Ingredients

  • 225g self-raising flour
  • 50g cocoa powder , sieved
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 400ml whole milk
  • 100g dark chocolate chips
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 50g unsalted butter , cubed

To serve

  • 300ml double cream
  • 2 tbsp icing sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla paste
  • mixed berries (optional)
  • maple syrup (optional)

Method

  • STEP 1

    Tip the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and sugar into a large bowl with a small pinch of salt. Add the eggs and whisk until smooth. Gradually whisk in the milk until you have a smooth batter, then mix in the chocolate chips.

  • STEP 2

    Heat a splash of the oil and a little of the butter in a non-stick frying pan until sizzling. Cook the pancakes, using 2 tbsp batter for each, for 2 mins until bubbles start to form on the surface. Flip and cook for 2 mins more (you'll need to do this in batches). Keep the pancakes warm in a low oven while you cook. 

  • STEP 3

    To serve, whip the cream with the icing sugar and vanilla until thick. Top the pancakes with the whipped cream, berries and maple syrup, if using.
