Pancake Day: How To Make Perfect Chocolate Pancakes

Perfect Hot Chocolate for sharing


Our top chef David Demaison has created the ultimate Cocoa Crepe recipe. They’re so flipping delicious we had to share the love.



  1. Crack the eggs into a large bowl then add the caster sugar and a small pinch of salt.

  2. Whisk well, then incorporate the sieved cocoa powder and plain flour. Again whisk well until you get a blended mixture. Then add the milk very very slowly while stirring.

  3. Lastly, add the olive oil, and leave the pancake batter to set in the fridge for around 30 minutes.

  4. Cook your crepes in a non-stick pan.

  5. While still warm, spread over a generous amount of Hotel Chocolat’s Salted Caramel & Pecan Chocolate Spreads, and eat your Cocoa Crepes with joy in your heart.
