I had been dying to make these the whole of february, now the no sugar thing is over I can finally indulge in the joy that is chocolate, but let's just say these were more of an indulgence for my mum because these were wolfed down in less than 24 hours. I've been told these are better than the real thing so be prepared to have your socks blown off.

Pancake day may be over but tis the season!
I made this the first day of my sugarless month because I was dying for something chocolatey and they definitely hit the spot. I'll give you fair warning that these are quite hard to flip and they don;t always end up looking like your typical pancakes, so don't worry if they bunch up a little bit. If you have a good non stick pan this should be a lot easier, I am in dire need of a new one. They taste just as good however they look.

In the magnificent holiday that is pancake day is finally here, I'm not sure if any other countries have it but pretty much....we eat pancakes. If you don't have pancake day, just eat them anyway, because it's a great excuse.
As a kid pancake day was almost like christmas, it was the only day of the year we got pancakes; apart from on the occasional trip to France. I remember it so clearly, I must have only been about 8, in a picturesque little cafe upstairs with white lace table cloths a plate of pancakes being brought to me and my eyes growing the size of golfballs. Obviously now I'm older I can make them myself and sometimes when I'm feeling a little ill and craving lemon I'll cook up a batch.
When I was around 14, on Saturdays the town over had a market with one of those stalls that made giant pancakes OH MAN, they fold it up in the giant triangle and slip in a cone and all the nutella melts and it's just...if you've never had one and you come across one just do it, don't even think just do it.
The person who came up with the wondrous invention of pancake cakes needs an award and I will definitely be making different flavours in the future, however I am 100% a purist when it comes to pancakes so tomorrow I will be consuming copious amounts of pancakes with lemon and sugar.
