Léo celebrated his 30th birthday in New Zealand while we were living in our van. No excuse, we needed a cake for the occasion! So here’s a chocolate peanut pancake. Not the lightest, nor the most photogenic, but it did the job: Léo blew out the candles!
For the pancakes:
- 2 mugs of wheat flour
- 1 tablespoon corn or potato starch
- 3 tablespoons of sugar
- 1 level tablespoon of baking powder
- 1 pinch of salt
- 2 mugs of vegetable milk or water (if you add water, you can eventually add 4 tablespoons of mixed oats)
- 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil (sunflower, grape seed, canola, etc.)
- 3 tablespoons raw cocoa powder
For the icing:
- approx. 150 g dark chocolate (vegan)
1 half mug of vegetable milk
For intermediate layers:
- peanut butter
- 1 stove
- 1 mug (for dosing)
- 1 salad bowl or large bowl
- 1 small saucepan
- 1 pan
- 1 whisk (optional)
- 1 spatula (optional)
- 1 wooden spoon
- 1 tablespoon
Make the chocolate pancakes according to this recipe and add only the cocoa powder to the batter.
Form a stack of chocolate pancakes with a thin layer of peanut butter between each one.
In the small saucepan, melt the chocolate broken into small pieces with the vegetable milk.
As soon as the chocolate is melted (this takes about 3 minutes), pour the icing over the stack of pancakes.
Place candles and get ready to sing.
