  • 70g 70% cocoa content dark chocolate


1: In a large bowl sift in the flour, bicarbonate of soda, and sugar, meanwhile whisk together the eggs and buttermilk, add this to the dry ingredients and whisk together before mixing through the melted butter. Heat a large non stick pan over a medium heat then add in a small knob of butter, place four small ladles of the batter into the pan then leave to cook for around 2 minutes, flip then cook for a further couple of minutes. Repeat until you have used up the batter. Keep the other pancakes in the oven to keep warm.

3: Stack up the pancakes on a serving plate, scatter over some of the cherries then drizzle over some of the melted chocolate.
