I am SO excited about today's recipe!! So the picture above is cake, all cake, vanilla cake to be specific with butter frosting in the middle, and maple ganache. I will tell you it tastes just like a pancake! It is SO good! Here is how to make it...

Here is what you need to make the ganache:

Cream

Salt

White Chocolate Chips

Maple Flavoring (imitation maple, that you can find at Walmart)

NOTE: I didn't end up needing to add brown food coloring.

You need to heat the cream up, I did it in the microwave, if you do that just make sure you keep an eye on it. You can also do it on the stove. You just want it to be hot enough to melt the chips.

Once it is hot enough add the flavoring and mix together.

And pour the cream mixture over the chips.

Leave it for 30 sec. and then mix it. It will take a little time for it all to come together. But if some of the chips still haven't melted, microwave it in 10 sec. intervals until it is all smooth.

Set aside.

NOTE: You need to make the ganache first so it has time to cool.

For the cake you will need:

Cake mix (I used Pillsbury yellow)

Eggs

Oil

Water

First separate the egg yolks from the egg whites. Place the whites in the bowl of a stand mixer and beat until firm-meduim peaks.

Next place the cake mix, egg yolks, water, and oil in a bowl and mix until smooth.

Then add the whites and fold until combined.

Then get your electric griddle on and spray it with cooking spray (you want to spray it a lot, so the panCAKE's don't stick). You can also use a non-stick skillet. Also get a 1/4 cup measuring cup, lined baking sheet, and (not shown) spatula.

Place 1/4 cup of batter on the griddle and spread it our gently. Then wait until the bottoms are the color of a pancake. Then when they are ready, flip them in one quick motion.

You will know when they are done by the other side being brown and a cake tester coming out clean.

Place them on a lined baking sheet and cover them with another sheet of baking paper for the next batch. Then do the same thing until all the batter is gone.

When the panCAKE's are done set them aside to cool and make the "butter".

Take 2 lemon fruit chews (or whatever you can find that would be shapable), and shape them into a square.

IMG_4378

Set aside. Next make the butter frosting.

Take softened butter, and beat it until smooth.

Next add the powdered sugar and mix.

Now set up your space to assemble it all.

Take a plate (I just used a dinner plate), and put a little bit of butter frosting in the middle.

Then place your biggest panCAKE on the bottom and cover with a layer of frosting. Keep doing until all the panCAKE's are used.

And then to keep it from falling over, put wooden dowels in the top.

Then start pouring the ganache. If it is to thick microwave it in 10 sec. intervals. I started at the top and then pushed it down the sides to look like syrup.

Then just put the "butter" on top and ENJOY!! I hoped you enjoyed this tutorial!
