1. Vegan Pancakes
- 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

Sift flour, baking powder, salt and sugar together in a large bowl. Make a well in the mixture. In another bowl, whisk oil and water together and pour it in the well of dry ingredients. Mix well till it becomes lumpy.

Vegan Chocolate Ice Cream

- ½ tsp xanthan gum
- 2 tsp vanilla sugar
- ½ cup confectioners’ sugar

Melt chocolate in the top of a double boiler over boiling water. Stir and scrape the sides frequently with a rubber spatula to prevent scorching. Take away from heat and let it cool for 10 minutes.
Take aquafaba in a bowl of a stand mixer having a whisk attachment. Beat it on high speed for around a minute, till it becomes fluffy and increase in volume four times. Now add xanthan gum and beat again for another 30 seconds. Now add vanilla sugar and confectioners’ sugar. Keep beating till the foam becomes glossy and firm, i.e. around 2 more minutes.
Wrap the melted chocolate with the whipped foam completely and shift to a lidded container. Refrigerate till it becomes firm, i.e. anywhere from 8 hours to overnight.
