My brother's favourite pancakes

This Saturday was definitely one of the laziest in our house. Nobody even tried to make a proper meal so we came up with best idea ever - breakfast for dinner.

This pancakes are one of those things I could easily prepare blindfolded. I usually make these in enormous quantities cause my younger brother is crazy about them and you know, almost 2 meters tall teenagers eat a lot. And when I say 'a lot' I mean really A LOT. 


Makes 2 servings:


- 130g (1 cup) flour
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1 tsp baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 180ml (3/4 cup) milk
- 1 free-range egg
- 100g dark chocolate, chopped


- 250g strawberries, quartered
- 30g butter
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1 tbsp potato starch mixed in 60ml (1/4 cup) of water

1. Start with the compote. In a small saucepan, combine the strawberries, butter and sugar and heat the mixture until butter is completely melted. Increase the heat and let is simmer for couple minutes. When strawberries are soft, roughly mash them up and add the starchy water, stiring all the time. Cook for couple minutes more and leave to cool slightly.

2. In a large bowl, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add milk and egg and mix until smooth. Stir in the chocolate pieces.

3. Scoop the batter using a large spoon and cook the pancakes until nicely brown. Don't forget to add your fruits ; )
