Tiramisu Crepe Cake

This fabulously indulgent dessert puts a twist on tiramisu using the classic flavours of cream, dark chocolate, coffee and brandy 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.

Ingredients

Instructions

Tiramisu Crepe Cake

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, lay out 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.
