Pancake Day Recipe

With Pancake Day nearly upon us I thought I'd share one of my favourite recipes with you. They are a little naughty luxury we have every now and then on a Sunday morning. I love the idea of them but in reality they do take forever to cook up a whole batch! You either have to keep them warm or you end up eating them as you make them. We tend to put the oven on low and keep them all warm until all the batter has been used up. That way everyone can eat and indulge together.

These are very gooey and chocolatey with fruity bursts of blueberry. So good!

You will need:

For the Pancakes:
Adapted from BBC Food

   135g/4¾oz plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • 130ml/4½fl oz milk
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 tbsp melted butter  (allowed to cool slightly), plus extra for cooking
  • Milk Chocolate Chips
  • Fresh Blueberries

For the chocolate sauce:

   55g/2oz caster sugar
  • A splash hot water
  • 30g/1¼oz cocoa powder

To make your pancakes, melt the butter and allow to cool slightly. Add the melted butter to the milk and egg and beat. Measure out your dry ingredients and sieve them into the wet. Mix until you have a smooth batter (a few small lumps don't matter). Add in the desired amount of chocolate chips & blueberries. 

Heat a frying pan on a medium heat and melt a little butter. Pour in some batter (I usually judge by eye, you could add half a ladle full or so depending on your pan size). The batter will soon start to form little bubbles on top, telling you that it is time to flip it over. Cook until golden brown on each side.

To make your chocolate sauce, simply mix the sugar and cocoa powder with a little hot water until it is of desired consistency. Heat it through on a low to medium heat until smooth.

If you have a love for Pancakes, Sainsbury's are offering four prizes for the best Twitter Pancake Selfie. All you have to do is follow and tweet a photo of your pancake to @SainsburyPR and @Sainsburys , including the hashtag #SainsbosPelfie by midnight on Tuesday 4th March. 

Do you have a favourite pancake recipe that I should try?
