Magic Oaty Vanilla and Orange Ovencakes

This is a well known recipe for many, and will be new to some, I know it is definitely to me because I can just never muster the patience to stand frying pancakes. But I am a little busier at weekends now so I need to prepared and these little beautys are just perfect with amazing filling power! And now they are even easier you can make your mix in 2 minutes before you leave for work pop in the fridge and then into the oven the night before you need them, especially if you are busy with work, school runs college etc.


Makes 24 Ovencakes

4 large eggs.
35g of porridge oats.
1 fat free vanilla yogurt.
2 dessert spoons of fat free 0% greek yogurt.
6 dessert spoons of sweetener.
Zest of 1 orange.
2 tsps of vanilla extract.
24 foil cases.
Low calorie cooking spray.


Weigh your oats, add to a bowl with the eggs, sweetener, yogurt and vanilla extract, cover and place in the fridge overnight or for at least 2 hours. This will ensure the oats swell and will give you a thicker batter to work with.

When you remove the mix from the fridge you will need to to mix it well as the egg will seperate and rise to the top.

Spray each foil case with low calorie cooking spray and place 1 dessert spoon of the mix into each case.


Place in the oven @180 for 15/20 minutes. When the top is starting to brown and pulling away from the side of the cases, I remove from the oven and flip them over just like a pancake. Leave in for a further 5 minutes, remove from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool or staright on your plate 😉


Of course any flavours can be used, I have made some by adding some mixed spice to the remainder of the batter along with some finely grated carrot for a different texture and flavour.


I hope you all enjoy guys and dolls!
