  1. Step 1

    Whisk the milk and egg in a large jug.
  2. Step 2

    Combine the flour, sugar and bicarbonate of soda in a large bowl. Make a well in the centre. Add the milk mixture to the flour mixture and use a whisk to stir until a smooth batter forms. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside for 30 mins to rest.
  3. Step 3

    Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium-low heat. Brush with a little melted butter. Pour ¼ cup (60ml) of batter into the pan. Sprinkle with some of the choc chips. Cook for 2 mins or until bubbles appear on the surface of the pancake. Turn and cook for a further 1 min or until light golden and cooked through. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm. Repeat to make 4 more pancakes.
  4. Step 4

    Add 1 tbs cocoa powder and 1 tbs extra milk to remaining batter and whisk to combine. Brush the pan with melted butter. Cook 5 more pancakes using half the remaining batter and choc chips.
  5. Step 5

    Whisk the remaining cocoa powder and extra milk into remaining batter. Cook 5 more pancakes with the remaining batter and choc chips.
  6. Step 6

    To make the Nutella sauce, combine the chocolate, cream and Nutella in a small saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring, until the chocolate melts and the sauce is smooth.
  7. Step 7

    Divide the pancakes among serving plates. Top with cream and banana. Drizzle with Nutella sauce and sprinkle with hazelnut.
