Ingredients

For the pancakes

Method

  • STEP 1

    First, make the pancake batter. Tip the eggs, milk, flour and a pinch of salt into a blender and blitz until smooth. Alternatively, whisk the eggs and flour together until smooth, then slowly whisk in the milk and a pinch of salt, then tip into a large jug.

  • STEP 2

    Heat a roughly 20cm frying or crêpe pan over a medium heat, and, using kitchen paper, carefully wipe a little of the butter around the pan. Pour in enough batter to make a thin pancake, and cook for about 1 min on each side until golden. Slide the pancake onto a serving plate, then immediately spread with some of the peanut butter, then chocolate spread. Repeat with a second pancake, then stack this on top of the first. Continue cooking, spreading and stacking until all the batter, peanut butter and chocolate spread is used.

  • STEP 3

    When all the pancakes are stacked into a ‘cake’, dust the top with some icing sugar. Cut into wedges and serve topped with some squirty cream. Will keep at room temperature for up to a day.

RECIPE TIPS

TWIST IT
You can adapt this recipe with other fillings. Make your own chantilly cream for stacking the pancakes by whisking 150ml double cream with 1 tbsp icing sugar and a drop of vanilla extract until soft peaks form. Then, try these suggestions:
LEMON CREAM PANCAKE
At the end of Step 2, spread the pancakes with the chantilly cream, and dollops of lemon curd. 
ESPRESSO PANCAKE CAKE
Whip the chantilly cream with a shot of espresso before making the pancakes in step 1, then spread over the pancakes at the end of step 2, and dust with cocoa powder in step 3.
