75g plain flour

25g cocoa powder

2 large eggs, beaten

200g caster sugar

Pinch of sea salt

60ml water

60g butter, room temperature and cubed

60ml double cream, warmed slightly

Early Harvest Arbequina Extra Virgin Olive Oil, to grease pan

300ml whole milk

2 bananas, sliced

100ml Tahini


  1. Sieve the flour and cocoa into a large bowl, then make a well in the middle and add the beaten eggs and then the milk, slowly whisking to combine all the ingredients. Cover and leave the batter to rest for 30 minutes.
  2. Add sugar, salt and water to a medium sized pan over a medium heat, leave until the sugar is dissolved and starting to bubble slightly.
  3. Increase heat to medium-high and cook until it reaches 175C/155C/Gas Mark 3 on your sugar thermometer (or if you do not have one until it is golden brown). Remove from the heat once it reaches this point.
  4. Once removed from the heat, add in the butter and cream, mixing well with a wooden spoon – be careful as this is very hot and will bubble up. Leave to cool slightly while you cook your pancakes.
  5. Heat a large frying pan over a medium to high heat and when hot, add a small amount of oil to the pan. Then pour in enough of the batter to coat the bottom of the pan. Cook on one side until you see small bubbles appearing, then flip and cook on the other side for one minute. Remove the pancake from the pan and repeat with the remaining batter until used up.
  6. Serve the pancakes with the salted caramel sauce and banana inside. Drizzle the Tahini over the top – these are best served hot.
