Chocolate Crepe Cake

Ingredients:
2 cups all-purpose flour
3-4 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
4-5 tbsp sugar
2 cups milk
2 tsp vanilla essence
3 eggs
2 tbsp oil or belted butter

Filling: any of the below
1 cup cream + 4 tbsp castor sugar whipped
¾ cup nutella (warmed little bit in microwave)
½ cup whipped cream + 4 tbsp cream cheese + 3 tbsp castor sugar whipped (I used this)
½ cup butter + 1 ½ cups icing sugar mixed

Method:
In a blender add milk, eggs and vanilla and blend to mix.
Add rest of ingredients and mix slightly with a spoon.
Now blend to mix and keep aside for 15 mins.
Number of crepes depends on the size of the pan. Medium size pan will yield approx. 20 crepes.
Heat a non-stick pan. Add approx. ¼ cup of batter and swirl around. The first crepe will give you an idea on how much batter is required for each crepe.
When the crepe is cooked and sides dry up, slide to a plate. No need to turn and cook the other side.
Repeat with rest of batter. Don’t stack the hot crepes.
When completely cool, place one crepe on the serving dish.
Use any of the filling and spread a thin layer.

Keep repeating till all layers are complete.
Place the last crepe upside down to get a smooth finish.
Either spread the filling or dust with icing sugar just before serving.
Can make ahead and refrigerate.
Bring to room temperature before serving.
Slice and serve!
