One Yummy Mummy’s pancakes four ways including syn free and very sinful

We are huge fans of pancakes in Yummy HQ, and it doesn’t need to be pancake Tuesday to enjoy them.

I make my porridge pancakes most weeks, but I thought for the week that’s in it would be nice to make pancakes four ways – from the syn free to the sinful (if you can’t have sinful pancakes on pancake Tuesday then when can you have them eh..?)

The Slimming World syn free ones are for myself (I’m trying to be good,) and you know they don’t taste half bad.  

The porridge ones are great if you are trying to sneak the good stuff into the smallies (they are one of my most popular recipes since posting it last year).

I’ve also added my regular pancake recipe, which is one I have been using for years.

As for the grand finale? They’re scrumptious chocolate and butter milk pancakes, and yes, they’re really sinful!! They taste amazing topped with maple syrup and marshmallows.

So it’s up to you, you can be saintly or go the whole hog this pancake Tuesday and be a sinner (for one day at least).
