Milo Mille Crêpe Cake

Milo ... I loved drinking Milo when I was a kid and my late mom used to tell us that "Milo is an expensive powder imported from overseas" ... hee ... hee ! But as I grew older and into adulthood,  .... I don't really fancy Milo anymore as preferred coffee/tea for my beverages.  But my kids love the ice Milo ... the ones from McDonald's that comes with a kid's meal.

I've not used Milo in cooking, baking or making dessert ... but I think it should taste good if add some Milo in pancakes or crêpe etc.  So here's sharing my first attempt in making Mille Crêpe ...or rather Milo Mille Crêpe Cake.  Indeed this chilled cake tasted deliciously good ... yummy !

Not so "graceful" looking Milo Mille Crêpe Cake as I didn't have enough of whipped cream to frost the whole cake :(  But I kinda like this "rustic" look ... lol

Recipe source : Eugenie Kitchen
Below my slightly modified version, adjusted the quantities of ingredients and replaced the cocoa powder with Milo. Sprinkle some Milo on each Crêpe with whipped cream.

Milo Mille Crêpe Cake
Ingredients :
230g all-purpose plain flour - sift and set aside
2 tablespoons Milo powder
50g caster sugar

2 eggs
30g melted unsalted butter
220ml milk

Whipped cream filling:
350ml heavy whipping cream
25g caster sugar (2 tablespoons)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

About 100g to 140g of Milo to sprinkle on Crêpe (adjust the amount to your preference).

Method :
1) Combine and mix ingredients (A) in a clean bowl.

2) In another bowl, make ingredients  (B) : whisk eggs with a manual whisk and mix in the melted butter. Next, pour the milk in and continue to whisk till combined.

3) Add in (A) to (B) mixture and whisk till a smooth batter.

4) Heat the non-stick griddle or pan with low flame. Grease with a little cooking oil.

5) Pour crêpe batter using a small soup ladle or ice-cream scoop, swirl to cover the surface of the pan. Cook about 1 minute.  Using a chopstick to tip the side, with your fingers, gently and carefully flip the crêpe over, continue to cook for about 30 seconds.

Remove the cooked crêpe. Repeat this process till finished the batter.

To make the whipped cream:
Freeze the cleaned mixing bowl for about 10 minutes.  Take it out from the freezer, immediately put all together the cold whipped cream and caster sugar in the cold mixing bowl. Use the electronic mixer to whisk till stiff peaks form (about 4 - 5 minutes).

To assemble the crêpe cake:
Place one crêpe on a large plate or cake board.
With a small spatula, spread a thin layer of the whipped cream on the crêpe. (Think I'm too generous in spreading the whipped cream so thick instead of  a "thin layer" ...)

Sprinkle some Milo powder (about 1 tablespoon) on each crêpe spread with whipped cream. Next, top with another crêpe and repeat the same process till finished the filling.

Decorate the top with some berries and dust a little Milo.
Refrigerate the cake for more than 10 hours or overnight before serving.

Yeah ! call this Milo overloaded ? We loved this Milo Mille Crêpe Cake very much cos it was gone within a day ... served as our brekkie, after meal dessert and afternoon snack  ... or shall I call it a "Milo Day" ... lol ! After a day of "sinful indulgence" .... my girl and I looked at each other ... let's go jogging ! ha ha ! ...

Have a sweet week ahead !
