I have never been impressed with Crepes. For me, they’re just thin pancakes decorated with all things that are hard to hate like sugar, cream, chocolate and fruits. I mean, Making empanada requires more skill and yet, people are going gaga over some thin liquid and flour mixture. But that’s just me.
There are certain things that seem ‘cooler’ when they are not common and I feel that way with crepes. Although I’ve gotta admit that the way crepes are presented looks very cool and appetizing. It’s just that it’s so simple, you’ll feel there’s nothing to expect from it. I don’t know. I have yet to taste a mind blowing crepe.
I never really tried to make crepes before because, well, I don’t like them. But when you got nothing but flour and eggs and you wanna make something different they you gotta make crepes. I don’t know why I felt compelled doing this, that’s not a good thing. If I were to make crepes, I will do something to them not like the normal ones. You know, with a little bit of skill involved.
I have seen a lot of crepe cakes in the internet but I have never really seen one up close. The macro images of these cakes makes me happy in my pants so I wanted to make them my self.
The story starts out as most stories here start out. My friends came, we wanna eat so we cooked. Like what I said, we only have common kitchen ingredients on hand at that time (happens quite often actually) so we did this.
Yeah, a very crude and very rich looking chicken crepe cake. It’s basically minced chicken with home made mayo (eggs and oil) and some other stuff we can mince and put in. I think we even added a dirty sock somewhere there. Nevertheless, it was quite good. After a very rich slice, we all wanted something sweet to cleanse our system. So yeah that’s how it got started.
Another thing though, when I watch TV (not very often) it’s only locked to a certain cooking channel. Changing the channel without my permission will result to bloodshed. Because of that, my friends often absorbs what I am absorbing too which is a good thing. The chicken crepe idea actually came from them that came from Ana Olsen or Laura Calder or that big bossomed woman that makes everything she does looks like something sexual.
Or was it just me again?
Anyway, let’s get started.
So I made the Crepe batter. It was so fucking easy, I did not even have a chance to take a picture. In return here’s a picture of my large cock.
After making the batter, I set it aside while I make my pastry cream. This will separate the layers of the crepe. My recipe calls for 3 egg yolks. I looked inside the ref and almost shat in my pants.
Yes. I only have 1 egg left. Bummer. I had the choice to go out and buy but…
I just have to make do with what I have. And this is what I got.
Just think of it as a healthier version. An egg yolk contains 60 calories while whites only contain 15. And I don’t care.
I cooled my pastry cream down and now off to the crepes themselves!
This pan actually looks like a crepe pan.
My mom bought this. Maybe for eggs. I have seen this for years now and did not really give a shit. Until now.
The batter needs to be thin. The trick here is to swirl the pa — fuck this. Just watch me do it here.
It’s easy. You’ll probably mess up about 2-3 times in your first time until you get it.
After that, I took the base of my cake pan, or really anything that you want to shape your crepes into, and trimmed around it.
Until I did them all. They should all be almost equal in size. This is not really necessary but I did it anyway to give it a more cleaner look.
Then I started the assembly. I first chose the thickest crepe to be my base. Putting it in a cake pan isn’t really necessary but again, I wanna make it really pretty. If you don’t have a cake pan, just align them very well.
When, added a thin layer of pastry cream. It needs to be thin so it does not ooze out when sliced. But not too thin, you still need to taste it.
After I did all the layers, I refrigerated it a while for the layers to set. I used this time to work on my chocolate ganache frosting. What is ganache, you ask?
Yes, that’s it. Boil your cream and pour it over your chocolate chips. Stir until melted. Easy as picking my nose while sleeping.
So I frosted the cake. Placed it in the ref again to set the chocolate. Waited anxiously. I wanted to slice it to see if I really got the layers. And look what I got.
I can see the layers!!!!
I loved it so much that I took a lot of pictures.
So how did it taste?
It was fucking good!!!! You can’t really compare it. Your mind says it’s a cake but you know that it’s not. The layers are separated by this silky pastry cream and it just slides down your throat. You have to even catch it to chew it. Also the chocolate is not overwhelming. It just gives you enough for you to want more.
And here is the fucking money shot.
This is a good no bake recipe for those without ovens and those who are scared of baking. This is so easy. Almost idiot proof (well it worked for me, so I guess…). If you want to do this recipe, drop me a message. I’ll be glad to help you out! 🙂
