It”s 2:00am, I”m really sleepy and words aren”t naturally evaporating from the keyboard.

There isn”t really much to say about this cake—except that if I wasn”t going to wake up tomorrow, a plate of this would be a fitting last meal.

Seriously, how (dafuq) could you go wrong with Bailey”s, Chocolate, Nutella, Crepes and Philippine Mangoes?

Bailey’s Nutella Chocolate Mango Crepe Cake

Yield: 6-8 servings

Ingredients for the Crepe Batter

  • 3 cups Milk
  • 6 Eggs
  • 3 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 3 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 tbsp Melted Butter
  • Extra butter for cooking crepes

Ingredients for the Nutella Ganache

  • 1 cup hazelnut chocolate spread
  • 1/2 cup all purpose cream
  • 1-2 tbsp Bailey’s
  • Crepe Toppings
  • 1 fresh mango, diced

Procedure for the Crepes

  1. Whisk together all wet ingredients except melted butter—eggs, milk and vanilla.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine all dry ingredients and mix.
  3. Pour egg-milk-vanila mixture into the flour mixture.
  4. Add in Melted Butter and whisk until smooth.
  5. Strain mixture if you find the it a bit lumpy.
  6. Let it rest for at least two hours.
  7. Heat a non-stick pan over medium fire and put a dab of butter.
  8. When butter has melted and is sizzling, pour 1/3-1/2 cup of the batter.
  9. Swirl batter until it forms a thin pancake-like sheet. Adjust amount according to the size of pan you are using.
  10. Repeat with the rest of the batter. Wipe pan with melted butter as needed.

Procedure for the Nutella Ganache

  1. Whisk together all the ingredients. Set aside.
  2. If it becomes runny, put in the chiller or add more chocolate spread.

Assembly

  1. Stack all crepes.
  2. Pour over ganache.
  3. Top with fresh mangoes.

Notes

  1. It would be best to prepare the batter 1 day in advanced and stored in the chiller to rest. Feel free to use other desired fruits such as bananas, strawberries, oranges, etc. For chocolate/ Nutella lovers, you can spread chocolate mixture in between crepes.

    Can I substitute with pancakes for the crepes?

    • http://twitter.com/katherinejao Katherine Jao

      surely! that would also go well since pancake is very similar to a crepe.
