How to Make It
  1. For the caramel sauce, combine the soft brown sugar and butter in a saucepan. Warm over a low heat, stirring, until the sugar has dissolved.
  2. Add the cream, stir well, and bring to the boil over a moderate heat. Simmer for 4-5 minutes until thickened and golden-brown. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool slightly.
  3. For the pancakes, combine all the ingredients in a food processor or blender. Blend on high until smooth. Chill for 1 hour.
  4. After chilling, melt a knob of butter in a large nonstick crepe or sauté pan set over a medium heat until hot.
  5. Add a small ladle of the pancake batter to the pan, tilting to coat evenly with the batter. Cook until set and coloured underneath, about 30-45 seconds, before flipping and cooking for another 20-30 seconds.
  6. Slide out of the pan onto a plate lined with greaseproof paper. Repeat step 6 for the remaining crepes, using a little fresh butter for each one.
  7. To serve, whip the cream in a bowl to almost stiff peaks. Warm the chocolate hazelnut spread by microwaving it in a small heatproof bowl until smooth and runny. Reheat the caramel sauce in the same way.
  8. Spread the crepes with the cream, chocolate spread and caramel sauce, stacking them on a cake stand.
  9. Top the cake with a thick layer of the remaining cream and a drizzle of caramel sauce. Top with chopped pecans before serving.
