Triple Chocolate Jaffa Pancakes with Honey

I have a whole family of chocoholics... the more the merrier.  So I was quite confident that the pancakes would work, with a lot of chocolates as well.

Sunday lunch, always pancakes, because children really love their treats.  Even though we have ballet lessons to go to, pancakes are still do-able and on the menu.

Triple Chocolate Jaffa Pancakes
80g milk chocolate - chopped into pieces
50g butter
200g self raising flour
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
2 tbsp cocoa powder
zest of 2 oranges
1 tbsp orange juice
2 eggs
300ml milk
4 tbsp sugar

Melt milk chocolate with butter, let it cool a little.
Beat eggs with sugar till pale, and mix in the chocolate mixture.
Add room temperature milk, cocoa powder and orange zest and juice and mix well.
Sift in flour and form a smooth pancake batter.
Fold in the chocolate chips before frying in pan.

I must admit it's a bit tricky to work with the chocolate chips, I had to stir the batter after each pancake to make sure there are chips in each one of them...


  1. These pancakes look yummy! How much flour do you add to the batter? I can't seem to find it on the ingredient list?

  2. Thanks for pointing that out, adjusted...
