[pancake cake...]

Sounds awesome, right?!

Well, it is pretty great.  Think pancakes, cream, chocolate ganache and raspberries.  I saw it on Jamie Oliver's BBQ special (he made it outside with a bunch of children which was cool) and thought I'd give it a go for my friend K's birthday.

There are a few changes I think I'd make.  I think I'd add some jam or something to sweeten it - particularly if it won't all be eaten immediately.  The next day it was a bit doughy.  Also I had a few executional issues I had but overall I think it worked out okay...

Well, I thought it did anyway.  Hehe.  The next day I took the rest to work and left a note telling my colleagues to help themselves.  They did - it was all gone by the end of the day, but no one really knew it was me that had made it.  While I was having my lunch I heard the raw, unedited version of the review of my cake.  There were many negative responses but I guess it's all good learning, right?!  Haha, and made for an entertaining lunch break for me... Too funny.

It's a pretty simple concept - pancakes, ganache and cream and layer them up.  
You can find the recipe here.
Thanks, Jamie!


  1. uh oh...this looks too good.

  2. It LOOKS awesome, even if it wasn't so great the next day. I don't know how I would have remained undercover in the lunchroom... probably would have either laughed out loud or turned bright red!


Thanks for your comment - you really do make my day!
