Indulge in this decadent cake made with layers of crepes, chocolate, raspberries and cream stacked into a heaven-sent dessert.

This recipe was created by Nourishing Amy.

Made with chocolate between each layer so it melts and topped with yoghurt or ice cream and more chocolate.

Makes: 1 large or two smaller crepe cakes, serves 4-6
Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

For the Crepes:

  • 300g plain flour
  • 1 tbsp Fairtrade sugar
  • A pinch of salt
  • 600ml plant-based milk
  • Sunflower oil, to grease

To assemble the crepe:

  • 50g Divine Smooth Dark Chocolate with Raspberries chocolate bar, plus extra
  • 300 to 400g thick yoghurt like coconut or use equivalent whipped cream
  • Fresh raspberries, chopped small

Method

  • Make the crepe batter: whisk together the flour, sugar and salt and then whisk in the milk until smooth and no lumps of flour remain.
  • Heat a large non-stick frying pan and wipe the surface with sunflower oil (it’s easy to use a pastry brush to do this or use a spray bottle).
  • Once hot, allow 2 to 3 tbsp of batter per crepe for smaller ones or 4-6 tbsp for larger ones. As soon as the batter hits the pan, swirl it around and you can use an offset spatula to evenly spread out the batter, too.
  • Fry for 2 minutes or until it is turning transparent and turning golden, flip over and cook on the second side. Transfer to a plate to keep warm and continue to make all the crepes (don’t worry if the first few are not as neat).
  • Allow the crepes to cool fully as the yoghurt/cream is cold. Chop the 50g chocolate very small, or grate it.
  • Once cool, add one crepe to a plate, spread with a thin layer of yoghurt/cream and a sprinkling of chocolate and repeat this process to build your crepe cake, adding in some chopped raspberries to some layers.
  • Finish with a layer of yoghurt or cream, whole raspberries and some melted chocolate. Best eaten the same day or keep the crepes (without the filling) in the fridge for 1 day.
