Cacao & Hazelnut Pancakes with Glossy Hot Choccy Sauce by Cindy

Easter is here! Here an easy, chocolatey and healthy treat for Easter Sunday! Presenting: My Cacao & Hazelnut Pancakes with Glossy Hot Choccy Sauce!

Pancake Ingredients:

1 cup Wholemeal Flour ¼ cup Cacao Powder ¼ Hazelnut Meal (lightly toasted) 1 Tablespoon Chia Seeds 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder 1 Tablespoon Rapadura (unrefined) Sugar 1 Egg 1 ¼ Cups Milk

Method: Pancake Mix:

  1. Combine all Dry Ingredients in a bowl and whisk through to mix thoroughly.
  2. Add Egg & Milk, and whisk gently until all ingredients are combined to make a smooth batter.
  3. Heat fry pan (cast iron is ideal) on stove to a medium heat.
  4. Add a dollop of butter and swirl around - being careful not to burn it.
  5. Ladle mixture (2 x 57ml/2oz) into pan in perfect size circle (15cm diameter is usually easy to flip so I’d recommend this)
  6. Wait till small bubbles start to form on the top, as they begin to break, you know the pancake is now ready to flip.
  7. Cook on flipped side for ½ the time or until pancake has slightly risen.
  8. Repeat until mixture is complete. Keep warm in oven stacked and covered with foil or serve on the go.
  9. Serve with Glossy Hot Choccy Sauce, a dollop of plain yoghurt and fruit of your choice. Berries are perfect!
