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.
Before building the cake layers, it’s important to think about what you want the cake to be served on. It will be easiest if you don’t have to transfer it. I built the cake on a cake circle cut into the exact same football shape as the cake. (View on Amazon)
