Grab your frying pan, as these delicious pancakes are too good to not make this year! A delicious black cherry fruit filling gives these chocolate pancakes a seriously fruity edge. Happy flipping!



125g self-raising flour

10g cocoa powder, plus extra for dusting

2 tsp caster sugar

1 egg

150ml milk

Few drops of vegetable oil

150ml double cream

1 x 410g can Princes Black Cherry Fruit Filling



1. Sift the flour and cocoa powder into a large bowl and stir in the caster sugar.

2. Add the egg and milk and then use a hand whisk to beat the mixture together to make a smooth batter.

3. Heat 2-3 drops of vegetable oil in a large non-stick frying pan. Use the batter to make 8 small pancakes, cooking them in batches. To cook, add small ladlefuls of batter to the pan and cook for 1-2 minutes until bubbles appear on the surface. Turn over and cook for 1-2 more minutes until set. Set aside on kitchen paper until all the pancakes are cooked.

4. Whip the cream in a chilled bowl until it holds its shape. Sandwich two pancakes together per person with half the whipped cream and Princes Black Cherry Fruit Filling. Top with the rest of the cream and cherries. Serve, sprinkled with a little cocoa powder.
