    You might find something on this site...:confused:

    Best Ever Pancakes or Waffles
    1/2 cup flour
    1/2 cup whole wheat flour
    1 tablespoon sugar
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 cup buttermilk OR 3/4 c. plain yogurt + 1/4 c. water
    1 large egg​
    2 tablespoons oil

    Food processor method: Put the flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt into a food processor. Process briefly to mix. Add the buttermilk, or yogurt and water, egg and oil. Turn the machine on-off (pulse) 3 or 4 times to make a smooth batter. By hand method: Put the flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt into a large bowl. Stir to mix well. Measure the buttermilk in a 2-cup glass measure. Add the egg and oil to the measuring cup. Beat with a fork or wire whisk to blend. Add to the flour mixture and stir to form a smooth batter.

    For pancakes: Heat the griddle or skillet over moderately high heat until it feels hot when you hold your hand directly above it. Lightly grease the griddle. For each pancake, pour 1/4 cup batter onto the griddle. Cook 3-5 minutes, until bubbles appear on the surface and the undersides are golden brown. Adjust the heat if the pancakes are browning too fast. Turn the pancakes over and cook 1-2 minutes longer to brown the second side.

    For waffles: heat the waffle iron; grease it lightly. Pour in the appropriate amount of batter and spread to the edges. Close and cook until the iron will open easily. Keep finished waffles or pancakes warm in a 200ºF oven - pancakes on a plate and loosely covered to keep moist; waffles directly on the oven rack, uncovered, to stay crisp. Makes 8 4" pancakes.
    Serves 4.

    Theres also some pancake filling ideas from the site too :)

    Low POINTS value toppings include

    Muller light toffee yogurt POINTS value covers two pancakes - nice with sliced banana)

    lemon juice and sugar POINTS value for a teaspoon of sugar which goes a long way)

    mix cinnamon with sugar to make it taste more interesting and go further without adding extra POINTS values."

    sweetener and 2 heaped teaspoons of WW Strawberry Fruit Spread, only ½ POINTS value!

    rhubarb poached in sugar free lemonade for a Zero POINTS value filling and probably a sprinkling of sugar or icing sugar - and then brown under the grill

    "Low fat ice cream and strawberries - you could have it as 'afters' and it would be easier to stop at just one, whereas just one with lemon and sugar would more than likely lead to three or four!"

    I assume this is just plain flour? I've never made pancakes before (I steer clear of cooking whenever I can help it - a main meal for me and my OH once a day is quite enough cooking for me thanks, lol) but I quite fancy giving this a go!

    I remember having pancakes every year when I was younger, with lemon and sugar, mmmm!!!

    Oh, and when is pancake day?!
