Shrove Tuesday Chocolate Pancakes

200g self raising flour

50g cocoa or cacao powder

1 tsp baking powder

2 eggs

300ml milk

100g dark chocolate chips

Butter for frying


Mix all the ingredients apart from the butter together with a hand whisk or electric whisk in a bowl.

Heat a small frying pan to a high heat and add a small knob of butter and allow it to bubble.

Add a small ladle of pancake batter to that pan and fry for about 1 minute and flip and fry a further 1 minute on the other side.

Put the pancake to one side - add a small amount of butter back in the frying pan and repeat making pancakes until the mixture is all used up.


Serve with natural yogurt, maple syrup, mixed nuts and berries.
