Easy basic vegan pancakes

This is a very easy basic vegan pancake recipe. Actually, it is so easy that it is almost boring. But the good thing is that this recipe always works. Another good thing is that you don’t need any exotic ingredients. On my Instagram feed you will find many recipes (my family loves pancakes, and I love creating new pancake recipes), but this one is really basic. The proportions are easy to remember. The whole process will take approximately 20 minutes and, they taste pretty good! However, if you don’t find them sweet enough, feel free to add a little bit of sweetener of your choice (top them with maple syrup, for instance), or add a spoonful of raisins into the butter before baking.
