The combination of sweet juicy oranges and chocolate fudge sauce they claim makes for the perfect plate of pancakes.


Serves 6 – 8 (depending on the size of the pancakes)



For the filling

3 oranges, peeled and chopped

2 oranges, juice only

100g Siúcra Caster Sugar

Pinch of ground cinnamon

Garden herbs such as fennel fronds and edible flowers, optional


For the Chocolate fudge sauce

250ml double cream

4 tbsp. Siúcra Dark Brown Sugar

100g dark chocolate, melted

40g butter


For the pancakes

300g plain flour

Pinch ground cinnamon

60g Siúcra Caster Sugar

2 eggs

420ml milk

3 to 4 tbsp water, if your batter is too thick

4 tbsp toasted hazelnuts

300ml whipped cream

Orange zest, to decorate



To prepare the filling

  1. Place the orange juice and 3 tbsp water into a medium saucepan with Siúcra Caster Sugar and a pinch of ground cinnamon.

  2. Bring to the boil, stirring most of the time, then lower the heat and simmer slowly until a light syrup forms.

  3. Add the orange segments to the syrup.


To make the sauce

  1. Place the cream, Siúcra Caster Sugar and chocolate into saucepan and heat over a low heat until the chocolate and sugar melts and the sauce thickens.

  2. Add the butter and stir very well. Set aside. 

  3. Chop 3 tbsp of the hazelnuts while keeping the 1 tbsp whole for the top of the stack.


To prepare the pancakes

  1. Combine the plain flour, ground cinnamon and Siúcra Caster Sugar in a bowl. Beat together the eggs and milk and slowly whisk into the flour mix. Leave to stand for 10 minutes and pour into a jug.

  2. When ready to cook, heat the frying pan and add a little butter and oil. 

  3. Swirl enough batter into the pan to make a pancake that will fit the size of your cake stand or serving platter.

  4. Cook for about 1½ minutes and then turn onto the other side, cooking for about ½ minute until golden and cooked. Place on a clean plate continuing to make all the batter.

  5. Place sheets of parchment paper in between the pancakes to prevent them from sticking


To assemble

  1. Place a cool pancake on a cake stand, spread over some cream, drizzle over the chocolate fudge sauce and chopped orange.

  2. Continue to layer up and finally end with chocolate fudge sauce with a sprinkling over of hazelnuts and some orange zest.

  3. Serve immediately and enjoy!
