  • Mix the flour, cocoa powder, sugar and orange zest and stir together in a bowl.
  • Then whisk together the milk, vegetable oil, orange extract and egg together in a separate bowl.
  • Next pour the milk mixture slowly into the flour mixture – then stir.
  • Warm a frying pan on a medium heat and add a spoonful of oil. After this, use a ladle to spoon blobs of the pancake mixture into the pan. As they start to bubble, flip them over. Cook on either side for another minute. They are then ready to eat – yum!

  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 chopped banana
  • 4 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 cup of low-fat vanilla yoghurt

Method

  • Roast the sweet potatoes for 40 minutes then puree the sweet potato with a blender or food processor, the smoother the batter, the smoother the pancakes.
