Decadent Chocolate Crepe Cake
Total TimePrep: 1 hour + chilling Cook: 1 hour + chilling
Gorgeous cake, yes, but WAYYY too time-consuming unless you're working in a high-end bakery and getting paid to make such concoctions. For anyone trying to make this at home, without help, you might want to consider making the crepes a day ahead of assembling them. Stack and refrigerate, well wrapped, with wax paper or parchment between each crepe. .
This recipe has WAY too much oil. I would recommend doing half the butter and 1/2 cup more flour, or just do this recipe by tasty, https://tasty.co/recipe/mille-crepe-cake
A great recipe, for a special occasion. Followed directions, no issues turned out wonderful. There is some work involved but well worth it. I have made it twice now, and have the guests always wanting seconds. I cheated by using the electric crepe maker. Thanks
It really a beautiful cake. But, beware! This thing was so difficult it took me ALL DAY to make!! You have to make 30 crepes all 2tbs of batter at a time!!! You have to have a double boiler and a candy thermometer. I felt like a French chocolatier this thing is so beatiful and decadent I don't think I'm even worthy to eat the thing!!! Also, I can't get the ganache to set properly so I can put it on the sides without pooling at the base of it ?? So my advice is, just cut the recipe in half and only make 15 crepes instead of 30... At least by then you might have your sanity
