Let’s see if we can manage a vegan version of yer wheatcakes, alright May? Alright, good – here we go.
Mix together:
- 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!!

It’s quite an experience to visit NY one weekend and be amongst thousands of fellow comic book fans, then come back to Boston and partake in a festival with fellow vegans. Ultima happens to be a vegan beverage, but they’re campaign is about how it’s a “zero sugar, zero artificial” electrolyte drink. I got a real kick out of meeting business owners who are passionate and ready to put in the work that these events require.

Because I think that the good people of Gotham City and everywhere else need to be aware that a vegan diet does not sufficiently provide the vitamin B12. Thanks again, Batman.Folks, stay tuned for more compelling interviews as we continue to cover vitamins for vegans during Vegan MoFo. Our featured vitamin this week is B12.Disclaimer: neither Batman nor I are licensed nutritionists or physicians.

A four-day nonstop nerdgasm of guest stars, special screenings, exhibits, merchandise, and people pretending it’s okay to go out in public dressed as Jar Jar Binks.The only one bigger is the San Diego Comic Con, which I’ve been to twice – in 1999 and in 2009. So this deli was recommended to me because of its sandwich counter, salad bar, hot food bar, veggie sushi options, and a selection of nuts & dried fruits.
