  • 160ml whole milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 30 ml melted and cooled unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Chocolate sauce

  • 80g dark chocolate chips
  • 100ml whole milk
  • 2 tbsp runny honey

Method

  1. Make the chocolate sauce. Put all the ingredients for the chocolate sauce apart from the chocolate chips in a saucepan.
  2. Warm over medium heat, stirring to mix.
  3. Add the chocolate chips and stir with a small balloon whisk until melted and sauce is smooth. Transfer to a jug.
  4. Make the pancake batter. Sift the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder and salt into a large bowl.
  5. Mix the milk, egg, melted butter and vanilla extract together in a measuring jug.
  6. Gradually add the wet to the dry ingredients, mixing with a balloon whisk until just combined. Leave to rest for 15 minutes.
  7. Heat a tablespoon on rapeseed oil in a large non-stick frying pan. You will need to keep the pan over medium-high heat, adding more oil if necessary.
  8. Add half a ladleful of batter and cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip over and cook for a minute or so on the other side.
  9. Continue until all the batter is used.
