ChoColate Crepe Cake torta al cioccolato Crepe

“...this is what brings a smile
to my face...”
Mix flour, sugar, eggs, yolks
and milk in a blender or food
processor until smooth, then
pour into a jug and stand for 30
minutes. Just before cooking, stir
40g melted butter (2 tbsp) through
the batter.
Warm the ILVE tepanyaki plate
or a non stick pan over medium
high heat. Brush with extra
melted butter, add enough batter
to create approx 18cm base
and swirl to cover. Cook for 45
seconds, then flip and cook for
30 seconds more or until golden.
Repeat with butter and remaining
batter (you should have about
25 crepes), stacking with baking
paper in between. The crepes
can be made 2 days ahead, then
wrapped in foil and refrigerated, or
frozen for up to 1 month. If frozen,
defrost at room temperature for
1 hour.
For the filling melt the chocolate
in a heat proof bowl over a pan
of simmering water (ensure bowl
does not touch water). Stir in
butter, milk, cream, coffee and
sugar, then whisk until mixture
is smooth and sugar dissolves.
Remove from heat, cover and
set aside for 20-30 minutes until
mixture cools and thickens.
Lightly grease a 22cm spring tin.
Place a crepe in pan and spread
with a little filling. Continue
layering, finishing with a crepe.
You should have about 1/3 cup
(80ml) filling left. Cover cake with
foil and chill for about 30 mins
to set.
