Indulge in the Sweetness of Caramelised Banana and Chocolate-Filled Pancakes

Hello! If you love chocolate, banana, and pancakes like I do, then you should try making this American-style pancake recipe. It’s my all-time favourite recipe, and I especially love the surprise chocolate filling, maple syrup, and walnut/hazelnut topping. It’s simply delicious!

Ingredients for the pancakes:

  • 200g self-raising flour
  • 1tbsp golden caster sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3 large eggs
  • 25g butter [melted, and a little extra for cooking]
  • 200ml milk
  • Oil or sunflower oil

Ingredients for the topping:

  • 200g chocolate hazelnut spread
  • 2 banana
  • Maple syrup


  1. To make pancakes, start by mixing flour, baking powder, milk, butter, sugar, and eggs in a large bowl or jug. Whisk the ingredients until the batter is thick and smooth.
  2. Next, heat up a non-stick frying pan and add oil or a knob of butter. When the butter starts to foam, carefully pour in just enough batter to cover the bottom of the pan.
  3. To make a pancake, cook it for 3-4 minutes on each side, adjusting the temperature as needed, until it has a golden brown color. Once the pancake is fully cooked, you can add a drizzle of lemon juice and sprinkle sugar on top before serving.
  4. If your wanting chocolate filling, then scoop in 1tsp of chocolate spread into the centre of the pancake, then pour a small amount of batter on top of your pancake – just enough to cover the chocolate spread.
  5. Once all the pancakes have been cooked and gold brown, sliced banana’s and drizzle caramel. Finally stack the pancakes and service!
