Chocolate Pancakes with Mixed Berries and Ice Cream

Happy Pancake Day! One of my favourite days of the year. Pancakes are something I only ever have on special occassions so they’re a welcome treat. When I saw this recipe from Tesco for chocolate pancakes, I just had to give them a go. I thought they were a nice twist on the original pancake (although I’ll be having them too for dessert tonight!). I altered the recipe slightly and changed the topping to create these beauties:Chocolate PancakesNow after all that indulgence, I guess I should be thinking about giving something up for Lent. What has everyone else decided to give up? Drop me a comment and let me know!

Ingredients

100g plain flour

Heat the pan with a little oil and pour the batter in to the pan. (About 3 tbsp per pancake). Cook for a few minutes until the pancake comes loose easily. Then flip and repeat on the other side.
