an amazing recipes. I love her blog.


Ingredients

Crepes

2 cups of milk
3/4 cup water
4 eggs
5 tablespoons butter melted
3 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups of all purpose flour
1 teaspoon butter or oil to
grease the skillet for the crepes
(I use a non stick skillet)

Filling

2 batches of pastry cream
recipe below
300 grams of raspberries to garnish
white chocolate shavings to garnish
the cake or powdered sugar






Method

I think is better made the pastry cream ahead of time but it can be done either way.

Make the crepe batter by mixing all the ingredients in a blender.

 Chill the crepe batter at least for 1 hour. 
 Heat a nonsticl skillet over medium high heat.
Brush with a little bit of butter or oil using a paper towel to distribute
and even amount over the skillet.
When is hot pour in some crepe batter (a  little more than half of a 1/4 measuring cup for and 8 inch skillet) and distributing the batter evenly over the surface of the skillet.
Flip the crepe over when the edges are slightly dry about 1 min on the first side and 30 seconds in the second.
You have tosee because when the skillet is hot is more fast.
Repeat with all the batter putting the crepes on a round dinner plate and covering with aluminium foil while you are cooking the next crepe.
Cool the crepes. 

Assemble the cake by placing a crepe on a plate or cake stand .
Scoop out pastry cream and spread it out all over the surface of the crepe
Repeat with all the crepes and pastry cream.
Chill the cakes for at least an hour since the pastry cream needs to set.
Garnish with fresh raspberries or any other berries fruit chocolate shavings.

  20. Gloria is the baking Queen
    Her glorious desserts I can taste through the screen
    Every picture looks delicious
    Sweet and moist and even nutritious

    Look at the crepes for instance today
    Strewn with raspberries – what a display
    Each mouthful so tasty and good
    This is definitely my favourite food

    Today is her birthday so let’s all sing
    “Happy Birthday” while we dance a fling
    She deserves so many lovely cakes
    But I'm glad it’s her and not me who bakes!

    Happy Birthday, sweet Gloria!! xox <3

  49. Felicidades GLORIAAAAAAAAA!! Los más dulces deseos para ti.

    Oye, justo estaba buscando una receta de torta de crepes. Me encanta esto de que sean así de sencillas (de hecho crepes apilados) y me tincan demasiado ricas... Estaba pensando en hacer una con crema de avellana del libro Smitten Kitchen.

    La tuya se ve genial, great inspiration!

    Sldos!!
