Vanilla Crepe Cake, Anyone?




Good morning, ladies! Today just happens to be Round No. 2 of Miss S in the Kitchen (lucky you).
I'm going to be sharing yet another delicious recipe: Vanilla Crepe Cake.
What's a crepe cake, you ask? Only layers and layers of fluffy vanilla crepes and creme!
And if you like crepes and cream, then you'll love this recipe, I promise.

I'll have to warn you first that this is not an instant cake, as it requires overnight setting.
However, it's well worth the wait!


Here's how you'll make the batter:
Combine 2 c. flour, 3 c. milk, 4 eggs, 2 tbsp. oil, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1 tbsp. vanilla in a bowl.


Beat until blended. Heat a lightly-greased skillet. Spoon in about 2 tbsp. batter per crepe.



Cook and flip until both sides are just cooked (slightly browned and dry around the edges).




Invert your crepe onto wax paper. Repeat, layering wax and crepes. 
This should make 16 to 18 crepes.

As you wait for your crepes to cool, whip together (to soft peaks) the following:
1 quart of whipping cream with 2 c. powdered sugar, 1 tbsp vanilla, and a pinch of salt.
(Refrigerate cream if the crepes are not yet cool.)

Once the crepes have reached room temperature, pull out your handy springform pan.
Now, grab your spatula, crepes, and cream. Put a crepe at the bottom of the pan.
With your spatula, spread some whipped cream on that French pancake. Repeat.
Place your last crepe neatly on top, cover the pan, and refrigerate.

Let set overnight in the refrigerator.

When you're ready to eat (and you'll be ready to eat!), simply pop off the sides of the pan.
Place on your prettiest cake pedestal and photograph your accomplishment. 



Cut as you would any old cake (but this is not just any old cake).


Serve with strawberries, chocolate, more whipped cream...

I happen to think that caramel, any kind of berries or fruit sauce, pecan praline sauce, or cinnamon-sugar would also be delicious with this cake. (Basically, all of the standard dessert toppings would be yummy...)




Isn't she lovely?





Miss H loves cake!


And so, I hope, will you!


Thank you for allowing me to share this with you!

Thanks to all who made this cake possible!

  10. That looks extraordinary! I love that it needs to sit overnight in the fridge, because by the time I'm done with cooking something that labor-intensive I'm usually too tired to think about eating it. (Oh, who am I kidding. I can ALWAYS eat!) Looking forward to trying this. Thank you for sharing!

  20. Hey Everyone! :)

    I’m currently challenging crafty people to share one of their projects to help people "who think they can’t craft"! Go on my blog for mor informations!!

    And if you’d like to share a project, it would be GREAT!
    It doesn't have to be a new project, it can just be an old one.
    It just have to be easy, and cheap:)

    Craftily :)

  22. 1 - This looks pretty much like sin on a plate (and I happen to like sin). 2 - How have we not "met" before? I live in Greer!!! I saw you post on The Blooming Hydrangea's facebook page and had to check you out. Following you now!

  23. Hm. What might happen if I cook the crepes a *wee* bit longer than suggested? I think I might like them a bit crispy.

  24. Okay, can I just say Yum! this was fantastic, easy to do and it turned out really well though my husband ate a large portion of it. It was just as delirious tasty as it looked, and we used caramel sauce as well, but had absolutely no complaints.
