From the Australian Women's Weekly 'Best Ever Recipes' book. There is no sugar in these pancakes. Also requires standing for 30minutes before cooking - but I'm sure it would still work without doing this.

This is definitely a mislabeled recipe. Following the recipe exactly as it is written yields crepe batter, not pancake batter. I added almost another 1/2 cup of flour and about 3 tablespoons of sugar, and they did taste good after those additions, but without a traditional leavening agent they were still very flat and definitely tasted crepe-y.

Following the recipe exactly they turned out more like crepes (very thin batter) so we added a little more flour and about a half teaspoon of sugar to get a thicker batter and a more traditional looking pancake. Either way they were pretty tasty.

I can't see how they would even get golden brown without a tiny bit of sweetener in this. Does it really work? Someone try it and review it please!
