Matcha Crêpe Cake

We celebrated our anniversary recently, and I made this Matcha crêpe cake as the dinner dessert. I don’t know if it’s age, we spend more and more time together at home. We would make dinner together, open a bottle of wine or two maybe, try different recipes, talk or listen to the music we both love. We celebrate things, just not very loud, I guess. 🙂

Sorry! I got carried away. It happens quite often lately. Back to the cake! I got this 15cm frying pan the other day for 10 dollars. It’s the perfect size for making crêpe cakes. For the batter in this recipe, I made about 18 crêpes. I think I used 15 crêpes for the cake. The numbers may vary depends on the size of your pan and the thickness of the crêpe you make.

When you make the crêpe, keep the pan at low to medium heat. It might take a little longer to finish making all the crêpes. However, it will not burn it. Pleae be careful not to burn your fingers, guys!

Remember to let the crêpes cool completely. Otherwise, it will melt the whipped cream. If you have fresh fruit, like mango or strawberry, they are perfect for the cake. Just slice the fruit thinly and add with the cream. It will certainly give extra flavour to the cake.

If you are not a fan for Matcha, just leave the Matcha powder out. Plain crêpe is great for the cake too. Alternatively, you can add some beetroot powder to give it a little bit colour. 🙂

  3. Hi Jen!
    I can totally relate. I feel like we have become homebodies now that we are older. I am trying to get out into the sunshine a little more :). Often times, it is really nice to enjoy a quiet dinner and a glass of wine at home.
    Your matcha cake looks so delicious and equally impressive. I really want to try making it. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

    ❤ Alana

    • I am glad you like it, Alana. I think home is the sweetest place in the planet for us. I don’t mind spending tons of time at home, but a little bit sunshine is wonderful too. 🙂
