I couldn't have asked for better weather. We were sweating with our "food coma bellies" in the sun this year, and decided to just not do anything! Not even the tie dye shirts I had planned to make with my best friend. In retrospect, I absolutely needed it. Currently, my life is full of action. Since my work has taken over my entire life there's barely a day on which I'm not working on recipe creations, educational content and food shootings. I absolutely don't want to complain. I am living my personal dream. The only thing I still need to learn is balance! Therefore my birthday was perfect, just like this cake!
If you're looking for a super easy birthday cake or brunch recipe that doesn't require any special equipment, this is your recipe. Take a read!
There's basically no equipment needed for this cake. For the pancake batter, I used a hand mixer and to mix the berry cream filling just a regular spoon. A stove comes in handy to fry the pancakes but that's it. :) The same ease holds true when it comes to the ingredients. I made the pancakes without eggs this time to make it fully vegan and I have to admit, I like the vegan pancakes as much as the "classic ones", I showed you in my last "German pancake recipe".
For the cream filling, I used a mix of coconut and soy yoghurt from a German supermarket brand called Alnatura. Even though the label contains a stabilizer, it has been the "cleanest" vegan yoghurt label I have found in a German supermarket shelve so far. And the taste was actually super yummy combined with the frozen berries and loads of fresh ground vanilla. Whatever brand you use, I recommend to always take a look at the label to ensure that there's no unnecessary sugar or other additives added.
As mentioned before, this dreamy and super berry pancake cake is one of the simplest "cakes" I know. All you need to do is whisk the batter, prep the cream, fry the pancakes and assemble everything to look beautiful. The only thing I want to point out is that the cake is made to be served "fresh". Therefore, don't prep it the day before and serve it the next day. The cream will taste soggy. Instead, prep everything right before serving for the perfect cake experience. :)
