Lemonade Pancakes

A favourite at our house for breakfast is Lemonade Pancakes. An easy recipe to whip up to feed the hungry hoards first thing in the morning - so easy that my kids actually mix it up themselves.
Lemonade Pancakes

Serves: 8
ProPoints per serve: 4
Old Points per serve: 2
(not including toppings)

2 cups plain flour
2 eggs
lemonade (we use Diet Lemonade)
cooking spray
Sift flour into a large bowl or jug. Make a well in the centre and crack both eggs into the flour. Mix with a whisk gently drawing flour in from the sides.

When mixture begins to become a ball add lemonade a little at a time, stirring constantly. Continue to add enough lemonade to make a thick yet runny batter.

Heat a large non-stick frying pan and spray with cooking oil. Pour a small amount of mixture into the pan, swirl to ensure mixture is even across the bottom of the pan (size of the pancakes is up to the individual). When small bubbles form in the top of the mixture flip over to cook the other side. When the second side is cooked remove to a plate and keep warm. Continue with remainder of mixture.

Toppings for pancakes are endless... lemon, caster sugar, butter, strawberry jam, honey, nutella, golden syrup and of course we cannot forget the maple syrup!
