Serves 4-5 | Prep time: 15 mins | Cooking time: 20 mins


  • 250g Potatoes, grated // from 3 small potatoes
  • 1 cup Self raising flour // 130g
  • 1 cup Plant milk // 250g
  • 30g Lemon juice // from 1 small lemon
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Black pepper
  • lots of Vegan cheddar or mozzarella cheese, shredded (recommended: Biolife, Wise Bunny, Follow Your Heart)


  • Salad as a side
  • Vegan sour cream to serve (recommended: Tofutti, Kite Hill, Alpro)
  • Parsley as a garnish


  • Grater
  • Mixing bowl
  • Large non-stick pan
  • Ladle and spatula


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine everything together except for the vegan cheese (and the optional ingredients) and mix well.
  2. Heat some vegetable oil in a large non-stick pan on high flame.
  3. Sprinkle vegan cheese evenly over the pan.
  4. Reduce heat to a medium flame and spread some batter on the top of the cheese.
  5. Cook for 2-3 minutes over low-medium flame, bubbles should form during this time.
  6. When the bubbles have popped flip the pancake over and cook for another 2 minutes or so.
  7. Repeat with the remaining batter and cheese.
  8. Serve with a side salad, some vegan sour cream, and top with a bit of parsley.

Notes: Leftover batter can be stored covered in the refrigerator for about 4-5 days. Pancakes can be made in advance and frozen for future meals, simply lay baking paper in between when freezing for ease of separation.

I never really liked to cook before. To me, cooking was a laborious chore in exchange for the pointlessly short enjoyment of eating. That is until I became a vegan! Only then did I care to create the foods I craved, as I was motivated to do what's right by the animals, and was equally equipped with a newfound enthusiasm to play around with culinary possibilities.
