Strawberry Mille Crepe Cake

Decadent. Elegant! This fancy looking Strawberry Crepe Cake is a light and delicious no bake cake. I was hoping to say that it was a delight to make but I practically screamed at my horrendous attempts at making crepes that were not too thick, burnt, holey, you name it! BUT it is totally doable once you get the hang of it. I tossed quite a few layers of crepe straight into my mouth but the cake was still quite tall. Do not fret too much, it still looks decent. Ps. you don’t need to have perfectly round crepes too as the ruffles give it character. The cake was fun to assemble and that made up for the rough start. I am a new fan of this millecrepe cake as its quite forgiving. It is capable of hiding plenty of imperfections 😉 I hope you will give this cake a shot in your own kitchen, its worth it. Mmmmm!

Crepe

400ml milk

2 eggs

1 cup all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons granulated sugar

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

2 tablespoons butter – melted

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Filling

1 cup double cream

2 tablespoons granulated sugar

400g strawberries

  • Heat the milk until warm. Combine the flour, sugar and baking powder. In a large mixing bowl, whisk the eggs and add half the milk. Whisk. Add the flour half at a time, whisking to fully incorporate. When batter is nearly smooth, add the rest of the milk and mix. Add melted butter and vanilla. Combine. Ours was not very lumpy so we did not sieve it. Set in fridge for 30 minutes.
  • Whilst waiting for the crepe batter, prepare the filling. Whip the cream with the sugar until it becomes thick. Prepare the strawberries. Slice them thin and as evenly as you can.
  • Heat a non stick pan to medium heat. (Ps. our first layer went in the bin! The heat must have been too high and it was burnt, whoops). Pour about 3 tablespoons of batter and swirl around until it makes a thin circle. Flip it over. Repeat with remaining batter. ( This is the most tedious process, but once you get the hang of it.. its fine) . Once they are cooled you can start ‘building’ your cake by layering the crepe layers.
  • To assemble the cake, on the first crepe, spread a thin layer of whipped cream and a layer of strawberries. Place another crepe on top and repeat until you think you have had enough haha.

When its all done, this Crepe Cake sure looks and taste impressive. Enjoy xxx
