Quite a lot I think as flour is something like 5.5 syns per tbsp. I remember i once made a sw friendly batter using 2 tbsp of flour and it only made 2 pancakes so that was like 5 or more syns per pancake.

I think I will just go for my lemon pancakes as usual and syn them. They are to die for with lemon curd and a few raspberries, but I think that is a step to far.

It is an American recipe so you need to convert the measurements.

The Metric Kitchen

3/4 cup all–purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
1 cup ricotta cheese
2 eggs
2/3 cup milk
1 lemon, zested and juiced
Butter, for griddle
1 (11–ounce) jar prepared lemon curd
Fresh raspberries, for garnish
Confectioners’ sugar, for garnish

Preheat a nonstick griddle.
Combine flour, baking powder, nutmeg, salt, and sugar in a small bowl.
Whisk together the cheese, eggs, milk, lemon juice and zest in a large bowl. Whisk the flour mixture into the wet ingredients until just combined.
Brush the hot griddle with butter. For each pancake, pour approximately 1/4 cup measure of the batter on the griddle and cook on both sides until light golden brown. Repeat until no batter remains.
Empty the contents of the lemon curd into a small saucepan and warm over low heat. Alternatively, remove the lid and place in a microwave oven on 50 percent power for 2 minutes, stopping after 1 minute to stir the curd.
Drizzle a few tablespoons of the curd over the pancakes, top with fresh raspberries, and sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar.

I've made those before, they were ok but a bit odd because they're basically just thin, sweet omelettes! I think for pancake day I'd rather just syn a couple of real ones!! Love the sound of those sweet potato ones too!!! Xxxxx

There's a low syn recipe on the SW website - 1.5 syns per pancake - they look great, or they say a ready made mix (128g) making 12 pancakes is approx. 2 syns a pancake xx
