200 ml water

200 ml orange juice

100 ml vegetable oil

300 g flour

1 orange zest

16 g baking powder

Mix the sugar with lukewarm water and orange juice, then add the oil and mix again. Add the flour and the orange zest, then the baking powder. Pour the mixture into a buttered baking tin and bake at 170°C for about 40 minutes.

Sugar-free banana pancakes

1 ripe banana

100 g flour

8 g baking powder

70 ml soy milk

1 pinch of salt


Vegetable oil

Mash the ripe banana and mix it with the flour. Add the baking powder, a pinch of salt and some cinnamon. Add the soy milk (or any other vegan drink you like), then mix all the ingredients together. Heat some vegetable oil in a pan, pour in a spoonful of pancake mixture and let it cook.
