Easy and unusual recipe to make for parties or picnics: chocolate and salted caramel stacked pudding using pancakes. You would not expect that so your guests or kids will be surprised!
1 pack Sweet Pancakes (we used Abra-ca-Debora Sweet Dutch Pancakes for this recipe)
300ml double cream
1 pack toasted, flaked almonds
For the chocolate ganache
400ml double cream
3 tbsp golden syrup
2 tsp vanilla extract
600g dark chocolate, very finely chopped
60g unsalted butter, cubed
For the salted caramel
175g golden castor sugar
120ml double cream
1/2 tsp sea salt flakes
120g unsalted butter, cubed
To make the chocolate ganache, bring 300ml of cream to boil in a large pan with the syrup and sugar. As soon as it boils, remove from heat and stir in chocolate and vanilla. Stir well to quickly melt, then stir in the butter. Refrigerate until spreadable.
Beat double cream until it forms stiff peaks, refrigerate
To make salted caramel, add sugar to a heavy-based saucepan, add two tbsp water. Gently heat and stir until sugar dissolves. Turn heat up to medium-high and allow syrup to come to boil, without stirring. Bubble and simmer whilst occasionally swirling pan, until caramel turns golden amber. Remove from heat and gently stir in cream and salt, followed by butter. Cool completely.
Layer pancakes with a spread of caramel and chocolate ganache between each one, leave the top one bare.
Coat outside of cake, including surface with whipped cream. Press flaked almonds all round side, and sprinkle top with choc drops.
