If you can't resist a Shrove Tuesday treat though, how about making these low-in-fat pancakes? They are a much smaller 68 calories per serving, meaning you can stick to your diet and enjoy a pancake.

  • 115g plain flour
  • 2 x medium eggs
  • 300ml skimmed milk
  • Fry Light


1 Combine the milk and water in a jug.

2 Sift the flour into a bowl and make a well in the middle. Break the 2 eggs into it and start whisking them, incorporating the flour as you do so.

3 Gradually add the milk and water mixture, still whisking, until all the liquid has been added and have formed a smooth batter.

4 Heat a frying pan over a high heat with 2-3 sprays of the oil until hot.

5 Put 2 tablespoons of batter into a ladle and add to the centre of the pan.

6 Check when edges become loose (about 20 seconds) and the batter has solidified. Then, with a pan slice, turn the pancake over and cook for a few more seconds.

7 Remove from the pan onto a warm plate. Serve with a topping of your choice – just remember to add in the extra calories!
