Hi guys, how is your Wednesday treating you so far? I love when the Monday’s are off so many things get done, like this beautiful and delicious Crepe cake – my husband’s favorite, I made it on Monday, and we have only one slice left! The cake is very delicious and light, looks very nice as well.
The cake is easy to make, here are the ingredients for the Crepes probably later I will make a video on “How to make Crepes”:
- 1 1/2 cup of flour
- 3 eggs
- 420 ml 2% fat milk
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- 2 tbsp canola oil
- 1/2 tbsp sea salt
- 5 tbsp of powdered sugar (depends how sweet you want the crepes)
- 1 1/2 can of Sophie’s sour cherries
In a bowl combine the eggs and the sugar, when incorporated add the vanilla and the sea salt. Add the flour and mix with a hand mixer until a paste forms, add the milk little by little and mix, add the oil. It is very important to use a good non stick pan, I use Ogreenic and it works amazing, no oil is needed for greasing. The pan has to be very hot, cook the crepes on medium.
To flip the crepe I use a small wood stick to get one edge and turn it on the other side using my fingers.
After the crepes are done cover them with a towel and let them cool, prepare the cream by mixing:
- 2 cups creme de frache or sour cream, I used sour cream
- 1 cup powdered sugar
Put it in the fridge for at least 15 minutes.
For the filling I use pitted sour cherries, at home we make our own, here I use Sophie’s Sour Cherries, they are really good. Following the steps in the below pictures roll your crepes for the cake in a “tube” form, and layer them in a glass dish, each layer is covered by cream.
So for the first layer I used 6 crepes, for the second 5 crepes and for the third 4 crepes. The cake can be decorated with cocoa powder and I usually grate some chocolate on top, but I didn’t have any on hand this time. As I said before this cake is delicious, and very beautiful when you cut it you can see all the tubes filled with cherries. The cream is sweet, the crepes are silky and smooth and the sour cherries add the right tartness, you will go back for seconds, believe me!
I hope you give it a try! Enjoy, Catalina!
