For the pancake batter

  • 125 g Self raising flour
  • 45 g Caster sugar
  • 35 g Cocoa powder
  • 250 ml Milk cow's or plant milk will both work
  • 1 tbsp Vegetable oil
  • 1 Egg large
  • 1/2 tsp Orange extract
  • 1 Orange zest only

For the toppings

  • 1/2 a Terry's Chocolate Orange melted
  • 150 ml Double cream
  • 1/2 tbsp Icing sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 200 g Tinned mandarin orange segments


  1. Whip up the cream with the icing sugar and vanilla and put it in the fridge so it is ready to use

  2. To make the pancake batter stir together the flour, cocoa powder, orange zest and sugar in a mixing bowl

  3. In a jug whisk together the milk, vegetable oil, orange extract and egg

  4. Pour the milk mixture bit by bit into the flour mixture, whisk in between each addition until a smooth batter is created

  5. Warm up your frying pan on a medium heat and added a little bit of oil or butter, used a ladle to spoon blobs of the pancake mixture into the pan. Once bubbles start to appear on the surface, flip them over. This will take a couple of minutes

  6. Then let them cook for another minute or so on the other side, then they are ready to eat!

  7. Serve warm with the whipped cream, a drizzle of the melted chocolate and some orange segments
