Chocolate pancakes with orange and maple sauce
( MAKES 10 )
|3 Tbsp||Cocoa powder|
|2 tsp||Baking powder|
|3 Tbsp||Butter, melted|
|100 g||Dark chocolate, chopped into chunks|
Orange and maple sauce
- Mix all pancake ingredients in a large bowl and stir well until combined.
- Heat a large frypan to medium heat and add a teaspoon of butter. Add a ladle of the pancake batter and tilt the pan so the mix spreads evenly. Flip the pancake once you notice bubbles around the outer edges. Flip and cook on the other side for about a minute. Remove the cooked pancake to a plate and repeat until all the batter has been used. Wipe any excess butter from the pan with a paper towel to avoid the butter burning after each pancake.
- Peel the oranges, trying to get as much of the pith off as possible. Cut each segment of orange from the white part that attaches the segments together. Place the orange segments into the maple syrup then squeeze any juice left from the remaining part of the orange the sections were removed from. Pour the syrup and oranges over the pancakes and add walnuts and a dollop of creme fraiche or natural yoghurt.
