  • Let pancakes cool , they are easier to handle. Make custard, then layer pancake and custard until you build your cake. Place in fridge to set for about 4 hours.

  • Additional Information

    I have an idea of flambeeing it in alcohol and that would caramalize the sugar coating but I have yet to try that. Let me know if you get to doing that before me and if it was a success.
