Crêpe Cake With Chocolate, Orange and Cointreau

Either way, this light yet decadent crêpe cake is a must-make.

What's great about this cake is that everything is interchangeable and optional. Feel free to make this cake sans orange components if you don't love the taste of orange and chocolate together. Either way, this light yet decadent crêpe cake is a must-make.

What You'll Need
Makes 6–8 slices


  • 4 eggs
  • 1½ cups milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 2¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • Finely grated zest of 1 orange
  • 5½ tbsp salted butter

Chocolate Ganache

  • 7 oz. dark chocolate (70% cocoa)
  • 3½ oz. milk chocolate
  • 1¼ cups whipping cream
  • 2 tbsp Cointreau or other orange liqueur, or 2 tbsp whipping cream mixed with the finely grated peel of 1 orange (both optional)
  • ¾ cup whipping cream
  • Chopped chocolate (70% cocoa)
  • 1¾ oz. fresh raspberries (optional)



Step 1: Beat together the eggs, milk, water, flour, salt, sugar and orange zest in a large bowl until all the clumps have dissolved. Let the mixture set at room temperature for about 30 minutes.

Step 2: Melt the butter and let cool slightly.

Step 3: Beat the butter into the batter. Heat a crêpe pan or small frying pan (6 to 8 inches in diameter) over high heat. Add a little butter to the pan. When the butter stops sizzling, the pan is hot enough.

Step 4: Lower the heat to medium and spoon about 2 tablespoons of the batter onto the hot pan. Quickly lift and tilt the pan in a circle to spread the batter evenly over the entire bottom of the pan to make thin crêpes. Stack them on a plate, layering waxed paper between each crêpe so it will be easier to separate them later. Let the crêpes cool completely.

Chocolate Ganache

Step 1: Chop the dark chocolate and milk choco­late into fine pieces and put in a medium heatproof bowl.

Step 2: In a saucepan, carefully heat the whip­ping cream and Cointreau. Remove the pan from the heat just before the liquid reaches its boiling point. Pour the cream over the chocolate pieces and let stand for a few seconds. Stir until the chocolate melts completely and the mixture becomes a shiny cream.

Step 3: Pour ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons of the chocolate and cream mixture into a separate small bowl and set aside (this ganache will be used for decorating the cake). Let both bowls of ganache cool at room tempera­ture until it is a spreadable consistency.


Step 1: Lay a crêpe on a cake platter and spread with a thin layer of chocolate ganache (the ganache not reserved for decorating). Repeat layering crêpes and ganache until you have used up all the crêpes and the bowl of chocolate ganache. Refrigerate for about 1 hour to allow the cake to firm up.

Step 2: Whip the cream and spoon or pipe it on top of the cake.

Step 3: Heat the remaining ganache carefully in the microwave until it has melted slightly and is runny. (Alternatively, warm it in a heatproof bowl or saucepan on top of a double boiler with water simmering in the bottom pot.) Make sure the sauce does not get too warm, or it will be too thin to coat the cake. Pour the sauce over the cake and then decorate the cake with chopped chocolate and raspberries.
