Strawberry Mille Crêpe Cake

Still counting my blessings ... glad that I'm one year older and still surviving ... ^-^!
Made this Strawberry Mille Crêpe Cake for my birthday and a small 'tribute' for my blog turns 2-year old in January.



Recipe modified slightly from Milo Mille Crêpe cake
Strawberry Mille Crêpe Cake
Ingredients for Crepes:
(A)
250g cake flour - sift and set aside
50g caster sugar

(B)
2 eggs
30g melted unsalted butter
250ml milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Whipped cream filling:
350ml heavy whipping cream
25g caster sugar (2 tablespoons)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Strawberry (1 punnet 250g)
Some cooking oil for greasing the pan.

Method :
1) Combine and mix ingredients (A) in a clean bowl.

2) In another bowl, make ingredients  (B) : whisk eggs with a manual whisk and mix in the melted butter. Next, pour the milk in and continue to whisk till combined.

3) Add in (B) to (A) mixture and whisk till a smooth batter.

4) Heat the non-stick griddle or pan with low flame. I'm using a 20cm non-stick pan. Dap a little cooking oil with kitchen towel and lightly grease onto the non-stick griddle or pan.

5) Pour crêpe batter using a small soup ladle or big ice-cream scoop, swirl to cover the surface of the pan. Cook about 1 minute. Using a chopstick to tip the side, with your fingers, gently and carefully flip the crêpe over, continue to cook for about 30 seconds.
Remove the cooked crêpe. Repeat this process till finished the batter.

For the strawberries:
Reserve about 10 whole strawberries, cut each halves for decoration.
For the filling, hulled and slice each strawberry thinly into 4 slices vertically.
Pat dry with kitchen towel and aside in the refrigerator.

To make the whipped cream:
Freeze the cleaned mixing bowl for about 10 minutes.  Take it out from the freezer, immediately put all together the cold whipped cream, caster sugar and vanilla extract in the cold mixing bowl. Use the electronic mixer to whisk till stiff peaks form (about 4 - 5 minutes).

To assemble the crêpe cake:
Place one crêpe on a large plate or cake board.

With a small spatula, spread a thin layer of the whipped cream on the crêpe. Place about 6 - 7 slices of *strawberries. Spread another thin layer of whipped cream. Next, top with another crêpe and repeat the same process till finished the filling. For the final top layer, spread some whipped cream and decorate with some strawberries as you like.

Chill the crêpe cake for a few hours before cutting/consuming.

Dust the decorated strawberries with some icing sugar or snow powder  when serving. (optional).

*Note: 
I didn't fill every layer with strawberries. Filled the initial 4 layers and alternate the last 2 layers. Feel free to fill each layer with sliced strawberries but you'll need to add more quantity.

I ran out of all-purpose plain flour, replaced with cake flour.





Happy Birthday to me ^-^!
