We've developed a pancake recipe which is low in calories. This low calorie pancake recipe is so easy to make and keeps the waistline at bay. We've substituted some of the milk of a traditional pancake with water and we've used a low cal spray (1 cal per spray) instead of oil or butter to grease the pan.
In a jug, combine the milk and a little bit of water.
Sift the flour into a bowl and make a well in the middle. Break the 2 eggs into it. Begin whisking the eggs whilst incorporating some flour as go.
Form a smooth batter by gradually add the milk and water mixture. Whisk until this happens.
Heat a frying pan over a high heat with 2-3 sprays of 1 calorie spray until hot. Using a ladle, put 2 tbsp of batter in the centre of the pan.
Check when edges become loose and the batter has solidified, turn the pancake over (flip it if you dare!) and cook on the other side until golden.
We've topped ours with strawberries and raspberries for a slimming treat.

Ues protein powders instead of flour

These turned out great! But can I use self-raising flour?
Hi there, its is best to use plain flour in a traditional pancake recipe as you don't want them to 'puff' up too much. However an American style pancake often uses self-raising flour or plain flour with baking powder as this will help give the 'fluffy', thicker texture that is characteristic of this type of pancake. Happy baking :)

Great pancakes! I’m not usually successful at making them but these were perfect.

Terrible recipe not at all like the picture. Far too much liquid ratio

This is just regular pancakes using regular ingredients... with some skimmed milk? An alternative to plain flour is needed, as all flour is about 350 cal per 100g and unless you are eating a tiny pancake, adds up extremely quickly.

These are more like crepes than pancakes.

Terrible. It had the texture of crepes and was almost as flat. I added some baking powder to the last half of the batch and it was a touch better but still not even remotely the consistency of a pancake.

I used almond milk instead of skimmed milk and it was delicious! Needed to add additional flour but otherwise it was perfect.
