Food: Cherry Bakewell Pancakes


Weekends for me mean one thing, pancakes.

The pancake recipe page in our Delia Smith cookbook is well and truly worn out from the amount of times pancakes have been made in my household, and it was something I definitely did not want to give up once I started Weight Watchers.

Whilst I gave the banana and egg pancakes a go, they didn't really do it for me, then a stumble on the Filling and Healthy Fanatics Facebook page and I found a recipe I love. I've experimented with numerous different flavours and ways to make it, but this one blew my socks off and I decided I just had to share.

I hope you enjoy.

P.S Keep your eyes peeled for some more cherry goodness coming your way in the next week or so!

"Cherry Bakewell Pancakes" servings="2" time="10mins" difficulty="easy"

You will need:

100g of oats blitzed into flour

1 egg

200 ml of milk (I use either unsweetened almond or skimmed)

1 tsp of Almond essence

A bowl of cherries (I use frozen ones that I shove in the microwave for a minute)

1tsp of Icing sugar

A splash of water

To make:

1) Mix your oats, egg, milk and almond essence together until it forms a batter.

2) Spritz a pan with fry light and pour your batter into the frying pan. Cook on each side until it's just browning.

3) Layer each pancake with cherries.

4) Once you've made your stack, mix the icing sugar with a splash of water, then drizzle over the top of your pancakes.


This is 0pp on Filling and Healthy. I tend to serve 3 pancakes for each person.

For normal pancakes, stop after the milk and cook as stated.
