  • 150g dark chocolate
  • 100ml milk
  • 3-4 tbsp Frangelico, (optional)

    Heat the milk in a microwave or small pan with the Nutella and whisk until melted. Leave to cool then whisk in the 2 tbsp butter, egg and sugar.

  • STEP 2

    Put the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder in a bowl and mix in the salt. Gradually whisk the wet into the dry ingredients to make a batter. Tip into a jug.

  • STEP 3

    Heat a large frying pan and brush with butter. Pour in batter to make small pancakes approx. 10cm across – cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip over and cook for another minute. Keep warm in a low oven while you make the rest.
