Vanilla Fudge Pancakes

This soft, sweet and meltingly delicious fudge pancake recipe will go down a storm with kids and grownups alike.


180g plain flour
180ml milk
1 tbs white sugar
8g baking powder
a pinch of salt
2 large eggs
1 tbs unsalted butter
Vanilla Extract
A tin of meltingly delicious Gardiners Vanilla Fudge.

The Method

Step 1.  Mix the sugar, flour, baking powder and salt into a large bowl.

Step 2.  Melt the butter.

Step 3.  In a separate bowl, whisk the two eggs, the melted butter and milk.

Step 4.  Create a small crater in the bowl of mixed flour and pour in the bowl of mixed milk/butter/eggs.

Step 5.  Mix the contents until they become a smooth mixture with no lumps.

Step 6.  Add a non-stick frying pan to a medium heat.  When suitably hot, take a large spoon of pancake mix and add a ‘blob’.  You are aiming for an end result pancake of 1cm.  Turn over to cook on both sides.

Step 7.  Set the cooked pancakes to the side and allow to cool on a wire rack.

Step 8.  Take the meltingly delicious fudge, add to a heatproof bowl and place over a pot of low simmering water.  Slowly stir until the fudge melts into a smooth delicious sauce.  Try to melt the fudge slowly for a smooth consistency.  If you need to, you can add a little water, natural yoghurt or even honey to help create a fluid consistent sauce.

Step 9.  Pour over the fudge sauce.

Step 10.  Yum yum yummmmmmm…..
