  • 4 eggs

  • 1½ cups self-raising flour

  • 1½ cups (375mL) skim milk

  • 1 tbs low fat spread


  • 1.

    Sift flour into a bowl. Make a well in the centre. Whisk together the milk and eggs in a large bowl.

  • 2.

    Add the milk mixture to the flour mixture, whisking constantly until a smooth batter forms.

  • 3.

    Heat a non-stick frying pan over low heat and melt a little low fat spread.

  • 4.

    Add 2 tablespoons of mixture, spread quickly to form a circle. Cook until bubbly, a little dry around the edges, and lightly browned on the bottom; turn and brown the other side.

    Serve these delicious pancakes with your favourite topping.


Makes 20 small pancakes.

*Using a large frying pan with one small ladle full of batter will give you a crepe style pancake, which are best for flipping.
