This creation really evokes the fluffiness and taste of a cake more than it does a pancake. After all, the term “pancakes” was coined because they’re a cross between crepes and cakes, but these vegan Cakey Pancakes by Agnes Potier-Murphy are even more cakey than that. These airy little delights are gluten-free and make use of leftover oat pulp, which is always a plus if you’re someone who makes a lot of home-made plant-based milk! But whole rice flour is probably the one ingredient that makes all the difference here. Indeed, not only does it give the resulting pancakes a pleasant crumb, but it also brings the taste to the next level. Try out these cakey vegan pancakes and be amazed. They are delicious with vegan butter, maple syrup, fruits, chocolate sauce, and almost any other pancake topping!
