Pancake cake

It was the Chandeleur not that long ago but I wanted to make something a bit different than just plain individual pancakes. I had seen a recipe for pancake cake on my friend Carine’s blog Chic Chic Choc…olat, which gave me all the inspiration I needed to make a truly beautiful dessert!

Pancake batter


100g Hazelnut paste
100g dark chocolate

Ganache topping:

10g unsalted butter
50g milk
15g cocoa powder
150g icing sugar


  1. Make the pancake batter as per the recipe to which you can add 1 tbsp rhum, 1 tsp vanilla extract and 1 tbsp sugar.
  2. Leave to rest at least 30 minutes before using.
  3. Make the pancakes (I got about 10) and leave them to cool on a plate.
  4. Make the hazelnut paste and take out 100g. Keep the rest in a jar and use it to make lovely nutella!
  5. Melt 100g dark chocolate in the Thermomix by first chopping it 6 sec/speed 6, then melting 3 min/50C/speed 2.
  6. Add the 100g hazelnut paste and mix 20 sec/speed 3. You now have Gianduja.
  7. Take one pancake and place on a serving plate.
  8. Spread with some of the hazelnut and chocolate mixture, then place another pancake on top and so on until there is no more pancake.
  9. Clean the TM bowl and place butter and milk into it. Cook 2 min/80 C/speed 2.
  10. Add sugar and cocoa and blend for 25 sec/speed 4.
  11. Pour over the pancake cake and leave to set in the fridge for 2 hours before serving.
