Ahhhh Pancake Tuesday, it’s the day all Irish people look forward to most. The day when you can have pancakes for breakfast, lunch and dinner and nobody can give out to you because it’s Lent the next day.
While pancakes are fairly standard, whether you like them with lemon and sugar, maple syrup and bacon or even savoury, the pancake doesn’t get much shaking up. But that’s because it doesn’t need it.
So rather than trying to fix something that ain’t broke, we just…upgraded it a bit! Instead of having one pancake after another, you can have several, in a SLICE of Pancake cake. Oh yes.
Here’s the recipe:
For the batter:
Makes 12 pancakes
- 100g plain flour
- 2 large eggs
- 300ml milk
- 1tsp. vanilla extract
- Pinch of salt
- In a large bowl, combine all ingredients into a smooth batter and chill in the fridge for up to an hour.
- Cook the pancakes as you normally would and set aside until you are finished all of the batter.
- Spread your filling of choice (ours is Nutella and mini marshmallows) on each one and stack them on top of one another so it resembles a cake.
- Add some raspberries on top and cut a slice of chocolate-y, marshmallow-y, pancake-y goodness in perfect proportions.
Because you're giving up chocolate tomorrow, remember?!
