Salted caramel & chocolate topped buttermilk pancakes.

Flavour of the week: Salted caramel, let’s pretend it is one flavour because it really is divine.

Blogger/Book of the week: I cannot get enough of In Jennie’s Kitchen this week and very naughtily purchased her cook book ‘Homemade with Love‘ online this week. Eagerly awaiting its arrival.

This week has been one of those weeks and it all came to a head yesterday when after gradually feeling worse every day this week I got home from work in dire need of medicinal pancakes, dessert for dinner. And they needed to be covered in chocolate. Luckily I had some buttermilk in the fridge so I used that in this recipe to make the pancakes. I always have a plate in the oven (with it on low) to stack the pancakes up whilst I cook them because I can’t stand luke warm or cold pancakes. As much as I would love to coat each one in pure melted chocolate I couldn’t quite bring myself to eat 200g of chocolate and 4 big thick pancakes all by myself. Instead I made a chocolate sauce using my favourite chocolate bar ‘Lindt – Caramel with a touch of salt’ and a dollop of creme fraiche.

Chocolate topping recipe:

(To top about 4 pancakes that are about 6 inches across)

  • Approx 50g of your favourite chocolate (I used 4 squares of Lindt – Caramel with a touch of salt)
  • Heaped tablespoon of creme fraiche (I used low fat creme fraiche, I am sure it made all the difference in the calorie department. Ha!)
  1. Melt the chocolate in a small bowl in the microwave (or any way you like).
  2. Stir in the the creme fraiche.
  3. Top each pancake with a heaped teaspoon, spread and add the next pancake.
  4. STACK ‘EM UP.
  5. Sprinkle with chopped hazelnuts (optional).
