Chocolate Crepes Recipe

What to do when simple crepes just won’t cut it anymore? Add some cocoa and make chocolate crepes! Even better, stack them up for a cake!

Completely sugar free recipe and more delicious than any other breakfast we tried so far. OK, it might not be a breakfast for every day but for the weekends, it’s just the best. This recipe yields about 20 crepes depending on how thick we will make them. So there is room to grow the number of layers or practice the crepe flipping. Also if we like thicker creamier layers just halve the amount of pastry we would prepare and fill the same amount of cream between them.
This crepe cake should need at least an hour in the fridge for us to be able to cut it. If it isn’t cooled down properly the layers will slide all around while we try to cut them so give it some rest.
Unfortunately, this cake won’t last too long as the bananas we have been using aren’t baked. We can use some other sweetener to get around this problem or eat up the whole cake quickly. Decisions, decisions….

  5. Tilt the frying-pan around until it is covered with the batter. Try to make similar sized crepes for the cake layers.Chocolate crepes cake recipe - SunCakeMom
  6. Depending on the heat we use, one side of the crepe can be done in 1 – 3 minutes. Check the bottom of the crepe. If it doesn’t stick, it’s good to go. Sometimes it’s good even if it sticks. When the top starts to show signs of dryness, it should be good to flip.Chocolate crepes cake recipe - SunCakeMom
  7. Flip the crepe then bake for about half the time the first side needed. Chocolate crepes cake recipe - SunCakeMom
  8. When golden brown spots starts to appear, take the crepe out and start the next one. Repeat until all the batter is finished. Chocolate crepes cake recipe - SunCakeMom
  9. Let the crepes cool before layering them with cream.Chocolate crepes cake recipe - SunCakeMom
  10. Whip cream and mix in the bananas or sweetener of choice. Bananas need to be ripe with a couple of brown spots.Chocolate crepes cake recipe - SunCakeMom
  11. Layer the crepes with the cream.Chocolate crepes cake recipe - SunCakeMom
  12. Once the layers are done, cover the cake gently so the top layer won’t dry out and put the cake into the fridge for at least a couple of hours so the cream can set. Mind not to use bananas as sweetener if the plan is to keep the cake there for days.Chocolate crepes cake recipe - SunCakeMom
  13. The longer the cake can set, the better we can slice but after about four days it won’t provide so much pleasures as the first day.Chocolate crepes cake recipe - SunCakeMom
