Ferrero crepe cake

Every year for my sons birthday, I would make Nutella crepes for breakfast. Yesterday was his 18th birthday, and he is entering the world of adults. As every mom, I am very emotional, and I could tell you story after story about him as a baby, toddler, and a teenager. I could tell you that he was cutest and most precious baby. But every mom would say that. So, I will not talk much, I will take you straight to the recipe.
This one was made just for him, with Ferrero like cream, and chocolate crepes. Its very rich and flavorful. Mascarpone cheese, Nutella, and roasted hazelnuts. Dig in :)



Chocolate crepes - Pierre Herme's recipe
190 gr. flour
7 tablespoons cocoa powder
3 tablespoons sugar
4 eggs room temperature
500 ml milk
6 tablespoons beer
4 tablespoons melted unsalted butter
Sift the flour and cocao powder together. Whisk in the sugar. In another bowl, whisk eggs and milk together just to blend. Whisk in the beer, and melted butter.
Pour the liquid ingredients into the bowl with your dry ingredients and whisk to blend well. You will have a very tin bather. You can also make it in a blender of food processor. Do not overmix. Refrigerate overnight.
Rub a seasoned or nonstick 19cm pan and put it over medium-high heat. As soon as pan is hot, pour in about 3 tablespoons of batter, and swirl the pan so batter spreads across it in an even, thin-as-possible-ever layer.
When the batter has set, run a knife or spatula around the edges, and flip it. Cook until other side is lightly browned.
I made double doze of batter, so I had about 24 crepes.




For the filling:
(recipe inspired by Una's Ferrero cake)

350 gr nutella
450 gr mascarpone cheese
150 gr. roasted peeled hazelnuts
1 tablespoon hazelnut liqueur (optional)

First roast and peel your hazelnuts. Heat the oven to 350F/180C.
Put your hazelnuts in one layer on the baking pan, and roast them for about 10 min, until they are blistery. Take them out, transfer them to the kitchen towel ( chose old or dark, because it will stain your kitchen towel). Close the towel up into a bundle, and rub energetically until their skin comes off in flakes. Processes them in food processor.
Mix room temperature mascarpone cheese with nutella. You don't need mixer, just do it with spatula. Add processed  hazelnuts and hazelnut liqueur (if you don't have it, plain old vanilla is fine)

Put one tablespoon of filling on each crepe, and spread evenly. Layer the cake until you use up all of the ingredients. Decorate with grated chocolate, and chocolate whipped cream.



For the chocolate cream you will need:
250 ml heavy cream
50 gr chocolate
1 tablespoon sugar
Heat the cream and sugar until boil. Pour it over the chocolate, let it melt for a few minutes, and mix energetically, so the chocolate is completely blended into the cream.
Chill the chocolate cream for few hours. Whip the cream with a whisk until it is almost firm. Be careful not to over-whip. Decorate the cake and sprinkle with chocolate curls.

  4. Ranije sam nekako podcenjivala te torte od palačinki, a onda sam jednom pravila Lanine Krem palačinke i skros se oduševila. Sad imam odabranih 10ak recepata za isprobavanje ali nikako da dođu na red. Divna torta, a sinu srećan rođendan od srca! Ne mogu verovati da ti imaš tako veliko sina. :) Ja sam mislila da si ti malo starija od mene... :)

      Nisam do sad pravila torte od palacinki, ali ovo je ispalo vise nego dobro.
      Zaglavlje mozda nije najbolje idejno resenje, ali ja sam preponosna na njih, pa nisam odolela.

      Nama je ovo prva, ja sam nekako bila sumnjicava prema palacinkastim tortama.
      Ali, sa nutelom i lesnicima nije moglo da bude lose.

  12. Čestitam sinu rodjendan, i želim mu dobrodošlicu u svet odraslih, znam koliko to njima znači jer sam prošla to pre tri godine sa svojim sinom;). Obe smo sinove dobile u istim godinama, ni ja nisam imala 21 kad sam ga dobila, ali zato smo sad mlade mame i šta nas briga ;)
    Torta je fantastična, i mom nutelaljupcu bi se sigurno dopala!

  16. Najgora sam od sve dece, jer poslednja stižem... Torticu sam onomad videla, ali me je presek danas "izuo iz cipela"! Toliko finih, čokoladnih listića i isto toliko slojeva kreme... samo mogu da kažem mrak!
    Raši želim srećno i veselo sve dalje što mu se kao punoletnom bude dešavalo, a tebi da se ponosiš i dalje svojim prvencem! Ljuuuuuuuuubim! :*

  18. Jao, kako ja ovde nisam pozelela srecan rodjendan tvojoj momcini? Sram me bilo. Znam da sam po FB nesto komentarisala, ako me pamcenje sluzi. Za svaki slucaj, da ponovim - Srecan mu/vam rođendan i punoletstvo! Sve najbolje na putu ka (ne)zrelosti. Ja što starija, to ludja... (mada ovo može biti samo u mom slučaju). Torta - pun pogodak! Čista kreativnost i dekadencija (daj još ovog drugog:)). Puno toplih pozdrava!
