Equipment

  • Nonstick frying pan

Ingredients
  

  • 140 grams (4.94 ounces) of fresh okara
  • 4 tablespoons granulated sugar or to taste
  • 120 grams (4.23 ounces) of plain flour
  • 20 grams (0.71 ounces) of cornflour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 8 grams (2 teaspoons) of baking powder
  • 2 large eggs beaten
  • 200 grams (7.05 ounces) of milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla paste
  • Oil or butter for frying

Instructions
 

  • Place the okara in a bowl and use a fork to fluff it up and break up any lumps.
  • Add the sugar, flour, cornflour, salt, and baking powder into a bowl and mix to combine.
  • In another bowl add the eggs, vanilla paste, and milk mix well. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry.
  • Mix the batter until just combined.
  • Heat a nonstick frying pan over low heat, add a little oil or butter, pour in a scant ¼ cup of pancake batter, and cook on low heat until bubbles appear on top and the bottom has turned a golden brown.
    Flip and cook the other side and cook for 1-2 minutes or until it has turned golden brown. Repeat the process for the remaining pancake batter. Serve hot or warm with your choice of toppings.

Notes

If the batter is too thick
If the batter seems too thick, add a little more milk.
Use a nonstick pan 
Using a nonstick pan not only stops the pancakes from sticking to the pan, but you can also reduce the amount of oil or butter needed, making it a lighter and healthier dish.
Avoid burning
Don't rush cooking these pancakes - these should be cooked over low heat.
Measuring the batter
To make 12 even-sized pancakes use a ¼ cup to measure the batter., but do not fill to the top. The batter level should be slightly below the top of the cup.
How to tell when a pancake is ready to flip?
A pancake is ready to flip when:
  1. Bubbles rise and start to form on the surface, and they will pop, creating little holes on top and
  2. The edges of the pancakes start to look dry and set.
