This Shrove Tuesday I’m going to try two different pancake recipes. I tried the Slimming Pancake recipe as sweet and savoury (by missing out the sugar), and the Syn Free Pancakes as savoury – check out what I filled them with later today…
Recipe courtesy of Slimming World website.
Sift the flour into a bowl. Beat the eggs, add to the bowl along with the fromage frais and mix. Add the sugar, milk and vanilla essence and whisk to form a smooth batter. Chill for at least 30 minutes.
Lightly spray a non-stick frying pan with Fry Light, place over a medium heat until hot. Add a small ladleful of batter, swirling to cover the base and cook for 1-2 minutes on each side until golden and set. Remove and stack between non-stick paper while making 7 more pancakes.
Slimming World Syns: these pancakes are about 2 Syns each. If you miss out the sugar – substituting sweetener, or making them savoury – they are about 1.6 Syns each.
Separate the white from the yolk and put into separate bowls.
Heat a frying pan with Fry Light. Add the half mix and spread as you would a normal pancake. After a few mins flip over. Give it a good squeeze with your fish slice (or other preferred pancake flipping device). Flip over again. Squeeze.
Serve with your preferred filling.
Top Tip: you will need to cook them longer than normal to stop them tasting like a sweet omelette or scrambled eggs. The squeezing will help! After making a few you’ll see you can use less pancake mix and cook them for longer.
