Golden Milk Sauce

Buttermilk Pancake Batter


Prepare the sauce:

  1. Whisk together all of the ingredients except for the powdered sugar until smooth.
  2. Using a fine-mesh sieve, sift in the powdered sugar. This will help prevent clumps and will ensure that your sauce is smooth.
  3. Whisk until smooth and set aside.*

Prepare the batter:

  1. Prepare a flax egg. In a small bowl, combine the flaxseed meal along with the water and mix until uniform. Set aside for 10-15 minutes to thicken.
  2. Preheat a griddle or medium/large nonstick pan over medium heat.
  3. In another bowl, mix together the almond milk and apple cider vinegar. Set the mixture aside to rest for 5-10 minutes. The almond milk will curdle, forming a vegan buttermilk.
  4. In the meantime, prepare the dry ingredients. In a large bowl, whisk together 1 cup of flour (to start), the baking powder, vegan cane sugar and salt until uniform. Once the flax egg and buttermilk are ready, add those into the dry ingredients along with the vanilla extract. Whisk together until just combined but do not over-stir as this creates tough pancakes. Add 1-3 tablespoons more flour as needed if the dough is wateryРwe added 2 more.
  5. Lightly grease the non-stick pan or griddle and add the pancake batter 1/4 cup at a time. Flip once the edges begin to dry and bubbles appear on the surface. and cook for a few minutes more.
  6. Serve warm with the golden milk sauce.
