Crêpe Terrine

Based on Chow’s crêpe terrine.

Ingredients

Crêpe

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tbsp vanilla sugar (you can substitute with normal sugar plus a teaspoon of vanilla extract)
  • 300 g / 11 oz (2 3/4 cups) plain (all-purpose) flour
  • 200 ml (7 oz) of water
  • 400 ml / 14 fl oz (1 3/4 cups) milk
  • 25 g / 1 oz (2 tablespoons) butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon sunflower oil

Sauce

  • 200 g / 7 oz milk chocolate, broken into pieces
  • 100 ml / 3 1/2 fl oz (scant 1/2 cup) double (heavy) cream
  • 20 g / 3/4 oz (1 1/2 tablespoons) butter
  • Pinch of ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of ground ginger

Directions

Batter

  • Dump eggs in a blender, blend well.
  • Then add the vanilla sugar and flour, milk and water, blend till smooth.
  • Finally, blend in on low the melted butter and the sunflower oil.
  • leave for at least 30 min, so do the chocolate sauce now. This is to get the air bubbles out.

Sauce

  • To make the chocolate sauce, put the chocolate, cream, butter, cinnamon and ginger into a heatproof bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water.
  • Heat, stirring occasionally, until the chocolate has melted and the mixture has blended together. Keep warm.

Assembly

  • Cook the crêpes in a non-stick pan (skillet), making sure that they are very thin. The diameter should be about 6 in.
  • Set aside in a warm place.
  • When they are all cooked, brush them with the chocolate mixture and stack them on top of each other. Serve warm or leave in fridge until it’s all hardened.

Note

  • You can use other kinds of crêpes
