Instructions
Crepes
  1. Beat the wet ingredients until integrated. Sift the dry ingredients and mix well, taking care that there are no lumps. Let the mixture rest for 15 minutes.

  2. Heat a nonstick pan (20cm in diameter approx.) Over medium heat. Add 1 Tbsp of neutral flavor oil or butter and spread well over the entire surface. Take 1/4 cup (50-60ml) of the mixture and spread it over the pan so that there is an even layer of clean edges.

  3. Cook the crepes for 1 minute and half, turn and cook for another minute. Transfer the crepe to a plate and cover with a towel. Repeat until all the mixture is finished (go stacking and covering the crepes as they come out from the pan). Let cool stacked and covered.

Filling

  2. Assemble the cake. Crepe, 2 generous Tbsp of chocolate cream, and repeat until finished with all the crepes.

  3. Chop the chocolate from the bath, and melt together with the cream. Bath the cake
