Vegan Pancakes

Puffy Pillow Pancakes (13)

It’s Pancake Day tomorrow, and vegans needn’t miss out!  The lack of eggs in no way diminishes the taste or texture, yet oddly did seem to increase my success rate when flipping the pancakes.  No more misshapen heaps, this time I’ve got (almost) perfect circles of deliciousness.  Progress!
