Fruisana Fruit Sugar is a natural, healthier alternative to normal cane sugar that can be used in exactly the same way. Sprinkle Fruisana over pancakes drenched in lemon juice or use it to make delicious, home-made lemon curd or strawberry jam which can be spread over pancakes as an alternative.
Fruit Sugar is a natural sugar found in most fruits and honey. It tastes like ordinary cane sugar but is nearly twice as sweet, which means you use less. In addition, Fruisana has a low GI of 23 compared with cane sugar (65) which means it is absorbed more slowly into the bloodstream to provide a stable energy source that leaves your appetite satisfied for longer and avoids those blood sugar highs and lows that lead to hunger pangs.
To make pancakes (12)
100g (3 1/2 oz) Plain flour
300ml ( 1/2 pint) milk
Pinch of salt
Butter melted, for frying
1. Sift flour and salt into a mixing bowl.
2. Beat in the egg.
3. Gradually add milk blending to a smooth batter.
4. Heat 18cm (7inch) non-stick frying pan, lightly brushed with butter. When hot, pour in approx 2 tablespoons of batter, tilting the pan to coat the base evenly. Cook until pancake moves freely (tossing at this stage if you want to) or until golden.
