    This wholemeal pancake recipe makes eight regular-sized pancakes and will take just 10 mins to cook up a batch. They’re a great alternative to classic pancakes, especially if you’re trying to be healthy. Wholemeal foods keep you fuller for longer – and by using semi-skimmed milk you can enjoy without feeling guilty.


    • 125g (4½ oz) wholemeal flour
    • 1 medium egg
    • 300ml (½ pt) semi-skimmed milk


    • To start making your pancake recipe, place the flour in a large bowl, mix in the egg and gradually whisk in the milk to give a smooth batter.

    • Heat a little oil in a small frying pan and add a little of the batter to cover the base thinly.

    • Cook the pancake for 1 min until golden, turn and cook for 30 seconds. Repeat to make 8 pancakes and then use the tip to fill your pancake.
