Transfer to a heatproof plate cover with foil to keep warm and repeat with remaining mixture to make 12 pancakes, brushing pan with remaining butter between batches.
Meanwhile to make mandarin syrup, combine, remaining sugar and the water in a saucepan over low heat and cook, stirring until sugar dissolves and then increase heat, bring to the boil and boil gently, uncovered, for 5 minutes or until slightly syrupy.
Remove from heat and stir in half the mandarin segments and stand for 5 minutes and using a slotted spoon to transfer mandarin segment to a plate, reserving syrup.
