  • 1 Large Frypan
  • 1 Small Frypan


  • 200 Grams Self Raising Flour
  • 1 1/2 Tsp. Baking Powder
  • 1 Tbsp. Caster Sugar
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 25 Grams Melted Butter Plus a little extra for cooking
  • 200 Ml Milk See recipe notes for lactose free version

  • 100 Grams JC's Pistachio Kernels Roughly chopped
  • 100 Grams Dark Chocolate Chips
  • Vegetable Oil

Topping to Serve

  • 50 Grams JC's Pistachio Kernels Roughly Chopped
  • Maple Syrup


  • Mix self-raising flour, baking powder, caster sugar and a pinch of salt together in a large bowl.
  • Create a well in the center with the back of your spoon and add 3 eggs, the melted butter and milk.
  • Use a balloon whisk or an electric beater to mix until smooth. Add in the chopped pistachios, dark chocolate, and salt. Mix well and pour into a jug or large measuring cup.
  • Heat a small amount of butter with 1 tsp of oil in a large fry pan on medium heat. When the butter has a nice froth to it, pour in the batter so it forms a circle with a diameter of roughly 8cm wide*. The pancakes will spread during the cooking process so do not place them too close together. Cook for around 1-2 minutes, you will know when it’s ready to flip as lots of small bubbles will form and pop. Flip the pancake over and cook for a further on the other side for an even cook. Repeat until all batter is used.
  • Place a small frying pan over low heat, add the remaining chopped pistachios and lightly toast. Add a small amount of maple syrup and lightly simmer as this caramelize and coat the chopped pistachios.
  • Stack your pancakes on a plate and pour the desired amount of maple syrup and pistachio mix.
