  • 200g self-raising flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • 300ml whole milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • oil for frying
  • chocolate sauce, to serve


  1. Put the flour, eggs and sugar into a bowl. Pour in the milk and whisk until you have a smooth batter, then divide in half. To one half of the batter, whisk in the vanilla extract, and to the other half, whisk in the cocoa powder. 

  2. Lightly oil a non-stick pan, set over a medium heat. Using two spoons, alternately drop the white and dark batter on top of each other, a little off centre, so that the colours very slightly spread until you have 4 concentric circles. Cook until the underside is bubbly then flip and cook for 30 seconds more. Repeat the process with the rest of the batter. Serve drizzled with chocolate sauce.
