Chocolate Cherry Pancakes
Chocolate Cherry Pancakes are absolutely delicious. The mix of cherries and chocolate chips in the fluffy pancakes is just incredible.
I am a bit obsessed with pancakes I’m not going to lie. I love them. They are so easy to adapt and change with each making session. At the moment I am loving a stack of American style pancakes for a special brunch or breakfast. In my latest batch I raided the pantry for something to add to them. I found some glacé cherries and a bag of dark chocolate chips. I knew that together they would make an incredible breakfast. Black forest pancakes!
How incredible do these golden brown cherry and chocolate pancakes look!
At first I had thought I had burned them when I flipped them but it was the dark chocolate chips which had melted while cooking. The cherries added a fruitiness to the finished pancakes and the chocolate a tasty rich bit which was delicious together.

The pancakes are super easy to make and great to make with children too. It’s a good whisking up exercise. When the results are pancakes there will be a lot more dedication to getting them made. I know it works on me. I’m driven to do the hand mixing, by the promise of eating the delicious food when it’s done.
Chocolate Cherry Pancakes
- Frying pan or hot plate
- 200 g Self Raising Flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 tablespoon icing sugar
- 25 g caster sugar
- 25 g melted butter
- 1 medium egg
- 100 g glacé cherries
- 50 g chocolate chips
- 250 ml milk
- butter for the pan
- Sieve the flour in to a bowl along with the baking powder and icing sugar. Stir in the caster sugar.
- Melt the butter and allow to cool slightly before adding to the mix. Whisk it in along with the egg.
- Whisk in the milk.
- Chop up the glacé cherries and stir in with the chocolate chips.
- Heat up a frying pan until it’s a medium/high heat.
- Add a little butter to the pan and allow to melt.
- Put a spoonful/small ladle of mix into the pan (I can usually do 4 in a pan to make a stack each round). When the pancakes start to bubble flip them over.
- When they are done stack them on a plate and serve.
I love this recipe for pancakes. It never fails me and it’s one I give to everyone who wants a really simple recipe to use. If you don’t like cherries leave them out. Not a fan of dark chocolate then make it milk chocolate. It’s easy to adapt to your favourite flavours.
These pancakes are great ready to eat as they are. I’ve also served them with maple syrup on top (Definitely one for the sweet tooth fans). Ice cream also worked really well or even a drizzle of single cream works. If you make a few extra they taste really good cold as a snack later with a cup of tea!
