Fruit Pancake Cake: The Best Of Both Worlds
Pancakes are the perfect way to kick off any day, and hey, the bigger the better, right? That's what we thought too! After all, why settle for one measly pancake when you can have one gigantic pancake? And why settle for one when you can have two? Is it a pancake? Is it a cake? So many questions that you'll only be able to answer after you've tried this fluffy dessert sandwich for yourself!
For the batter:
- 8½ oz flour
- 2½ oz sugar
- 4 fl oz oil
- 2 tbsp baking powder
- 4 eggs
- 7 fl oz milk
Recipe 1 – Nutella Banana Pancake Cake:
- 4 bananas
- 6 tbsp nutella
- powdered sugar
Recipe 2 – Honey Plum Cream Pancake Cake:
- 8 plums
- 3½ oz cream cheese
- 2 tbsp honey
- 2 oz mixed nuts, chopped
- cinnamon & sugar
1. For Recipe 1, combine the batter ingredients and mix until smooth. Halve 2 bananas lengthwise, place them face down in a 10-inch frying pan, and pour the batter over the bananas so that they are fully covered, but you can still see them.
2. Put a lid on the pan and cook on low heat for about 20 minutes. Once the top is firm to the touch, remove the pancake from the pan and set aside. Repeat Steps #1 and #2 to create the second giant pancake.
3. Put the first XXL pancake face up on a plate and brush with Nutella. Place the second XXL pancake face down on the Nutella. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and your banana pancake cake is ready to enjoy.
4. For Recipe 2, halve 4 plums, place them face down in a 10-inch frying pan, and pour the batter over so that they are fully covered, but you can still see them. Put a lid on the pan and cook on low heat for about 20 minutes. Once the top is firm to the touch, remove the pancake from the pan and set aside. Repeat with the remaining ingredients for a second giant pancake. Combine the cream cheeses, honey, and mixed nuts, and spread over the smooth side of the first plum pancake. Top with the second plum pancake and garnish with cinnamon and sugar.
The best part of this delicious recipe is that you can switch it up depending on what fruits are in season: strawberries and Nutella, apples and peanut butter, mango and cream cheese – the possibilities are endless!
