Chocolate pancake sandwich

    15 min

    These are delicious! You just make the pancakes, layer with chocolate pieces and then sandwich them together. The chocolate melts and creates a delicious sauce. You can use a biscuit cutter to create shapes suitable for any occasion - I made them for Valentine's day with a heart biscuit cutter.

    Makes: 4 pancake sandwiches

    • 2 tablespoons butter
    • 1 egg, separated
    • 200ml buttermilk, in a seperate bowl or cup
    • 225g plain flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1 tablespoon caster sugar
    • Extra butter, or sunflower oil for frying
    • 100g chocolate pieces or a chocolate bar, chopped

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:15min 

    1. In a seperate bowl, gently melt the butter for 10 seconds in the microwave and leave to cool. Separate the egg - add the yolk to the cooled butter; whisk with a fork. Add the egg white to the buttermilk and whisk with a fork.
    2. Sift the flour and baking powder into a large bowl. Add the sugar and then whisk in all the wet ingredients - it should be quite thick but you can add more buttermilk, if necessary.
    3. Heat a non-stick pan over high heat. It should be hot enough to melt a knob of butter very quickly. Then lower the heat and use a ladle to pour some of the batter into the pan.
    4. After you begin to see the bubbles apear, use a fish slice to flip it over and brown the other side. (Don't despair if the first one doesn't work - they never do alot of the time!) Transfer to a warm plate and then continue to cook the next pancake - you shouldn't need to add any more butter to the pan.
    5. Use a cutter to create shapes, if you like. Otherwise, place chocolate pieces on top of one warm pancake. Sandwich with another pancake. Repeat with remaining pancakes. Sprinkle with icing sugar and serve.

    Gorgeous pancakes and a perfect lastminute dessert! I sandwiched with nutella, otherwise followed the recipe to the letter. Thanks for a lovely recipe that my hubby devoured in minutes  -  13 Feb 2012
