1

First make the chocolate crème

Combine the milk and half the sugar and bring to the boil in a pan, and in a separate bowl combine the egg yolks, corn flour, vanilla and remaining sugar.

2

Take

the pan off the heat and add the egg yolk mixture into the hot milk. Whisk to combine and return to the heat, stirring constantly, until it forms a thick custard. At this point, take off the heat and add the chopped Lindt Excellence chocolate and butter and mix until silky and smooth.

3

Cover the surface

of the crème directly with cling film, and allow to cool fully. To finish, lightly stir the crème to ensure it is smooth.

4

For the pancakes

sieve dry ingredients in a mixing bowl then stir in the crème fraîche and the egg.

5

Combine

the milk and melted Lindt Excellence 70%, creating a smooth ganache, then add to the rest of the mixture and whisk until smooth.

6

To cook

place a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Brush the pan with a little butter and place batter into pan (about a tablespoon for a small pancake).

7

Cook

each pancake for 3-4 minutes or until bubbles appear on the surface, before flipping to cook through, about a further 1 minute.

8

Transfer

to a plate to cool slightly, then generously fill pancakes with the chocolate crème, stack and serve with a little chocolate sauce, if liked. Also delicious with ice cream, or some sliced strawberries or bananas.
