Pancake cake

If you cannot decide what you love the most: the pancakes or chocolate cake than here I have a combination of both. Yes, a delicious pancake cake very easy to make. It is a very fine one and looks so fancy even if you start from trivial pancakes.

  • pancakes made in advance
  • 500ml milk
  • 500ml sour cream
  • 8 yolks
  • 160g sugar
  • 6 teaspoons corn starch 
  • 400g black chocolate

  1. Heat the milk with sour cream in a pan without boiling them.
  2. In a bowl, beat the egg yolks with sugar.
  3. Take some spoons from the pan, add them in the yolks and mix to obtain a more liquid composition.
  4. Incorporate the corn starch as well and mix.
  5. Pour slowly the yolk mixture in the the milk one and mix continuously.
  6. Put the pan on low heat and continue to stir until it becomes creamy.
  7. Melt the chocolate in bain-marie and add it in the cream.
  8. Layer the cream between the pancakes.
  9. Cover the cake with a plastic foil and add a heavy pan on top to insure a well pressing.
  10. Let the cake in a cold place over night (or for 12 hours) with the weight over.
  11. Remove the weight and the plastic foil and serve it.

The chocolate filling cream was inspired from here.
