• Buttermilk is low-fat and makes light fluffy pancakes . If you don ’ t have buttermilk you can make your own by adding 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice to 250ml ( 1 cup ) full cream milk .
• To reheat pancakes , place between baking paper and warm in a sandwich press .
• If you don ’ t have rind moulds , spoon 1 / 3 cup of batter per pancake into greased frying pan .
• These are great packed in a lunchbox as a snack ; simply cut pancakes into four wedges and sandwich two together with a little cream cheese .
