PancakeCake Recipe

 

Having taken inspiration from a recipe I saw on SheerLuxe, I decided to create this absolutely delicious-looking masterpiece. It tastes like a tiny bit of heaven: creamy, fruity Eton Mess between layers of pancake, topped with warm, white chocolate to give it a sweet finish.

I rather cleverly named it the PancakeCake 🙂

It’s really quite simple to make. All you need is an electric whisk, the ingredients, a bit of creativity and only a small amount of balance. Here’s how to create this delectable, 6-floor tower of joy.

PancakeCake

Ingredients
Serves 8

–          6 large, thin pancakes (this number can vary, but the more you have, the taller your cake!)
–          300g strawberries
–          300g raspberries
–          150g blueberries
–          1200ml double cream
–          8 x 7.5cm ready-made meringue nests
–          2 packs white chocolate
–          Decoration option:  hundreds and thousands sprinkles

Method

  1. Put a handful of each fruit to the side, to use as decoration later
  2. Pop half the remaining pack of strawberries into a blender and give them a quick whizz to mush them up. Chop the other half of the pack up with a knife. Mash the raspberries with a fork
  3. Whip the double cream until stiff peaks form. It takes a little bit of perseverance but it will eventually get firmer, promise.
  4. Fold in the strawberry pulp, chopped strawberries, mashed raspberries and your punnet of blueberries.
  5. Crush the meringue nests and fold these into the cream
  6. Now the fun bit, the architecture! Pop a pancake on a cake stand and spoon 1/6th of the mixture onto it. Spread it evenly and make sure you go right to the edge of the pancake. Pop another pancake on top and then 1/6th cream mix again. Repeat until all 6 pancakes are stacked high.
  7. Spoon the remaining cream over the top of the pancake, then sprinkle hundreds and thousands over the top.
  8. For the finishing touch, melt the white chocolate in a microwave in a microwaveable dish. Pour this over the top, ensuring you get some good dribble down the sides. Now you can position the fruit you’d put aside on top.

Ta da!!

Note: for best results, slice it up with a sharp knife to prevent tower-topplage.
