Lots of celebrations to look forward to shrove Tuesday on the 16th February. Our Slimtone recipe fpr pancakes is another favourite and can be enjoyed as a tasty dessert at any time.
PANCAKES (basic recipe) Makes 8-10 pancakes
4 oz plain flour pinch of salt
½ pint skimmed milk low fat cooking spray
Lemon juice 1 medium size egg
Sieve flour and salt into bowl, add egg and half of the skimmed milk and beat to a smooth creamy batter. Stir in the remaining milk. Mist non-stick pan with cooking spray, pour in 2-3 tblspns of the batter mixture (enough to cover the base of the pan evenly) cook over a medium heat until golden brown, toss or turn and fry other side. Keep warm between two plates over a pan of simmering water. If using a 7” pan this mixture will make 10 pancakes @ 60 cals each. If using 8-9” pan this mixture will make 8 pancakes @ 75 cals each.
Don’t forget your one calorie cooking spray and Jif lemon…
A squeeze of lemon juice with a sprinkling of sugar is all very nice, but lets get creative . . . .
