First Attempt: Not so pillowy

In a search for some plain vegan pancakes, I found this recipe. I liked the idea of puffy pillow pancakes. Who wouldn't want puffy pillow pancakes?

My first attempt this morning were not so pillowy. I even followed all the tips to let the batter rest and not heat the griddle to hot. I think my batter was too runny to start. Never fear, I will try again.

Puffy Pillow Pancakes

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup almond milk
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon ground flax seeds
1/2 cup water

3 tablespoons canola oil
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

In a large mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well in the center. Measure the milk into a measuring cup. Add vinegar and ground flax seeds, and use a fork to vigorously mix the ingredients until foamy. This will take a minute or so. Pour the milk mixture into the center of the dry ingredients. Add the water, canola oil and vanilla and use a fork to mix until a thick, lumpy batter forms.

Preheat the pan over medium-low heat and let the batter rest for 10 minutes. Lightly coat the pan in oil. Add 1/3 cup of batter for each pancake, and cook for about 4 minutes, until puffy. Flip the pancakes, adding a new coat of oil to the pan, and cook for another 3 minutes or so. Pancake should be about an inch thick, and golden brown.
