What Tiramisu Crepe Cake?
In fact, this fabulously indulgent dessert is a twist on tiramisu using the classic flavours of cream, dark chocolate and coffee but swapping the usual soaked sponge fingers for layers of delightfully squidgy pancakes. There is a certain amount of time and effort involved in putting it all together, but nothing complicated, and it can all be done in advance – making this the perfect finish to a dinner party.
In addition, you can also try our other Natural Flavoured Icing Sugars in our range. Why not give your bakes a delightful twist of flavour.

1. First, make the ganache as it needs time to cool and thicken. In a small saucepan, warm the double cream until it starts to become frothy.
2. Pour over the broken up chocolate in a separate bowl. Stir until the chocolate has melted and you have a smooth mixture. Set aside to cool for at least a couple of hours or until the ganache takes on the texture of chocolate spread.
3. To make the pancakes, whisk together the egg, plain flour and milk until a smooth batter is formed.
4. Melt a scoop of butter in a frying pan on a high heat and once the pan is really hot, pour in a little of the batter, tilting the pan, to form a roughly circular pancake about 20cm across. Don’t worry if it’s not perfect as you can cover a multitude of sins with the whipped cream at the end!
5. Flip the pancake to cook the other side and then transfer to a plate and repeat until you’ve used all the mixture. Leave the pancakes to cool completely.
6. In a large mixing bowl stir the Sugar and Crumbs Vanilla Latte Natural Flavoured Icing Sugar and brandy through the double cream. Beat with a whisk until soft peaks are just forming – be careful not to overbeat it.
7. To assemble the cake, layout a pancake and spread with a thin layer of ganache – don’t be tempted to put too much on as you’ve got a lot of layers to build up. Repeat until you’ve used all the pancakes and then cover the whole thing with your prepared whipped cream.
8. Finish off with a grating of dark chocolate and serve in dainty slices.
