7 layer dips are incredibly popular appetizers at football parties. So, why bring an ordinary dip as a Super Bowl appetizer when you can bring one that will wow football (and food) fans? You see, this seven layer dip is a crepe cake!
You won’t need chips for this special Super Bowl 7 layer dip crepe cake. Each of the seven layers of dip in this appetizer is separated by a savory cornmeal crepe (to get the corn chip flavor).
Slice off a piece for the ultimate 7 layer dip experience.
How to Make Super Bowl Seven Layer Dip Crepe Cake
Making this crepe cake isn’t that time-consuming, as most of the ingredients can be store-bought.
The crepes are the only component that you should spend the time to make yourself, but in a pinch, you could substitute corn tortillas and cut them to the correct football shape.
I used the cornmeal crepe recipe from Serious Eats to make the crepes.
You can use a special crepe pan for crepe making, but I prepare mine in a cast iron griddle. The crepe recipe yielded about seven cornmeal crepes. Because you’ll need exactly seven crepes to make the cake, I suggest doubling the recipe to give you some wiggle room. The extra crepes work great as shells for enchiladas or even for a savory egg and cheese breakfast crepe.
