Let’s see if we can manage a vegan version of yer wheatcakes, alright May? Alright, good – here we go.
- 1 cup buckwheat flour
- 1 cup sifted whole wheat flour
- 2 teaspoons double-acting baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
In a separate bowl, mix 2 cups
soymilk and 2 teaspoons molasses, then set aside.
Add to the four mix:
2 beaten eggs
Ahem! Egg Beaters, Aunt May… c’mon!
- 1/4 cup melted
(sigh) Earth Balance
- the buttermilk/molasses mixture
Whip 2 egg whites (alright, we give up!) until stiff, then fold them into the batter gently until blended. Don’t overmix! Cook on a greased hot griddle or frying pan, until small bubbles appear on top. Then turn pancakes over, and cook until bottom is lightly browned. Serve hot, with butter and maple syrup.
Reputedly, these things are supposed to taste a little better than the floor mats from an ’86 Datsun. But we’ll never know cause the vegan version really skewed our experiment and the whole meal was pretty much lost in the translation. Hey, in the comics, even Petey became allergic to ‘em after he grew a pair and moved out of the house. That’s okay, we’re more than happy to let Aunt May rest on her other laurels and overlook the entire Wheatcake Debacle of ’11.
Happy Mother’s Day!!
