Matcha Gold Crepe Cakes

Whipped cream, chocolate and gold leaf make this the most stunning use for matcha yet.

Ingredients

  • For the crepes:
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 3/4 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tablespoon matcha powder
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • For the whipped cream:
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon rum
  • To garnish:
  • Chocolate, melted
  • Matcha powder
  • Gold leaf

Steps

  1. Combine ingredients for crepe in a bowl and mix well. Pour batter through strainer and let it rest in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
  2. Combine heavy cream, sugar and rum and beat until stiff peaks form.
  3. Pour a small amount of crepe batter onto a heated frying pan and cook on both sides. Repeat with remaining batter.
  4. Set crepes aside to cool. Once they have cooled down, spread each crepe with whipped cream, stacking them on top of each other. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and freeze for 4 hours.
  5. Cut off the four sides to create a square cake. Then cut this into four equal squares. Pour chocolate over the crepe squares and let it dry. Sprinkle with matcha powder and gold leaf.
