Tefal challenged me to come up with an exciting new pancake recipe and I don't know why, but I immediately thought of homemade marshmallow fluff.
I've never tried the fluff sold in jars, but I can tell you the homemade fluff is sweet, rich and velvety. So decadent to eat.
I made traditional Scotch Pancakes and layered them with homemade fluff and topped the whole creation with melted chocolate, that oozed down the sides.
Oh boy it was good, but it's very sweet and definitely one for sharing.
My tips for making a successful Homemade Fluff Chocolate Pancake Tower:
2. Make sure the fluff is really thick and the pancakes are cool before you stack them.
3. If you are nervous about your pancake tower standing proud, then use a cocktail stick in the middle to secure them, but make sure you let your guests know it's in there.
4. Pour the melted chocolate over at the last minute, as the warmth from the chocolate will start to melt the fluff.
So get flipping then stack to your hearts content!
Oh and try not to just eat all the marshmallow fluff with a spoon until you feel sick! (This is harder than it sounds.)

Homemade Fluff & Chocolate Pancake Tower
A decadent tower of scotch pancakes, sandwiched together with homemade marshmallow fluff and finished with a drizzle of warm melted chocolate.
- 120g self-raising flour
- 30g caster sugar
- a pinch of salt
- 1 large egg
- 142ml/ ¼ pint milk
- 2 large egg whites
- 112g/ ½ cup caster sugar
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- a pinch of salt

1. First make your pancakes (this is up to you, you could make the fluff first) and heat a non-stick frying pan.2. In a jugs whisk together 1 large egg and half a cup of milk3. Sieve the flour into a large bowl with the sugar and salt, pour in the egg mixture and whisk in until well combined.4. Pour 1 tbsp of batter into the pan for each pancake. Use the back of your spoon to smooth them into a circle. Each pancake with take a couple of minutes, once they have a lot of bubbles over the surface, have a peek underneath. If it is golden, flip it. It only needs seconds on the other side to cook.5. Make the fluff now. You need a glass bowl that will fit over a pan to make a ban marie. Add a little hot water to the pan and simmer. Make sure the bottom of the bowl does not touch the water.6. To the bowl add the egg whites, sugar, salt, syrup and vanilla extract. Whisk for 10 minutes until you have a thick glossy mixture, then take of the heat and continue whisking until the mixture has turned into thick, white and glossy fluff.7. Melt the chocolate in a bowl over the pan you whisked the fluff over. Just heat the water again and add a little more if required.8. Stack you pancakes, sandwiching them together with fluff and finish off with a drizzle of melted chocolate just before you serve them. Remember to tell guests if you have added a toothpick to secure the stack.9. Enjoy!
