How to make vegan crepes..
Crepes are super simple to make and these vegan crepes are no exception. It just requires 6 ingredients that you blend together, fry in a pan. And finally brush with espresso and layer with a vegan mascarpone inspired cream.
It’s spectacular and a total crowd pleaser. You’ll love this recipe.
Begin by whisking the flours and sugar together, making sure there's no clumps to prevent there being any lumps in the batter.
Then pour in your plant based milk and oil, whisking vigorously again ensuring there's no lumps.
[TIP] Make sure your milk is at room temperature before adding to the batter to prevent any lumps of flour pockets forming.
Pour approx ⅓ cup of the batter onto a greased pan and cook for 3-4 mins on the first side and then a further minute on the second.
Once you've cooked up all the batter into crepes its time to make the..
Vegan Mascarpone Inspired Chantilly Cream
As a traditional tiramisu is composed of lady fingers dipped in coffee and smothered in mascarpone filling I had to create a vegan alternative for these crepes.
So for these crepes I developed a vegan mascarpone cream. You'll need to whip up some vegan double cream and icing sugar until a soft peak.[This is your Chantilly cream] Then add the vegan cream cheese and whisk again until it reaches a slightly thicker consistency.
We will be brushing on brewed coffee onto each crepe layer to infuse the coffee flavour into the crepes. Then you want to layer on the mascarpone inspired filling. And keep doing this until you reach the last crepe. Please make sure to keep the last crepe bare as we will be spreading the vegan ganache on top.
Vegan Chocolate Ganache
Ganache is a fancy term for double cream and chocolate combined. To make it you simply need to heat equal parts of vegan chocolate and cream in a microwave for 30sec intervals until melted. Stir, until it becomes thick and glossy.
Perfect, now it's time to spread it across the top of the last crepe. You can go a little crazy with the top if you like, make the ganache drip down the sides, sprinkle with some chocolate shavings to create a boarder, or go simple like what I did.
With the back of a spoon or pallet knife slightly press down on the ganache as you create a swirl around. To create a rustic neat finish.
All thats left is to slice and enjoy!
