Pancakes with banana and chocolate sauce

Pudding & Cake Serves 4 20 min
An quick, easy and delicious end to a meal: tender, thin pancakes wrapped around sweet bananas and a creamy chocolate sauce. To give a sheen to your chocolate sauce, add a small knob of butter to the melted chocolate and cream. Make this with our basic pancake batter.

Ingredients

  • 200g dark chocolate
  • 250ml double cream
  • 50ml milk
  • 25g unsalted butter
  • 4 warm pancakes (see our basic pancake mixture recipe also on our website)
  • 4 bananas

Method

Prep time: 5 min
Cooking time: 15 min
  • Step 1

    To make the chocolate sauce, put the chocolate, 150ml of the cream, milk and butter in a heatproof bowl, one that fits snugly over a pan of barely simmering water. Melt together, being careful not to overheat then remove from the hob and gently stir to combine.
  • Step 2

    While the chocolate is melting, lightly whisk the rest of the cream to soft peaks.
  • Step 3

    Divide the warm pancakes between 4 serving plates.
  • Step 4

    Slice the bananas and lay them on one half of the pancake. Fold the pancake over and drizzle with the warm chocolate sauce. Serve with a dollop of the whipped cream.
  • Step 5

    If you have any chocolate sauce left over, you can keep it. It will harden as it cools, but you can soften it up by warming it gently, adding a splash of hot water to thin it if needed.
