Strawberry Crepe Cake

Strawberry Crepe Cake

Ingredients

Crepes

23g unsalted butter melted

38g granulated sugar

3 eggs (about 55g each)

120g cake flour

360g milk

5g vanilla extract

Red food coloring

Whipped Cream

560g heavy cream

20g granulated sugar

2g salt

58g strawberry sauce

1 tbsp vanilla extract

Strawberry Sauce

250g fresh strawberries

60g granulated sugar

5g lemon juice

Filling

Strawberry sauce

Fresh strawberry slices

Notes: By cake flour, I mean low protein flour, which normally contains 7-9% protein (Mine is around 8%). Not self-rising flour.

Steps:

  1. Wash and chop the fresh strawberries into cubes. Mix well with sugar and lemon juice and let set in the fridge for 30 minutes. Pour the strawberries into a pot, mix and stir over medium-low heat until softened and thickened. Transfer into a clean bowl; cover it with plastic wrap and let set in the fridge to cool.
  2. In a bowl, mix well melted butter, sugar, eggs, cake flour, milk, and vanilla extract until well combined. Add in some red food coloring and mix well. Sift once or twice. Cover it with plastic wrap and let set in the fridge for 15 minutes.
  3. Grab a nonstick pan, no need to grease it, keep the heat low and warm the pan. Pour in a cup of batter, and gently move the pan around to let the batter spread evenly. Keep the heat low and let cook for about 1 minute or until you can easily peel off the crepe with the help of a spatula. Repeat the steps until you use up all the batter. Let the crepes cool down.
  4. While the crepes are cooling down, bring together heavy cream, sugar, salt and vanilla extract, use a hand mixer or a stand mixer, beat until stiff peaks form. Mix it with strawberry sauce.
  5. Assemble the crepe cake. It follows the order: a layer of crepe and a layer of cream filling. 2 layers of fresh strawberry slices and 2 layers of strawberry sauce in the middle and 1 layer of strawberry sauce on top. Let the crepe cake chill in the fridge for 30 minutes or let it set in the fridge to cool for 2 hours before slicing. Garnish it with fresh strawberries and with Christmas decoration.
