Recipe Breton Pancakes Topped with Chocolate and Hazelnut Sauce

Sublime, delightfully crisp Breton pancakes topped with a chocolate and hazelnut sauce. You can serve them for breakfast or as a dessert.


TIP

* The success of a good pancake lies in its cooking (for my part, I like to use a cast iron crepe pan). Heat your pan over medium heat, brushing with oil. From then on, keep your skillet over medium-low heat and always brush with oil between pancakes. To find out if the temperature is hot enough to cook your pancakes, pour a little batter. If it sizzles, your pan is ready!

VARIATION

* You can refrigerate the hazelnut chocolate sauce and use it as a spread for toast, a bit like 'nutella'!
