Thinly spun chocolate pancakes, perfect for some Halloween fun and great for the whole family.


  • 100g flour
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa/ cacao powder
  • 1 free range egg
  • 200ml milk
  • Vegetable oil for cooking


  • Mix the flour, cocoa/ cacao powder, milk and egg into bowl
  • Whisk until smooth
  • Pour the pancake mix into a jug, or piping bag if you have one, so you can slowly draw spider webs in a hot pan
  • Heat a small amount of oil in a frying pan and the drizzle the pancake mix into thin spiderwebs
  • Small bubbles will appear in the pancake mix, they now need turning and 1/2 minute to cook through on the other side (these don’t take long to cook as the batter is spread so thinly)
  • Remove using a fish slice from the pan onto baking paper, or kitchen towel, then repeat until all the mix is used up
  • Serve with a little icing sugar (optional) and raspberries
