This is THE perfect pudding for Shrove Tuesday…(in two days in case you had forgotten!) Our children have the day planned…
American Pancakes for breakfast, a crepe with ham and cheese in the lunch box and then spinach layers for dinner with this recipe here for dessert!! It will be death by pancakes but fun!! I will be making pancakes all day it looks like! 🙂
This one is inspired by a food buzz article I read by a lady called Angie Tee – I have adapted her recipe slightly as I do not like to put butter and too much sugar in my pancakes – but the idea and composition are all hers!
It is like making a layer cake – chocolate crepes, then nutella, then banana….until there is no more and you have a tower to feast on! Time consuming yes, worth it? Oh yes! Enjoy!
This makes a large portion!!!!! The pictures show the cake I made – and I still had about 12 pancakes left over.300g flour 7 tbsp cocoa powder 2 tbsp sugar 1/4 tsp salt 3 cups of milk (equivalent to about 750ml) 3 eggs 4 tbsp veg oil 8 tbsp beer – this not only adds a bit of yeast to the batter but also crispness – can be omitted though 1 jar of Nutella – warmed 3-4 bananas
- Combine flour, cocoa, sugar and salt in a bowl
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, beer and vegetable oil
- Pour the liquids into the dry ingedients and whisk until well combined
- Pour the batter into a jug (easier for making the pancakes) and leave to set for 15ish minutes – you can prepare the batter the day before and leave, cling filmed, in the fridge over night
- When ready to make your pancakes, gently whisk the batter – it should pour easily and have a cream like consistency (add a bit of milk if too thick)
- Heat and rub a non stick pan with a tiny bit of vegetable oil
- Pour the batter onto the pan and swirl it around to coat evenly. Once the sides start to turn upwards, flip your pancake and cook the other side
- Lay pancakes on a plate and keep warm in an oven while you finish flipping the rest of the pancakes
- Heat the nutella in a bowl of hot water – or microwave quickly if you have one (it is easier to spread when warm)
- Slice your bananas thinly…
- Layer….and enjoy…
