Matcha Mille Crêpe Cake

This is a simple Matcha Mille Crepe Cake Recipe! With Mille meaning thousand in French and Crêpe meaning thin pancake, this cake is essentially known as the thousand layer cake! This recipe is by the Youtuber, AmandaTastes, who is known for incredible asian inspired recipes such as this.

 

Matcha crepes
Ingredients:
240g of low-gluten flour
4 eggs
650g of milk
50g of butter
2 tablespoons of cooking matcha powder (10g)
90g of fine sugar
A dash of salt
About 25g of vegetable oil

Note: You will also need some extra cooking matcha to sprinkle on top

Method:

  1. Start by mixing the low-gluten flour, fine sugar, salt and Matcha Tea
  2. Add the eggs to the mixture and slowly start whisking
  3. Slowly add the milk bit by bit, ensuring that you work each bit of milk in before pouring more
  4. Microwave the butter, then add the butter into the mixture once it has just melted
  5. Whisk the mixture until a smooth consistency forms and everything is fully combined into the mixture
  6. Pour the batter through a fine strainer to catch any clumps of batter, then cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least one hour
  7. Use a flat, non stick pan, and oil the pan while it is on a low heat
  8. Once the pan is warm enough, pour a small amount of the resulting batter into the pan
  9. Spread the batter evenly across the pan by moving the side to side until the batter is spread to a good consistency
  10. Let the crepe batter sit on the first side for around 20 seconds or until it looks like its solidified, then gently flip the crepe to the other side and allow it to sit for around 8-10 seconds
  11. You should repeat the cooking process until you have around 20 crepes, which should be all of the batter. Stack the crepes on top of each other and wrap them in a clean lint free kitchen cloth


Cream
Ingredients:
600ml of fresh cream
80g of fine sugar
A few drops of vanilla extract
A large bowl full of ice

Method:

  1. Start by pouring the cream into a medium sized bowl. Then fit the bowl containing the cream, into a large bowl that contains ice (the ice should surround the bowl for the cream and keep the cream cold) 
  2. Now add the sugar and vanilla into the cream and whisk the ingredients together until the cream has just started to thicken. Be careful not to under whisk or the dish will be runny. Be careful not to over whisk or the cream will become stiff and grainy

Assembly

  1. Start by separating the cooled crepes one by one, restacking them onto a small plate. Once they are all stacked evenly onto the plate, cut off the overhanging edges so that all crepes are of the same shape
  2. Take one crepe and spread a thin-ish layer of cream on it, smoothing the cream with a spatula, then stack the next crepe on top and again add a thin-ish layer of cream. Repeat this process until you have used up all of the crepes and cream
  3. Store the cake in the fridge for at least 3 hours so that it can set
  4. Once it’s set, remove it from the fridge and sprinkle some matcha green tea powder on top. The cake is now ready to serve!


Tips

  • The first few crepes will not be perfect, use only a little bit of the batter until you are comfortable with making them properly
  • Be very careful not to over or under whisk the cream, otherwise you will have to remake it
  • Do not cut into the cake until it has set in the fridge for the 3 hours, otherwise it will fall apart
