Anna's Family Kitchen was inspired by my love of food and desire to feed my family healthy, home cooked wholesome meals that are beautifully presented and appealing but don’t require hours of prep in the kitchen.

Sugar Free American Pancakes with Any Fruits

Serve these sugar free American Pancakes with any fruits you can lay your hands on and Greek Yogurt. American Pancakes traditionally have sugar added to the batter but served with fresh sweet fruits and raspberry coulis (which I have sweetened with maple syrup) they don’t need the sugar. This is one of my childrens’ favourite breakfasts. Even with the maple syrup in the coulis and the natural sugars in the fruit, this breakfast still has a quarter of the sugar they would get through a packet cereal serving. Much tastier too! The pancakes can be made in advance, kept in an airtight container and reheated when needed. The coulis will keep in the fridge for up to a week. It’s a great topper for porridge and granola.

Serves: 4

Prep:   5 minutes
Cooking: 5 minutes
Total:   10 minutes

Difficulty: easy



200g self raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 large egg
1 tsp melted butter
150ml milk
Raspberry coulis
300g fresh or frozen raspberries
2 tbsp maple syrup

Any other fresh fruits to serve – I used blueberries, passion fruit and figs
Natural Yogurt

Put the raspberries and maple syrup into a pan and simmer for 5 minutes. Take off the heat.
Whisk together all the pancake ingredients.
Get a large pan hot, wipe with oil or I used spray oil. Drop in three 10cm disks of batter at a time. Turn after two minutes. Give the other side of the pancakes two minutes and then set aside onto a warm plate (mine is from Neptune) until you’re ready to serve.

Top the pancakes with your choice of fruits, the coulis and a dollop of yogurt.
