What’s cosier on a gloomy Sunday morning than getting up and make a fresh batch of light and fluffy vegan pancakes.
Every family forms their own traditions and one of ours is to make Sunday pancakes, maybe not every Sunday but at least once a month. It’s just so warming to start the Sunday with a cosy tradition like this. Especially in the fall and winter when you need something comforting in the darkest days of the years.
Traditions for the winter
In Iceland the winter is very long and dark, so what I found very helpful in dealing with the “seasonal affective disorder” is to come up with a few ways to brighten up my days. Like baking pancakes on Sundays, having a few lamps in the living room, lighting candles or get out of the house when the day is the brightest and enjoy the daylight.
I have to admit that moving to the UK has made my battle with the darkness a bit easier, here it is already daylight when I wake up in the morning most of the year and the winter is far shorter than in Iceland. However, I always miss Iceland and probably always will.
But let’s move on to the lovely light and fluffy vegan pancakes. I absolutely love everything about these pancakes, the recipe is quick and easy to prepare and you only need a few ingredients everyone has on hand. They turn out perfect every single time I make them and the texture is just as I like it, light and fluffy. So incredibly delicious that I can never resist the urge to have one straight from the pan dipped into a little bit of syrup, Yum!
