    • Total time: 35 minutes

    Makes: 12 pancakes

    Ingredients

    175g plain flour
    1 tbsp baking powder
    ½ tsp salt
    50g light brown soft sugar
    25g cocoa powder
    300ml whole milk
    1 tsp vanilla bean paste
    1 medium Waitrose British Blacktail Egg
    60g butter
    A little oil, for frying (optional)

    FOR THE CHOCOLATE SAUCE
    170ml pot double cream
    1 tsp clear honey
    75g dark chocolate, finely chopped
    Raspberries, to serve
     

    Method

    1. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, brown sugar and cocoa powder in a large bowl or large jug. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients.

    2. In a small jug, beat together the milk, vanilla and egg. Slowly pour the wet ingredients into the well you’ve made in the dry ingredients, whisking until the mixture is smooth.

    3. Melt the butter in a frying pan over a medium heat, swirling it round to coat the base, then beat into the batter. Leave the frying pan on the heat, ready to fry the pancakes.

    4. Use an ice-cream scoop or pour a few tbsp of batter into the centre of the frying pan. Try to get as close to a circle (about 10cm in size) as you can so the finished pancakes stack neatly on top of each other. Cook the pancakes for 1 minute on each side and then place onto a serving plate. Repeat the cooking process with the remaining batter, using a little oil for frying if necessary, until you have 12 pancakes.

    5. To make the chocolate sauce, heat the cream and honey in a small pan until steaming. Remove from the heat and stir in the chocolate until it melts and the sauce is smooth. Serve the pancakes in stacks, drenched with chocolate sauce and scattered with a few raspberries.
