Finely grate the rind from one of the oranges. Squeeze the juice from the orange. Thinly slice the remaining orange.


Place the orange juice and sugar in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir, without boiling, until the sugar is dissolved. Add the orange slices and bring to the boil. Boil, uncovered, for about 7 minutes or until quite thick and syrupy. Remove the pan from the heat.


To make the pancakes, sift the flour and a pinch of salt into a medium bowl and stir in the extra sugar, orange rind and choc bits. Make a well in the centre.


Combine lemon juice and milk in a jug; whisk well. Whisk in egg until combined, then gradually whisk into the flour mixture until smooth.


Heat a small frying pan over medium-low heat and brush with a little of the butter. Pour ¼ cup of the batter into the pan. Cook until bubbles form on the surface and the pancake is golden underneath. Turn and cook until browned lightly and cooked through. Repeat with the remaining butter and batter.


Meanwhile, make chocolate sauce: Combine the chocolate, butter and water in a small heavy-based saucepan. Stir over low heat until just melted and smooth.


Serve the pancakes and candied orange slices drizzled with some of the syrup and chocolate sauce.

Pancakes suitable to freeze. Not suitable
