So my question to everyone is what are you gonna do? Are you avoiding the fact it is pancake day or are you usin your flexi syns or is there a decent sw alternative?? Help please!! Xx

    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 think there's a thread on the syn free ones in the recipe forum with reviews from people who have tried them.

    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
