- Flour – a half cup;
Milk – 500 ml;
Eggs – 3 pieces;
Salt – a pinch;
A little oil for frying.
For the cream:
- Chocolate bar;
Walnuts – to taste;
Butter – half a tablespoon;
Half a lot of salt;
Cream – 300 ml;
Sugar – half a glass;
A bit of grated chocolate for decoration;
A few fresh berries of raspberries or cherries.
Mix the flour, milk, eggs and salt in a bowl until a homogenous dough is obtained. Then pour a little vegetable oil on the pan with a non-stick coating and hold it for one or two minutes over medium heat. Remove the frying pan from the stove, wipe it with a paper towel. Return to the plate and pour into it as much dough as necessary, so that the entire bottom is closed. Pake the pancakes for 2-3 minutes on each side until they get a golden color.
Next, according to our recipe, two very delicious fillings for the cake layer should be made. To do this, melt the chocolate in the water bath, adding butter and a little bit of salt and stirring occasionally. While the chocolate mass is being prepared, chop the toasted walnuts in advance. You can do this either with a mortar, or by putting nuts in a plastic bag and rolling them with a rolling pin.
When the nuts are crushed to a fine crumb, pour them into the melted chocolate, add 50-100 ml of cream and stir well. Everything, the first stuffing is ready! Now, before you is an uneasy task – to resist the temptation and not to eat what you have got to be than to miss the layers of the future cake. In order not to succumb to the temptation, get distracted from the chocolate delicacy by preparing a second cream for the filling. To do this, whip the remaining cream with sugar and vanilla until you have a thick mass.
Picking up a pancake cake
And now proceed to the most interesting – start to”build” a cake. On the dish that you prepared for the dessert, put some chocolate cream (so that the first cake is soaked underneath and not dry), then lay the first pancake. Spread it with chocolate mixture, put the second pancake and sprinkle it with whipped cream.
Continue spreading flat cakes, alternating chocolate and cream, until you get the product you need. Just do not forget to leave some cream for the topmost layer. Using a spatula or a wide knife, spread the top and sides, then sprinkle the dessert with grated chocolate and decorate with raspberries or cherries.
Even do not hesitate – everyone will like your creation so much that it will not leave any crumbs! And if you treat them to your girlfriends, then be prepared for the fact that they will ask you to share the recipe.
Swedish pancake cake with berries and cream
Such a pancake cake in Sweden is considered classic. And although the recipe at first glance may seem complicated, in reality everything is simple – it`s just pancakes with a delicious layer that look like real cake. This dessert is great for birthdays, parties and festive feasts, because it is able to impress both children and adults. We recommend you pay attention to this recipe !
- Buttermilk – 625 ml;
Wheat flour – 200g;
3 large eggs;
Sugar – 2 tablespoons;
Vanilla – 1 teaspoon;
Ground cardamom – half a teaspoon;
Zest of half a lemon;
Butter for frying.
For berry sauce:
- 300 g of a mixture of berries (blueberries, red and black currants, raspberries, blackberries);
Apple juice – 80 ml;
Sugar – 2 tablespoons;
Flax seed – 1 teaspoon.
For cream and decoration:
- Fat cream (38 percent) – 250 mL;
Sour cream – 250g;
Mixture of berries – 250 g.
In a bowl, mix all the ingredients for the dough. Make sure that the mass is homogeneous, without lumps. Heat a frying pan, melt some oil and pour a thin layer of dough. Fry each pancake for 1-2 minutes on each side. In all you should get about 12 pancakes. Finished pancakes, send to the refrigerator for half an hour-hour, so they cool off properly before assembling the cake.
While the pancakes are cooled, prepare the berry sauce. Pour the apple juice into a saucepan, dip the berries there and pour out the sugar. Wait until it all boils, reduce the heat and simmer under the closed lid for 5 minutes. Then remove the lid and cook the sauce for another 5-10 minutes. Remove from heat and use a fork to mash the berries. Add the seed of flax, stir. Put the berry sauce in the refrigerator so that it also cools properly.
The recipe is nearing completion! You only have to beat the cream into a thick foam, and then mix them with sour cream. Now you can collect the cake: spread pancakes, sandwiching them with cream and sprinkling with berry sauce. Top the cream with berries. Serve immediately after preparation.
This cake can be prepared in a variety of ways and with each season taken into account. In the autumn-winter period, you can revive the dough for pancakes with such”warm” spices as cinnamon, ginger or nutmeg, and instead of fresh berries take frozen or use, for example, apples. In the spring, you can use rhubarb – the sauce from it is very well combined with vanilla cream. And also – pancakes and sauce can be made for a day or two before the holiday, and then easily and quickly collect the cake before the actual serving.
Cook easily and enjoy the magical taste of pancake dessert!
