MILLE CREPE CAKE
Servings: 8

INGREDIENTS
Crepes
6 tablespoons (100 grams) butter
3 cups (675 milliliters) milk
6 eggs
1½ cups (210 grams) flour
⅔ cup (80 grams) cocoa powder
7 tablespoons (105 grams) sugar
4 cups (1 liter) whipped cream

Ganache
1 cup (225 milliliters) heavy cream
4 tablespoons (200 grams) sugar
6 ounces (170 grams) chocolate
1 tablespoon (15 grams) butter

¼ cup (40 grams) powdered sugar, optional for topping

PREPARATION
1. Make the crepes by warming melting the butter and allowing it to brown slightly. Set aside.
2. In the same pot, warm the milk. Remove from heat.
3. In a bowl, whisk flour, cocoa powder, and sugar. Mix in eggs, then gradually mix in butter and warm milk. Chill.
4. On a nonstick skillet over medium heat, pour ¼ cup of crepe batter, and tip the pan to cover the entire bottom surface. Cook until bottom surface of crepe begins to brown, then flip. Repeat until all of the crepe batter is used. Cool crepes.
5. Stack crepes on top of each other, with whipped cream between each layer. Once assembled, trim edges for a cleaner look, if desired.
6. For the ganache, bring the heavy cream and sugar to a boil, and pour over chocolate and butter. Let cool, and spread over the crepe cake.
7. Top with sifted powdered sugar (optional).
8. Enjoy!

  1. You know. I made this, and it definitely looked better than it tasted. All the attraction comes from the layer beauty

  2. What they didn't tell you is that you have to let the batter sit out for 30 minutes with a towel over it to get the air bubbles out, if you don't the you just get watery pancakes.

  3. Am I the only one that goes full Gordon Ramsay when I watch these videos?

    Me: "*WHY THE FUCK ARE YOU ADDING IN 7 TABLESPOONS OF SUGAR? ARE YOU REALLY EXPECTING ME TO MEASURE OUT A PERFECT TABLESPOON 7 TIMES?! JUST ADD IN A HALF A CUP GOD DAMMIT." "*AGAIN WITH THE PRECISE ASS TABLESPOONS. JUST PUT IN A THIRD OF A CUP OF SUGAR. IT'LL TASTE BETTER WITH THE EXTRA SUGAR, THERE'S NO NEED TO BE SO GOD DAMN SPECIFIC."

  4. personally, i do not recommend this. it is very tasteless. i've tried it, put a lot of effort plus hard work in finding the ingredients, flip the crepe is the hardest one. but because of tasty on how it looks encourged me be patience n wait the result til the end. not worth it. the taste is very very… tasteless cant find words to describe hahaha.

    but you can try 🙂 no offense guys

  5. I would give this to my mom for her birthday because she loves crépes every time we go to IHOP she orders crepes.

  6. Whenever I see someone pour heavy cream over chocolate, I imagine Ann Reardon saying "now this’ll make a nice chocolate ganache." Yes with her accent and everything
