly lumpy, but don’t over-mix or the pancakes will be tough. Set the mixture aside, letting it rest for 5 minutes for fluffier results. 
  • Add a drizzle of the oil to a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Ladle small rounds onto the pan and cook for 1-2 minutes on each side until bubbles appear on the surface and the underside turns golden. Flip and cook the other side for 1-2 minutes or until golden.
