    Chocolate pancakes with fruit compote and hot chocolate sauce

    These delicious pancakes are made with the help of some ready-prepared products from the chiller cabinet for an easy Pancake Day with a difference.

    • Vegetarian
    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 20 minutes
    • Total time: 30 minutes 30 minutes

    Serves: 4


    100g pack Gü Mini Puds: 2 Cheeky & Saucy Little Chocolate Puds (from the chiller cabinets)
    100g Waitrose Superfine Plain Flour
    1 medium egg, lightly beaten
    250ml semi-skimmed milk
    1 tbsp vegetable oil

    To serve:

    225g tub Yeo Valley Organic Fruit Compote (red)
    4 tbsp half-fat crème fraîche


    1. Melt one of the chocolate puds according to pack instructions. Sift the flour into a bowl and mix in the egg and milk, followed by the melted chocolate pud. Use a balloon whisk to combine well.
    2. Dip a piece of rolled up kitchen paper into the oil and rub over an 18cm pancake or crêpe pan, then heat over a moderate heat. Pour 2-3 tbsp of the chocolate batter into the pan, tilting it so that the batter covers the base thinly and evenly.
    3. Cook for about 1 minute, or until the pancake is set and coloured underneath. Loosen the edges with a palette knife then either turn the pancake over or toss. Cook the second side for about 30 seconds, or until just set.
    4. Slide the pancake onto a plate, cover with baking parchment or foil and keep warm. Use the oil to cook the remaining batter in the same way, to make another 7 pancakes. Add each one to the warm plate, layering with baking parchment.
    5. To serve, fill each pancake with a spoonful of compote and a small dollop of crème fraîche before folding into quarters. Heat the remaining chocolate pud, as before, and drizzle over the pancakes.
