Pancake Day Recipes: Grapefruit Pancakes

Pancake Day has come round once again and this time we’re all being more adventurous with our pancake choices.

If you’re a grapefruit fan, why not try these wholemeal grapefruit pancakes to brighten up your day?

They have been created by Lisa Faulkner for Florida Grapefruit and here’s what you’ll need to make yours –

Grapefruit Pancakes


100ml natural yoghurt

200mls skimmed milk

1 egg

1 tsp bicarb

100g SR Flour

75g Wholemeal SR flour

½ tsp salt

1tbsp sugar

50g melted butter

Grated zest of 1 Florida grapefruit and the segments


Zest the Florida grapefruit and set aside. Then peel and segment and leave in its juice.

Mix all the dry ingredients together inc the grapefruit zest. Mix all the wet ingredients together in a separate bowl. Then mix both together, but don’t over beat it. Leave the batter to sit for 10 mins.

Melt a little butter or spray a little oil in a frying pan and when it is hot, ladle in. Turn, when the pancakes form little holes on the top.

I find that half a ladle gives a nice American style pancake.

Serve with the fresh Florida grapefruit segments.
