Serves: 4


100g plain flour
1 essential Waitrose Free Range Egg
300ml semi skimmed milk
2 tbsp Waitrose Seriously Chocolatey Chocolate Spread
2 tbsp oil
500ml tub Waitrose Seriously Creamy Maple & Pecan Ice Cream
8 tbsp Waitrose Seriously Chocolatey Chocolate Dipping Sauce


1. Place the flour in a large bowl and make a hollow in the centre. Whisk the egg into the flour then gradually whisk in the milk to form a smooth batter. Warm the chocolate spread in the microwave for 30 seconds and mix into the batter.

2. Heat a little oil in an 18–20cm frying pan (or pancake pan). Pour in half a ladle of batter, spread to thinly coat the base of the pan and cook for 1–2 minutes. Flip over and cook for 1 minute. Repeat to make 8 pancakes.

3. Spoon a ball of ice cream in the centre of each pancake, fold over the sides and place on the plates. Warm the dipping sauce in the microwave for 30 seconds, drizzle over the pancakes and serve.
