4

1 cup (150g) plain flour
1 1/2 cups
(375ml) milk
2 tbs caster sugar
2 tsp vanilla bean paste
Melted
butter, to grease

200g dark

1/3 cup (80ml) thin cream
1/4 cup (60ml)

2 tbs coffee liqueur
2 tbs brown sugar

  1. Combine the eggs and flour in a medium bowl. Gradually add milk,
    while continually stirring, until well combined and mixture is smooth.
    Add sugar and vanilla and stir to combine. Set aside for 30 minutes to
    rest.
  2. Heat a 15cm non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Brush with melted

    minute or until lightly golden and just set. Use a spatula to turn and
    cook for a further 30 seconds or until golden. Transfer to a plate.
    Repeat with remaining batter, reheating and greasing pan between
    batches.
  3. To make filling, place chocolate, cream and coffee in a heatproof
    bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Use a metal spoon to stir for 5
    minutes or until chocolate melts and mixture is smooth. Remove from
    heat; cover with plastic wrap. Place in the fridge, stirring
    occasionally, for 30 minutes or until mixture cools and thickens.
  4. Line a 20cm springform pan with plastic wrap. Place a crêpe in the
    pan. Spread with a little fi ling. Continue layering with crêpes and
    filling, finishing with a crêpe. Cover with plastic wrap and place in
    the fridge for 3 hours or until chilled and set.
  5. To make the mocha sauce, combine the chocolate, cream, coffee,
    liqueur and sugar in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering
    water. Stir for 5 minutes or until sauce is smooth.
  6. Turn the cake onto a clean surface. Use a sharp knife to cut into
    wedges. Place on serving plates and drizzle with hot sauce.
