Pancakes aren’t just for Pancake Day and with some sensible filling options they can be enjoyed by all! – elaborate flipping optional.

Easy pancake recipe – Serves 2


  • 100g plain flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 300mls milk ( from daily milk allowance)
  • A little sunflower oil for frying


  1. Place the flour, eggs and milk into a bowl and whisk together into a smooth batter. Rest for 30minutes
  2. Wipe a frying pan with a little sunflower oil using a piece of kitchen towel. When hot, pour a little batter into the pan and fry until golden on each side.

Filling 1

One of the most widely used ingredients, milk is often referred to as a complete food. While cow…

For an alternative on that classic dessert lemon cheesecake, choose 1 pancake and top with the following:

  • 1 dollop of crème fraiche
  • 1 – 2 teaspoons of Lemon curd

Filling 2

Why not use as an alternative to a tortilla wrap and fill with grilled chicken, cucumber, shredded lettuce and mayonnaise. Add a small teaspoon of Pesto to your mayo for an Italian twist.  Lower in salt than pre-made tortillas, and makes lunchtime more exciting!

Filling 3 – serves 4

It is often thought that tomatoes must be excluded from a potassium lowering diet. However it is possible to have a main meal with a tomato based sauce, provided you don’t have potatoes that day. This filling for your pancake would be a good example of a suitable tomato based sauce.

  • 1 clove of Garlic
  • 1 Onion
  • 450g Mince beef
  • Cumin – 1/2 tsp
  • Chilli powder –1/2 tsp (or increase to your taste)
  • 1 can of chopped tomatoes
  • Jar of grilled red peppers
  1. Fry the onion garlic and spices in a small amount of oil, until the onions are softened. Add the mince beef and stir until browned.
  2. Add the chopped tomatoes and stir. Leave on a low heat to simmer for 30mins, or until the liquid has reduced.
  3. Chop and add the grilled red peppers for some added sweetness to the dish.
  4. Spoon about two dessert spoons of the mixture into each pancake and serve with a green salad.
  5. If you have any cheese left from your weekly allowance this could be sprinkled over the top and grilled.

Note that a small side salad would count as one of your 4 portions of fruit and veg/day if following a Potassium restriction.
