Chocolate Pancake Recipe

When I saw cherries in the supermarket, I knew that I wanted to make some delicious chocolate pancakes to eat them with.

This recipe is easy to whip up and the pancakes keep well in the fridge for a day or so – so you can make them ahead of time.

You will need

180g plain flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

3 tablespoons soft brown sugar

2 medium eggs

250ml skimmed milk

35g cocoa powder

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 tablespoons sunflower oil

Spray oil

Milk chocolate chips or chocolate spread



  • Warm the milk in a saucepan
  • Add the cocoa powder.  Mix until combined and then set aside to cool slightly
  • In a bowl combine the sugar, baking powder and flour
  • Add the eggs to the dry ingredients along with the sunflower oil and vanilla extract
  • Whisk together.  The mixture will be almost breadcrumb-like
  • Once the chocolate milk is just warm, pour it in to the bowl and whisk together
  • Don’t over whisk, the ingredients should be just combined
  • Cook on a hot plate or frying pan with a little spray oil
  • Stack with a sprinkling of chocolate chips or a steak of chocolate spread between each pancake

  • Top with cherries and chocolate chips

The pancakes are so delicious and rich – they taste like cake!
