You Will Need
Weigh and mix together the flours, sugar, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, xanthan gum and salt, making sure any lumps are completely broken down. Set aside.
In a large bowl, beat together the eggs, buttermilk, melted butter and vanilla bean paste until light and airy.
Add and beat in the flour mix until you have a smooth thick batter.
Set aside and leave to stand for 5 to 10 minutes.
Meanwhile place the chocolate and milk into a small glass bowl and gently heat in the microwave (medium setting for 20 second bursts, stirring between each) or place in a small non-stick pan over a low heat, stirring very frequently until fully melted and combined.
Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract.
Heat a griddle or flat bottomed skillet until medium-hot and very lightly grease the base (I carefully wipe the base with a little vegetable oil on a piece of kitchen roll).
Drop a spoonful of batter onto the pan and gently spread into a pancake shape about 10 cm/4 inches in diameter.
When bubbles surface and pop at the top of the pancake, use a spatula to carefully turn it over and cook the other side. Both sides should be golden brown.
Set aside in a pile (place in the oven on low heat to keep warm until ready to eat).
Serve with fresh fruit and drizzled fresh chocolate sauce.
