Strawberry Crepe Cake Recipe

Strawberry Crepe Cake Recipe
Crepes are very versatile; they can be rolled around both sweet and savory fillings, or they can be stacked with fillings in between the stacks. They can be served for breakfast or brunch filled with cream and fresh fruit, as a main dish filled and covered with sauce, or as a dessert – the most famous being the French classic, Crepes Suzette, where they are folded into quarters, covered in an orange butter sauce, and flambéed before serving. Homemade crepes are the best, of course, but they can be a bit time consuming, and take a little practice. Luckily, if you don't have the time or patience to make your own, they are readily available at most larger grocery stores, usually in the produce department near the fresh berries. Crepes, either homemade or store bought, are used in the following showstopper dessert, Strawberry Crepe Cake, which looks very fancy and complicated, but is actually quite easy.

Even though there are three components – crepes, strawberry sauce, and whipped cream – they are all quick to make, and the final assembly takes about 10 minutes. If it's more convenient, Strawberry Crepe Cake can be made a day ahead, which is just enough time for the flavors to blend.
