Ingredients

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
  • ½ tsp Orange extract
  • 1 Orange zest only

For the toppings

  • ½ a Terry's Chocolate Orange melted
  • 150 ml Double cream
  • ½ tbsp Icing sugar
  • ½ tsp Vanilla extract
  • 200 g Tinned mandarin orange segments

Instructions

  • Whip up the cream with the icing sugar and vanilla and put it in the fridge so it is ready to use
  • To make the pancake batter stir together the flour, cocoa powder, orange zest and sugar in a mixing bowl
  • In a jug whisk together the milk, vegetable oil, orange extract and egg
  • Pour the milk mixture bit by bit into the flour mixture, whisk in between each addition until a smooth batter is created
  • 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
  • Then let them cook for another minute or so on the other side, then they are ready to eat!
  • Serve warm with the whipped cream, a drizzle of the melted chocolate and some orange segments
  • If you want to save for later, allow to cool fully, and store in the fridge in an airtight container. Warm on a microwave safe plate for 30-60 seconds (depending on the wattage of your microwave). Eat within 2 days
