· 150 ml milk

· 3 tablespoons Nutella

· 2 tablespoons melted butter, plus more for frying

· 1 egg, beaten

· 2 teaspoons caster sugar

· 100 g plain flour

· 2 tablespoons cocoa powder

· ½ tablespoon baking powder

· ½ teaspoon salt

· For Chocolate Sauce

· 150 g dark chocolate

· 100 ml milk

· 3-4 tablespoons Frangelico (optional)

Heat the milk in a microwave or a small pan with the Nutella and whisk until melted. Leave it to cool then whisk in two tablespoons butter, egg and sugar. Put the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder in a bowl and mix in the salt. Gradually whisk the wet ingredients into the dry ones to make a smooth batter. Tip into a jug. Heat a large frying pan and brush with the butter. Pour in the batter to make small pancakes and cook them until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip over and cook for another minute. Keep warm in a low oven while you make the rest. To make the sauce, gently heat the ingredients in a small pan, whisking until shiny (add a splash of water if it's too thick). Pour over the stacked pancakes to serve.
