Hot Chocolate Pancakes. This pancake says ‘just 5 more minutes in bed please’. You can’t do this recipe justice without marshmallows and squirty cream. Duvet and slipper socks are mandatory too. This is the perfect pancake for a lazy weekend.


Serves 4

  • 175g Plain Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Mug of Hot Chocolate (made with 250ml of Milk)
  • 2 tbsp Butter
  • 50g Chocolate Chips

Serve with:

  • Our quick and delicious Chocolate Sauce recipe


Whisk Up Your Batter

  • First make up a cup of hot chocolate with around 250ml of milk and set aside.
  • Mix together the flour, bicarbonate of soda, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl.
  • Make a well in the middle of your mixture and crack in the egg. Gradually add your hot chocolate and whisk until you have a smooth batter.
  • Stir in your melted butter and chocolate chips and try not to lick the spoon!

Cooking Your Pancakes

  • Heat a large frying pan to medium-high heat. Add a little butter and allow to melt
  • Add a large spoon of mixture to your pan – use the back of a spoon to smooth the pancake into a circle shape as it cooks. Let the underside cook until browned – you should see small bubbles appearing on the surface.
  • Turn the pancake with your spatula and cook the other side until lightly coloured.
  • The great thing about hot chocolate pancakes is that if they’re slightly burnt they just taste even more yummy like rich chocolate brownies.
