Let’s stop this blah blah blah and learn how to make these many layers of butter goodness. YUM!

  • Cake batter
    • 4 large eggs
    • 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
    • 1/4 cup of water (60ml)
    • 2 tablespoons of raw honey (or any sweetener you like)
    • 3/4 cup of brown butter (177ml – see directions below)
    • 1/2 cup of almond  flour (120g)
    • 2 tablespoons of psyllium
  • Chocolate glaze
    • 1 cup of 90% dark chocolate (200g)
    • 1/2 cup of pure cream (120ml)
    • 2 tablespoons of raw honey (or any sweetener you like)
  1. Brown butter
    1. In a saucepan let your butter melt and caramelise until it gets a brown colour and that amazing smell.
    2. Reserve.
  1. Cake batter
    1. Preheat oven to 260C (500F).
    2. In a bowl mix together eggs, water, vanilla extract, and honey.
    3. When everything is properly combined, put your bowl in double boiler and keep stirring it for 7 minutes.
    4. After that, put this warm mixture in a stand mixer and mix for about 10 minutes, until it gets fluffy and pale yellow.
    5. Now that your mixture has tripled its volume, slow down the stand mixer and start to incorporate the brown butter little by little.
    6. Turn off your stand mixer and sift in the dry ingredients; fold everything carefully next.
    7. Grease a cake pan with butter and line a parchment paper circle into it.
    8. Place about ½ cup of butter into it. Make sure the batter is even.
    9. Bake it for 2 minutes only (broil it if possible). You can see the top of the cake is brown and caramelised.
    10. Repeat it, layer by layer until all your batter is over.
    11. Let it cool before glazing.
  1. Chocolate glaze
    1. Pour the pure cream in a saucepan and bring it to boil.
    2. Bring it out of the fire and then add the chocolate and honey.
    3. Mix everything together until the chocolate melts and the glaze gets a shine and smooth look.
    4. Pour it over the pancake and it’s done! Enjoy this delicious buttery pancake. 🙂
