Chocolate Sauce
• Place brown sugar and golden syrup in a medium saucepan and bring to the boil over low heat, stirring constantly so that sugar does not scorch.
• Remove from heat and add chocolate and essence. Stir chocolate to melt.
• When mixture is smooth, stir in cream and leave to cool.
• If mixture needs to be runny, heat slightly until just warm.
Filling
• In a medium-sized bowl, smooth cottage cheese and add strawberries.
• Mix together. Keep aside until required.
Pancakes
• Sift flour, cocoa and sugar into a bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, essence and butter until frothy.
• Make a well in the centre of flour and gradually pour milk mixture into well, adding the dry ingredients from the side of the bowl to form a smooth batter.
• Beat well with a hand mixture. Allow to stand for at least 30minutes.
• Heat a non-stick crepe pan, coat with cooking spray and brush with a little melted butter. Pour about 45ml batter into pan and swirl to cover the base.
• Cover with lid and cook for 1 – 2 minutes until base is golden.
• Then turn over and cook other side for 30 seconds.
• Turn pancake onto a plate. Repeat until all batter is used, stacking pancakes on plate with greaseproof paper in-between each one.
