Devilishly good double chocolate chip pancakes
Traditionally seen as the final day of feasting before the start of lent, we've always taken Shrove Tuesday as an opportunity to enjoy our favourite things guilt-free. If you’ve decided to give up chocolate this year, these double chocolate chip pancakes are the perfect way to indulge.
Recipe by Good to Know
- 3 eggs, separated
- 100g plain flour
- 30g cocoa powder
- 1tsp baking powder
- 150ml milk
- butter, for cooking
- 50g chocolate chips
- Ice cream and chocolate sauce, to serve
Whisk the egg whites with an electric whisk until they form stiff peaks.
In a separate bowl whisk together the milk, eggs, baking powder, cocoa and flour until you have a thick batter.
Add one third of the egg whites to the batter mixture and combine fully. Then carefully add the rest of the egg whites, folding in gently.
Heat a non-stick frying pan on a medium high heat. Melt a knob of butter in the pan, then add spoonfuls of your batter to the pan and sprinkle the upturned side with chocolate chips. Once cooked on the underside, flip and continue to cook for a minute more until the pancakes are done on both sides and puffed up.
Serve with a drizzle of chocolate sauce and a scoop of ice cream.
