Choco-orange Crepe Cake 鲜橙可可千层蛋糕

Another CS recipe, that i love. I have been wanting to try the famous crepe cake for ages but never really give it a go. It is very popular and trendy over here in my place. How about over at your place?? Please share with me?? :DD This french millie crepe but Curtis named it the Crepe Cake.
又是一个Curtis Stone 的好食谱. 很久前很想尝试做了可是一直都没行动..:p
最近在我这非常流行呢!! 这法式千层蛋糕. 



This Choc-orange Crepe Cake looks stunning and tastes absolutely delicious. The chocolate flavour and orange compliment each other very well. 

这巧克力和香橙口味的配的非常搭. 巧克力的香和鲜橙的甜的味道太好了 ^_^
还有那特别的香橙糖浆..吃起来很轻爽!!



At first i was quite worried, about pan frying 20 pieces of crepe. I am asking myself..
Can i do well?
Can my crepe comes out nice, round and fry evenly?
Can i stack them nice and neat??
OH!! why ask so many question?? JUST DO IT!!

Get the ingredients going and lets start....

So..this is my three attempts on pan frying the crepes :O


After finish all 19 pieces of crepes which CS recipe listed 20 pieces. Maybe i used a bit more of the batter for each crepe. Anyway i am happy with this.

Choc-orange Crepe Cake 
Recipe source: Coles/au
(my modification in purple)
PREP TIME30 minutes
COOK TIME40 minutes
SERVES8




  • Ingtredients:
  • 1 cup Plain Flour
  • 1/3 cup Caster Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Cocoa Powder
  • (i used 1 tbsp dark chocolate powder and 1 tbsp chocolate powder)
  • 4 Eggs
  • 2 cups Milk
  • Spray Olive Oil
  • (i used kitchen towel to spread a thin layer of butter onto the frying pan from a nob of butter)
Filling:
  • 500 g Full-cream Ricotta, from the deli
  • (i used 97g cream cheese, that is what i have left in the fridge..:p)
  • 1/2 cup Coles Brand Thickened Cream
  • (i used 1 small box of dairy whipping cream, 250ml)
  • 2 tbsp Coles Brand Icing Sugar, sifted
  • (i used 1 tbsp and 1/2 tsp of condensed milk)
  • finely grated zest of 1 Orange
Orange Syrup:
  • 1 cup Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice
  • 3/4 cup Caster Sugar 
  • (i used 1/2 cup)
  • 2 Navel Oranges, peeled, cut crossways into 7mm-thick slices, seeds removed
To Do:
  1. To make the crepes, sift the flour, sugar and cocoa powder into a bowl. Make a well in the centre. Whisk the eggs and milk in a jug, and gradually add to the flour mixture, stirring gently with a whisk to combine (don’t beat).
  2. Spray a 20cm (base measurement) non-stick frying pan with oil. Heat over medium-high heat. Fill a 1/4 cup measure about two-thirds full with batter. Pour into the centre of the pan, and tilt to evenly cover the base. Cook for about 1 min, until lightly coloured underneath, then turn and cook a further 30 secs. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool.
  3. Repeat, spraying and reheating the pan between crepes, and reducing heat slightly if they’re browning too quickly, to make 20 crepes, stacking them neatly on top of each other as they cool.
  4. To make the syrup, strain orange juice into a medium saucepan. Add the sugar and stir over low heat until the sugar dissolves. Increase heat to medium and bring to the boil. Cook for 7 mins or until syrupy. Remove from heat. Add orange slices and cool to room temperature.
  5. To make the filling, use an electric mixer to beat the ricotta, cream, sugar and orange zest in a bowl until combined.** Use the back of a spoon to spread a heaped tbsp of filling in a thin layer over 1 crepe. Repeat with another crepe, and place it neatly on top. Continue layering with the remaining ricotta mixture and crepes. Cut into wedges and serve with the oranges slices and syrup.
** I put cream cheese, dairy whip cream, condensed milk and orange zest into a mixing bowl. Using a electric mixer to beat everything to combine and smooth.

    20. hi doreen! how are you? over here in ipoh, i dont see them selling in many places, perhaps just 2 outlets. You really did well and cos i see they are perfect to me! I tried making crepes once but they didnt turn out well for me :(

    21. Hi Mui Mui, very impressive crepe cake. Look so delectable and awesome. So far I only make this crepe cake once only. :)) But I don't buy from bakery shop cos so expensive. One small slice cost RM10.90, whole crepe cake is around RM80 onwards depend on flavoring. The cost of making our own is so cheap, only thing a little bit of extra work. But it's worth the hard work to make our own cake.
