Ingredients

For the crepes:

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter (¼ cup, 56 grams)
  • 1 ½ cups whole milk (375 ml)
  • 3 large eggs
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour (90 grams)
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar (50 grams)
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • Pinch of salt

For the strawberry whipped cream filling:

  • 2 cups fresh strawberries , thinly sliced and chopped (1 lb container)
  • cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • Additional strawberries for topping and decoration

Instructions

To make the crepes:

  • Melt the butter in a 9-inch stainless or nonstick skillet over medium low heat.
  • In a blender, combine the butter, milk, eggs, flour, sugar, vanilla, and salt until combined and no lumps remain, about 20-30 seconds.
  • Add 1/4 cup crepe batter while tiling the pan and swirl to coat the bottom of the pan as needed. Let cook for about 2 minutes minutes, until lightly browned, loosening the edges and center with a spatula as it cooks.
  •  Flip and cook on the other side for an additional minute. Flip out onto a plate and repeat with remaining batter.
  • Flip cooked crepe out onto a plate and repeat with remaining batter.

To make the strawberry whipped cream:

  • In a small bowl, use a fork to mash half of the strawberries with the sugar, vanilla and salt. Add remaining strawberries to the bowl and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  • Use an electric mixer to beat heavy whipping cream to about medium peaks. Set aside about 1½ of whipped cream for topping the crepe cake.
  • Add all the strawberry mixture (including the juices) to the remaining whipped cream in the bowl and gently fold together with a spatula.

To assemble the crepe cake:

  • Place one crepe on a plate or cake stand. Top with about ¼ cup of the strawberry whipped cream mixture. Layer will be very thin and that's okay!
  • Repeat with remaining crepes and strawberry whipped cream.
  • Top with reserved whipped cream and strawberries for decoration.
  • Serve immediately or let it chill in the fridge for 30 minutes to firm up a little. This crepe cake is best served within 24 hours of assembly.
NOTES:
  • The crepe batter can be made in advance and stored in the fridge for up to 24 hours. 
  • Whole milk is preferred, but 2% will work okay too.
  • This video helpfully demonstrates how to tilt and swirl the pan when adding batter.
