Coconut whipped cream

    Instructions

    Preparing the batter

    • Mix all the dry ingredients together in one bowl.
    • Mix all the wet ingredients in another bowl.
    • Make a dome in the middle of the dry ingredients bowl and pour the contents of the wet ingredients one.
    • Mix all together with a whisker. Set aside in the fridge for 1h.

    Coconut whipped cream

    • Leave the cans of coconut milk in the fridge overnight.
    • Spoon the thick cream on top of the cans and put it in a mason jar.
    • Add the agave or maple syrup and vanilla sugar. Close the jar.
    • Shake well for 3-5 minutes and leave in the fridge while you make the crêpes.

    Making the crêpes

    • The batter will be thicker after one hour, don't hesitate adding more milk or water if it is too thick. It needs to be more on the liquid side.
    • In a non-stick crêpe pan, add a bit of batter and make 12 individual small crêpes. Around 12cm diameter.
    • Make a bigger crêpe, around 20-24 cm to use as a base.
    • Cut two lines of baking paper and arrange them in a cross. In the middle, put the larger crêpe (the base). I'd recommend waiting 5-10 minutes so that the crêpes are colder and less warm.
    • Add some whipped cream all over the crêpe. Cover in the middle with a smaller one. Add whipped cream. Then top with another crêpe. Repeat this process till the last crêpe.
    • Hold the ends of the paper cross and put the mille crêpe cake into a bowl lined with plastic wrap. Wrap tightly the plastic wrap in the middle (you can use some clothing tweezers to help you tighten it in the middle.
    • Leave to rest in the fridge for 2h at least.
    • After 2 hours, take the cake out of the fridge. flipt it aside and remove the baking paper & plastic wrap.
    • With the help of a seave, powder some matcha on top to decorate the cake. Cut slices and enjoy the cake!
    • Optional: You can decorate it with some fruits/edible flowers.
