Pancake Day: Sweet Or Savory? You Decide

Pancakes here… Pancakes there… Pancakes for everyone!

Chocolate and Blood Orange Pancakes

 

Blood Orange and Chocolate

If you’ve got a sweet tooth and simply cannot resist a generous drizzle of chocolate sauce with your pancakes then this sugary, yet zesty, treat is for you…

Ingredients:
125g Flour
2 Eggs
220ml Milk
75g Cooking Chocolate
1 Blood Orange
(serves 4)

Step 1. Making the pancake batter – Measure out all of your ingredients using a set of kitchen scales. Crack two eggs into your mixing bowl, add the flour and milk. Whisk until the mixture is smooth.

Step 2. Melting the chocolate – Break up the chocolate into small squares and place inside a heatproof glass bowl. To melt the chocolate you will need to place the bowl full of chocolate into a standard washing up bowl that contains few inches of boiling hot water. Keep stiring the chocolate with a fork until it is silky smooth. (Do not microwave your chocolate, as this could end up in a smokey mess!)

Step 3. Adding the zest – Simply cut the blood orange into two halves. Grate the peel from one half of the blood orange into the melted chocolate and stir until completely mixed.

Step 4. Making the pancake – Using a ladle, pour the pancake mix into the centre of your Pancake Pan. Tilt the pan slightly so that the mixture spreads around the edge of the pan. Flip the pancake over occasionally to make sure that both sides are cooked evenly.

Step 5. Final touches – Drizzle the chocolate over your pancakes, along with a small trickle of juice from the remainder of your blood orange.
