Chocolate Crepe Cake: Wonderful and with a Truly Delicate Flavour


For the Chocolate Crepes:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Chocolate Ganache:

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 8 ounces dark chocolate, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter


For the Chocolate Crepes:

Step 1: In a blender, combine flour, cocoa powder, sugar, salt, eggs, milk, melted butter, and vanilla extract. Blend until smooth.

Step 2: Let the batter rest for at least 30 minutes to allow the flour to fully absorb the liquid.

Step 3: Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Pour a small amount of batter into the pan, swirling to spread it thinly. Cook each crepe for about 1-2 minutes on each side or until set.

Step 4: Repeat until all the batter is used, stacking the crepes on a plate as you go.

For the Chocolate Ganache:

Step 5: In a saucepan, heat the heavy cream until it just begins to simmer.

Step 6: Place the finely chopped dark chocolate in a heatproof bowl. Pour the hot cream over the chocolate and let it sit for a minute.

Step 7: Stir the mixture until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth. Add butter and continue stirring until well combined.

Assembling the Cake:

Step 8: Lay a crepe on a serving plate and spread a thin layer of chocolate ganache over it.

Step 9: Repeat, layering crepes and ganache until you use all the crepes.

Step 10: Ensure the top layer is covered with ganache. Refrigerate the cake for at least 2 hours or until the ganache is set.

Step 11: Before serving, you can dust the top with cocoa powder or garnish with shaved chocolate if desired.

Enjoy the velvety layers of this Chocolate Crepe Cake, a delightful fusion of delicate crepes and luscious chocolate ganache that will impress your taste buds and guests alike.
