The 68 calorie pancake for Shrove Tuesday

Breezing through Shrove Tuesday with the 68 calorie pancake

1 Min

Pancakes are delicious – but they can pack a pile of calories. With that in mind, try Nutra Check Nutritionist Emma Brown's best low-fat pancake recipe at only 68 cals and enjoy Shrove Tuesday without derailing your diet.

And you can get creative with some scrummy toppings that are actually quite good for you. These all hit the sweet spot without maxing out your daily calorie count.

Ingredients

Makes 10, 68 kcals per serving

115g plain flour
2x medium eggs
300ml skimmed milk
90ml Water
Frylight
Blueberries for décor

Method

1. Combine the milk and the water in a jug.

2. Sift the flour into a bowl and make a well in the middle. Break the 2 eggs into it. Begin whisking the eggs, 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 you have formed a smooth batter.

4. Heat a frying pan over a high heat with 2-3 sprays of Frylight until hot. Put 2 tbsp of batter into a ladle and add to the centre of the pan.

5. 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.

6. Remove from pan onto a warm plate. Serve with a topping that fits your diet or make that bit your guilty pleasure (we won't tell).
