Layered Black Forest pancake stack with cherries and whipped chocolate ganache

Serves: 8
Cooking Time: 30 mins

Ingredients

  • Pancakes

  • 8 pancakes (buy ready-made or make your own)
  • Ganache

  • 200g dark chocolate, chopped
  • 160ml fresh cream
  • 100g butter
  • fresh cherries, to serve
  • fresh cream, to serve

Instructions

1

Melt the chocolate, cream and butter in a double boiler until smooth and glossy. Set aside to cool.

2

Whip the ganache using a hand mixer until light and spreadable (it must be very soft or you will tear the pancakes).

3

To assemble the stack, spread the whipped ganache over each pancake and stack on top of each other.

4

Press the stack down firmly so that all the layers ‘stick’ together. Cut the stack into wedges and serve with fresh cherries and whipped cream.
