Milo Crepes

  • Beat the eggs until combined and add vanilla extract.
  • Pour in the Milo drink, melted butter, and mix well.
  • In 3 portions mix in your flour mixture.
  • If you have a mixer, use your mixture at low speed.
  • I had a couple of lumps so I strained it to make sure that the batter was smooth.
  • Then pour it into an airtight container and chill for at least 8 hours.
  • This is for the gluten to work its magic.
  • When you are ready, heat 8 inches non-stick pan on med to med high heat.
  • Brush on some butter.
  • I used a small ladle to pour my batter... It was slightly lesser than 1/4 cup.
  • Swirl it around the pan.
  • Let it cook for a min until the sides starts to crisp up and the center appears bubbling.
  • Flip it out on a cooling rack.
  • It should fall off the pan nicely.
  • No need to cook the other side as it cooks through.
  • This was my set up.
  • I have another cooling rack on the right to flip out the very hot crepes.
  • Allowed it to cool while I cook the next, and transfer it to the stacks of crepes as shown when cool to touch.

Milo Crumbs

  • Preheat oven to 180C
  • Place all the dry ingredients in mixing bowl
  • Mix to combine
  • DrizzleĀ in the butter while beating, until until combined, and can be squeezed together into clumps
  • Spread mixture onto a lined baking tray and place in the oven for about 10 minutes
  • It burns easily, so do keep an eye on it
  • Cool completely and break into crumbs

Milo Sauce

  • In a saucepan, heat heavy cream till warm and slowly whisk in Milo power to dissolve.
  • Strain it to remove any lumps.

Milo Whipped Cream

  • In a clean mixing bowl, whip cream until almost double in volume.
  • Then add Milo powder tbsp at a time and continue whisking.
  • Until cream is stiff.

Assembly

  • Build the cake by placing the first crepe on the cake base.
  • Spread a thin even layer of cream on the top.
  • Then top with the next layer.
  • Repeat until all the crepes are used.
  • Chill for at least an hour for everything to set and come together before slicing into it.
  • Use a very sharp knife to slice the cake.
