Teòclaid Foileagan

So I tried translating "chocolate pancakes" into Scots Gaelic... and probably failed... At least I got your attention!

But don't worry! Even if teòclaid foileagan is the correct name for it, it is a helluva lot easier to make them than to pronounce it, I just thought I'd peak your interest!

Teòclaid Foileagan
(Makes a small stack for 1, or 1 large pancake)

1/2 cup flour (I used chickpea flour)
1 egg
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tbsp syrup of choice (I used agave).... or two if you want!
1/3 tsp baking powder
Butter or oil for frying
PS. if you feel sneaky, you can also add 2 tbsp of Kahlua or Tia Maria to it! I saw it mentioned somewhere, sadly I didn't have any at hand...

- Simply mix all the ingredients together for the batter and add a splash of milk if it is too thick for your liking. Leave to sit for about five minutes.

- Heat oil or butter in pan on medium heat, and fry either small pancakes or a big one! If making a big one, I would suggest covering the pan with a lid so that the pancake cooks through quicker without burning or sticking - also, I might be quite impatient... Not sure if I have mentioned that before *starts whistling*

The other day, I went over to some friends' to watch the new episode of Game of Thrones, and this season, we have decided to try and make a flavour of popcorn every week representing one of the kingdoms in the series... Geeks? Us? What are you talking about?!

This is.... the Martel popcorn! Popcorn, chilli oil and ground nut oil, honey, nutmeg, cinnamon, ground coriander leaves and ginger! Exotic, sweet with an underlying kick to it!

Sorry for having been so quiet on here this week, the days have taken it out on me... Will try and recuperate and get back to normal as soon as! I hope you have a fantasmic weekend ahead x

Recipe by yours truly,

  1. You certainly piqued my interest :) These look very tasty, love that you used chickpea flour--that's one I've been meaning to check out :D

    1. Awh, why thank you! Chickpea flour is genius, have made savoury ones a couple of times this week as well :) So good! A wee bit of cocoa powder in sweet batter though, and you're ready to flip! x

  2. I am also not posting as often. But I am glad you posted this! This looks AMAZING!!
    Also, I love the popcorn idea. Not geeky, super creative :)

    1. It has been a hectic year so far! Plus, a few posts here and there certainly is better than none at all, right? :D
      And as for the popcorn - so good! I feel like we're gonna have to get super creative with some of the versions though :P Food colouring might be necessary amongst other things :P

  3. Yum, så godt det ser ut! Sjokoladepannekaker med aprikoser (som jeg gleder meg såååå til kommer i sesong!)- nydelig!!
    God helg :*

    1. Tusen takk skjønne :D Litt kakao i pannekakerøren er ikke dumt vettu ;)
      Aprikoser er nydelige! Skjønner ikke at jeg ikke likte dem som barn! God helg til deg også :) x
