Black Peppercorn Pancake Recipe | Food

Pancake day is just around the corner guys and come up with my own twist on an adventurous pancake recipe. So today I'm sharing with you a Black Peppercorn with Black Cherry sauce Pancakes! 

Before we even get started we have to get the basics right like having all the utensils to make the perfect pancakes, I'm using the 24cm Green Pan* but you can check out Debenham's cookware here which is a really sturdy based pan and typically speaking I tend to judge the quality of a pan by the weight and the thickness of the base. You will also need a whisk, a sieve and a ladle 

Moving onto the goodies I used a recipe for Fluffy American pancakes which can be found on BBC and the cherry recipe I found on this site but I think you can use anything fruit a sweet for this recipe so just put whatever you want on. 


  • 135g plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • 130ml milk
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 tbsp melted butter (allowed to cool slightly otherwise it'll scramble your egg) plus extra for cooking
  • Toni's ingredient - 2 tbsp Black Pepper 


Sift the flour, baking powder, salt, pepper and caster sugar into a mixing bowl. Then in a measuring jug whisk together the milk and egg, then whisk in the melted butter.Then simply pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture and mix until you have a smooth batter. Add a little butter to the frying pan and get it on a medium heat, get a ladle of the mixture and add a little pool of the mixture to the centre until you start seeing bubble appear on the surface and that's when you can flip it over - it should be about 1cm thick.

Put the pancakes on a plate, pour the sauce over the top and enjoy!!! The reason why I added the peppercorn is because I like the hot with the sweet, that fiery pepper and the sweetness of the cherries works really well. In fact you can add any kind of sweet topping such a blueberrys, strawberries, it's a playful mix of sweet and hot! Plus it's a little more adventurous than the standard pancakes with syrup! 

How do you like your pancakes?

  1. This is really unusual with the peppercorn - I've got to try it! I like salt with sweet so maybe spice with sweet would work just as well
