THICK AND FLUFFY PANCAKES

My most recent trip to Japan left me feeling inspired to do a lot of things, one of them being to experiment more with the food I create. During our visit we saw a lot of eateries offering thick and fluffy pancakes that looked amazing, but unfortunately weren’t vegan friendly, so I decided I had to try to recreate them at home. I was honestly so surprised with how great these turned out, I had to share the recipe!

Note: you will need a pancake mould (or a deep metal ring) in order to make this recipe.

Hello

My name is Zoe and I am a 22 year old student currently living in Melbourne, Australia.

I am currently in my first year of studying a Bachelor of Applied Science with a Master of Dietetic Practice at La Trobe University.

I have been a vegan for almost 6 years, and believe it is one of the best decisions I have ever made. I am extremely passionate about both ethical veganism and plant-based food, I believe in promoting this lifestyle as much as possible, for the health and wellbeing of animals, humans, and the planet alike.

I would like this space to act not only as a creative outlet for myself, but also as a useful resource for those considering adopting a vegan lifestyle or consuming more plant-based foods. I hope to contribute to this website through delicious plant-based recipes (here), discussion of nutrition related topics, and tips for transitioning to a plant-based diet.

I hope you enjoy the forthcoming posts and feel free to contact me with any queries you have.
