Buttermilk pancakes

Buttermilk pancakes

A few people have asked us for a buttermilk pancake recipe, which uses xylitol. So here it is...


  • 350g/12oz self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp Total Sweet xylitol
  • 200ml/7fl oz buttermilk
  • 400ml/14fl oz semi-skimmed milk
  • 2 free-range eggs
  • 85g/3oz unsalted butter, melted, plus extra for frying


  • In a bowl, sift together the flour, bicarbonate of soda, salt and Total Sweet xylitol.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the buttermilk, milk, eggs and butter. Pour the wet mixture into the dry ingredients and stir to combine. Do not overbeat.
  • Melt a small knob of butter in a large frying pan. Using a ladle, pour some batter into the pan to make a pancake.
  • Cook the pancakes for about a minute, or until the underside is golden brown and the top is bubbling. Turn them over and cook for another minute. Keep the pancakes warm in a very low oven while you cook the remaining batter.
  • Enjoy topped with fruit and a sprinkle of Total Sweet.
