Chocolate Scotch Pancakes

I needed a little pick me up the other afternoon and didn't have the ingredients to make a cake, so I settled on dropped scones or Scotch Pancakes. They are basically little pancakes made with a thick and fluffy batter, great with afternoon tea! 


just enough to make about 4-5 small ones to share for portion control!

  • 1-2 cups of self raising flour
  • one egg
  • about a cup of milk
  • 2 tablespoon of sugar 
  • 2 tablespoon of cocoa
  1. mix all the ingredients together to get a nice thick batter 
  2. heat a little canola oil then pour batter into pan cook for 1-2 minutes on each side
  3. I served them with maple syrup and strawberries - yummy

If you wanted to make something sweet in a flash, what would you make?

Have a wonderful weekend everyone

  7. Pancakes are one of my fave comfort foods, and these look delish, especially topped by fresh strawberries.

  8. Ha when you wrote you needed a pick-me-up I thought for a second that these actually had scotch in them. Which would have been weird, but amusing. They look awesome!

  10. Wow, I have never heard of scotch pancakes, but these looks awesome. If I wanted something sweet and fast, I would probably just add PB to a choc rice cake like I usually do mid afternoon. I would also do some brownies or something.

  11. Wow Rebecca! These pancakes look chocolately and delicious. I can see how they make a wonderful snack.

    Lately I've been snacking on peanut butter.

    Have a great weekend.

  31. I love this recipe! I am going to make it this weekend. I just found your blog and have signed up to follow it. I can't wait to see what other delicious recipes you will be posting!

  32. Pancakes are such a brilliant quick sweet treat. Have you ever made them with treacle (molasses)? They are delicious. But my quickest sweet treat is toast and homemade jam.

  33. This is a keeper. Simple and delicious. Can't beat that!

  34. Linda thanks on my way other to your blog
    Janice I have eaten with treacle but not added to batter oh yum
    magic of spice thanks
    mother rimmy thanks

  35. I have strong opinions on tea. I had a sort of tea time when my children were younger. I fed them dinner when they walked in the door from school. They were famished and ate like wolves. Then, they had dessert with us when we ate later. It was a great system!

  36. You would have thought that as a self confessed chocoholic I would have thought of this, how dumb do I feel! These are perfect for a chocolatey pickme up, love it.
