  • 350 ml dairy free milk
  • ½ tablespoon apple cider vinegar or lemon juice or white wine vinegar
  • 220 g plain flour
  • ½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)
  • 1 tablespoon caster sugar optional
  • Pinch salt optional
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower oil for cooking


  • Preheat your oven to low - you’ll use this to keep your pancakes warm.
  • Add ½ tablespoon of cider vinegar to 350ml dairy free milk. Set aside.
  • Place 220g plain flour in a mixing bowl. Add ½ teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda along with a tablespoon of sugar and a pinch of salt (if using).
  • Whisk together.
  • Slowly pour in the milk and vinegar mixture, whisking as you go.
  • Leave to rest for a few minutes.
  • Heat a frying pan over a medium heat until hot.
  • Add a little sunflower oil - I use a silicone brush to spread it over the hot surface.
  • Add a large spoonful of batter to the middle of the pan and cook for around three minutes, until bubbles have appeared on the surface.
  • Carefully turn over with a rubber spatula and cook for a further two-three minutes until golden on both sides and cooked through.**
  • When cooked remove and keep warm in a low oven while you cook the rest of the batter.
  • Serve with your favourite pancake toppings.


*You can cook two or three pancakes at the same time but take care the batter doesn’t run into the other pancakes.
**To check if the pancake is cooked through gently press down with the spatula. If any liquid batter squirts out it isn’t cooked through - reduce the heat to cook the middle without the outside burning.
