Thin Layers Chocolate Cake (Torta de panqueque)

Thin Layers Panqueque Chocolate Cake

A fantastic Chilean Cake.

  • Total Time: 2 hours
  • Yield: 20


  • 225 grams of butter at room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 10 eggs whites and yolks separated
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour all-purpose
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder (unsweetened)

for filling,

  • 2 cups of ganache
  • raspberry jam, optional


  1. Preheat broiler 550F, no fan. Place the oven rack in the middle position.
  2. Prepare a cake pan with high edges (3″ or more). Butter very well and put a circle of parchment paper at the bottom.
  3. In a bowl with the mixer, beat butter and sugar until creamy, about 5 minutes. Mixing on low speed, start adding the yolks one by one, beating until thoroughly incorporated in between.
  4. In another very clean bowl, beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt until stiff, hard peaks, do not overbeat because they will dry.
  5. In a broad bowl, mix the two batters with soft movements, work with a spatula (do not use a mixer), add the sifted flour with cocoa and incorporate with delicate movements.
  6. Pour 1/2 cup of batter into the buttered cake pan and spread with a spoon or spatula around the bottom. Cook for 1 minute and a half to 2 minutes until lightly golden. You can open the oven and look.
  7. Place one thin layer of ganache. It will melt a little, do not worry.
  8. Add 1/2 cup of the batter on top of the ganache, spread, and cook the same way.
  9. I did two layers of ganache, one of raspberry jam, and so on.
  10. Continue cooking until you have no more batter. Finish with a layer of batter.
  11. Let cool entirely on a rack. Refrigerate.
  12. Unmold cold, and decorate with the remaining ganache. Serve the next day. Do not need to refrigerate.
