EVOO Pancakes with Dark Chocolate and Salt Flakes

Serves 4-6 Prep Time 35 minutes   Rated:

If the French are not afraid of their chocolate croissants for breakfast, I say Viva La France and let us all embrace chocolate for breakfast. I cannot start my day without drinking Crio Bru so to eat chocolate in one form or another is just a step up from that...and after all, chocolate is a superfood...full of amazing health giving properties...are you with me? Are you feeling the chocolate lurve?

Place all pancake ingredients except chocolate into Thermomix bowl and blend 30 sec/ speed 10. Allow batter to rest 30 minutes if possible.


Heat a little oil in a flat based frypan. Make sure the pan is hot but not smoking. (Induction 6)


Dollop some batter into centre of pan and spread with a spoon. Top with a few pieces of chocolate. Spread a little more batter just over the top of the chocolate.


Cook until bubbling through centre and browning on edges. Flip and just seal off top. Repeat until all batter is used.


Serve immediately drizzled with EVOO and syrup with the grated zest and salt over.


As you are drizzling the EVOO onto the pancakes as a topping, do not use any old olive oil. You must use a top quality product otherwise you will be sending me hate mail...It is worth purchasing a great EVOO for just such a thing. Reserve it for instances where the oil is used as a dressing or topping as in this recipe.
