Vegan Cat Pancake 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)

Mix together the flour, sugar, vanilla extract, and salt in a bowl.
Gradually pour in the milk, whisking as you go, until a smooth batter forms.
Add 1tbsp of oil to a non-stick pan and put it on medium-low heat.
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).
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.
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.
Use your toppings to create cat faces on your pancakes. Don’t forget the eyes, nose, mouth, whiskers and ears!
