Yummy pancakes with lemon sauce.

22 comments


Of course Pancakes can be eaten at any time but I dont know about you, we always forget, so Pancake day is an excuse to stuff oneself!!! Lol.
1 Orange
2 large eggs
100g flour
some sugar
pinch of salt
225ml skimmed milk
2-3 drops of vanilla essence
some oil for frying.

Zest the orange, add to beaten eggs, fold in flour, sugar, salt,vanilla adding milk and stir til smooth.

Lemon sauce.
2 lemons juiced with 2-3 tbsp of sugar or less.
place this juice & sugar in a pan and heat gently til sugar has dissolved. I think you could add a little cornflour to the juice to thicken it and cut back on sugar! Just a thought.

Fry your pancake as usual, roll up onto a plate and drizzle lemon on and serve with a dollop of fromage frais.
Believe it or not these are allowed on the diet that I have to follow and dont add up to too many syns!!!! I have allowed for two of these for my evening supper!
Hope you are all going to enjoy yours today too.

Thank you both, as i am always thinking about my next meal, Lol, (because my hands have nothing to do!) I was planning this recipe for tea and getting the ingredients ready!! Thought I would share.

Those sound good, Grandmage. I am in trouble because I didn't make any for my grandson's breakfast this morning - I completely forgot :(

I`ve just had one Grandmage, had to make one for hubby and made too much, lol, I have Golden Syrup on mine, yummy.
My daughter counts her syns so will ask her if she `d like one, therefore could possibly have another later...

Grandmage, T's on a diet and he says to thank you very much, we are having your pancakes tonight. :))

I regularly have cooked pancakes for breakfast for both my girls for the last 15yrs. at least once a week, so today it was as dessert instead.

love them best with butter and sugar. mmmmmm

I have all the ingredients too but OH on lates..will try them tomorrow though..thanks..:o)

21 Feb, 2012

 

Oh, yes, must have pancakes today! Family tradition - I make the batter and everyone has a go and then eats them whichever way they want. Jam for son-in-law, raspberries and ice cream for daughter, lemon juice sugar and a dollop of cream for me and just as they come for the wee lad. Sadly, son and wife missed out this time, as they were away. Still fun, though.

Seabg. if I ate pancakes too much I would be a very big girl, I struggle with my weight, so tonight is a very special occasion for me! Joane. enjoy tomorrow, any day will do Lol. Oji. all those flavours sound good, I also love maple syrup & lemon juice, good job its once a year for me then! Thanks all for your different ideas. Yum.

Reading this next morning ...... totally forgot it was Pancake Day yesterday! Aaaggggghhh! Will I have to wait until next year? Or shall I pretend it's today? ;o)

22 Feb, 2012

 

Just pretend Nariz . . . or make them any old day?!

Gran, yes, the shep. pie was v. tasty thanks - OH won't tell me how he makes it (such a tease!) but the aroma was making my mouth water for ages. He cooks every Tuesday, and his repertoire is definitely increasing, lol. :))

22 Feb, 2012

 

Oh yes pretend Nariz, you cannot wait another year!! Enjoy TODAY and dont forget Lol.
Sheila glad you enjoyed your shep. pie and how lovely that your hub. cooks every Tuesday, ask him, what is wrong with Monday, Wed. Thurs. or Frid Lol!! (my hub. does most of our cooking, lucky arent I?)
Hywel, nothing wrong with the bought ones, I am sure they are just as delicious.

22 Feb, 2012

 

Yes, my word you are lucky Gill! But I feel pretty lucky too, because OH always joins me in the kitchen and helps with the preparation, so that sometimes I feel like Delia, lol. And he'll quite often nip out for a take-away too, so I'm well looked after. :))

22 Feb, 2012

 

Well , OH asked what had brought this on , and I said that it was courtsey of Grandmage , and he sends his thanks ! We really enjoyed them . ( We are usually watching those callories ).

22 Feb, 2012

 

I like that Sheila, the two of you together, helping each other, it must be love.:~)
Driad, I am delighted you both enjoyed the pancakes, tell you OH that that was kind to say thank you, i appreciate it.

22 Feb, 2012

 

OK - that's IT! Pancakes today!
