Instructions

Matcha Mille Crepe Cake Instructions

  1. Heat milk, cream and sugar on medium heat until sugar is fully dissolved. Take off heat immediately once sugar is dissolved, do not bring to a boil.

  2. Allow milk and sugar mixture to come to room temperature.
  3. Pour into blender.
  4. Add egg, oil, cake flour and matcha powder into blender.
  5. Blend until the mixture becomes homogenous. A few pulses should do, do not over blend.
  6. Pour equal amounts through a sieve into two mixing bowls.

  7. Let rest for 1 hour or overnight in the fridge.

  8. Immediately before cooking, add 1-3 tablespoons of water into one bowl of the crepe batter to thin it out.

  9. Heat a pan on low-medium heat, using a pastry brush, coat pan generously with butter for the first crepe. Pan is ready when the butter sizzles as it hits the pan. 

  10. Using a small ladle, pour batter onto pan, swirl the batter around until it coats the pan evenly.
  11. Set timer for 3 minutes. Cook first side for approximately 2 minutes. The crepe will bubble up and once the sides can be picked up with a silicone tong without tearing, the crepe can be flipped with a flat spatula. It will look slightly golden.

  12. Watch the second side closely. It will cook much faster, about 1 min. Remove from heat before it turns brown.

  13. Place on cooling rack to cool before stacking on plate.
  14. For subsequent crepes, coat the pan with a very small dab of butter and repeat steps #10-13.

  15. Once all the crepes are finished (26-28 in total), set them aside and prepare the cream filling.

Chantilly Cream Instructions

  1. Place a mixing bowl and beaters in the freezer to chill. It will help the cream whip better.
  2. Place cream in the chilled mixing bowl, then beat on low speed until the beater starts leaving light tracks in the cream. Add icing sugar.
  3. Increase speed to medium-high. 

  4. Stop beating when the cream starts to get stiff and turns from glossy to matte. Do not over whip.

Assembly

  1. Once cream is completed, use immediately.

  2. Spread a thin layer of cream in between each layer of crepe. 

  3. Place in an air tight container and let set overnight. 

  4. Before serving, dust some matcha powder onto the top layer with a sifter. 

  5. Cut into 8 slices. Enjoy!
