  • 250 g of premium flour
  • 4 fresh, carefully selected eggs
  • 500 ml of quality whole milk
  • 50 g finely selected butter, melted
  • A pinch of delicate sea salt
  • 100 g of excellent candied chestnuts, cut into small pieces
  • Icing sugar (to enhance the presentation)
  • Extra virgin olive oil (for cooking pancakes)


  1. In a large bowl, gently sift the premium flour to achieve a light, airy texture.
  2. In another container, break the fresh eggs one by one, ensuring their quality. Beat them gently until you obtain a smooth consistency.
  3. Pour in the quality whole milk gradually while continuing to beat the eggs, thus creating a harmonious connection between the ingredients.
  4. Incorporate the finely chosen, melted butter into the preparation. Mix gently to obtain a smooth and homogeneous consistency.
  5. Add a pinch of delicate sea salt, providing a subtle hint of flavor that will enhance the aromas.
  6. Add the small pieces of excellent candied chestnuts to the pancake batter. Mix carefully, harmoniously distributing these gourmet gems in each pancake.
  7. Allow the dough to rest for about 15 minutes, allowing the flavors to mingle and the texture to refine.
  8. Meanwhile, heat a frying pan over medium heat and add a touch of extra virgin olive oil to cook the pancakes perfectly.
  9. Carefully pour a small amount of batter into the hot pan, tilting the pan to distribute the batter evenly and create a thin, delicate crepe.
  10. Let the pancake cook for about 2 minutes, until the bottom is lightly browned. Carefully turn it over and continue cooking for an additional 1 to 2 minutes.
  11. Repeat this step with the rest of the dough, adding a little extra virgin olive oil to each new pancake to ensure perfect cooking.
  12. Arrange the crepes delicately on top of each other, creating a stack of light, golden treats.
  13. To add a final touch of elegance to your creation, sprinkle the candied chestnut pancakes with a fine shower of icing sugar. This delicate white layer will visually enhance your pancakes while adding extra softness.
