This delicious short stack recipe was shared with us by the talented vegan recipe creator behind Fat Free Vegan. It was for an Easter Brunch feature many years ago.
Serves: 10 servings
  • 1 cup unbleached flour
  • 1¼ cups whole wheat flour (I used white whole wheat; ww pastry flour is another good option)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 pinch ground cloves
  • 1½ cups orange juice, plus additional as needed
  • ¼ cup golden raisins (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  1. Spray a non-stick frying pan or griddle lightly with oil, and begin heating it on medium-high. Meanwhile, whisk the flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves together in a mixing bowl.
  2. Add the juice, raisins (if using), and zest, and stir until just combined. A few lumps are okay. If the batter becomes too thick to pour, whisk in a little more orange juice, as needed.
  3. When the skillet is hot, drop the batter by quarter-cupfuls and cook until the tops are beginning to bubble. Turn and cook a couple more minutes until the underside is golden and the inside is cooked. Repeat until all of the batter is used up.
  4. Serve immediately. Leftovers can be flash frozen and reheated in the toaster for a quick weekday breakfast.
