Berry, Damson & Chocolate Pancakes



  • 2 cups Self Raising Flour
  • 4 Tbsp cocoa powder (Milo, drinking chocolate works too!)
  • 3 Tbsp Sugar (brown or white)
  • 2 cups Milk
  • 2 eggs (beaten)
  • 50g Melted Butter
  • 2 cups berries


  • 3 Tbsp The Damson Collection Plum Jam
  • 2 Tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 1 cup Water
  • 1 cup Crushed Walnuts (optional)


  1. Sift Flour, Sugar and Cocoa Powder into a bowl.
  2. Make a well in the centre. Add milk, eggs and melted butter. Whisk until smooth but still “tough” consistency.
  3. Add in berries and mix further.
  4. Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium-low heat and add a small dash of oil.
  5. The size of the pancake is totally up to you! Cook each side of the pancake for about 1-2 minutes until bubbles form on the surface. The pancake should rise a little bit and form a fluffy texture!
  6. Flip and repeat on the other side. 


  1. Now onto the sauce! Heat a separate small saucepan and add the Damson Plum Jam, Brown Sugar and Water. Stir gently until it melts and ‘caramelises’ into a sticky texture. Make sure you continue stirring so the bottom layer doesn’t burn!
  2. If you prefer more sour or sweet just adjust jam/sugar levels to your liking. I also added a few crushed Walnuts for added crunch. 
  3. Voila! Garnish the pancakes with our tangy sauce; or add berries, syrup, cream, ice cream, yoghurt...the list could go on forever!
