My brother in law and his daughter came over for dinner last Wednesday evening. I made bake chicken thighs, rice and steamed broccoli for dinner.
I was thinking to make something for dessert for everybody. I had cake mix in my pantry but I didn't want to make a cake. I was thinking of something simple and easy, so I came out with this idea to make layered crepes. I had frozen strawberries which I used to make strawberry syrup to drizzle on top of the crepes. This was an easy recipe and it took me only about 20 minutes to make about 15-20 layers.
Everyone loved our dessert !!
2/3 cup flour
1 cup water
1 pinch salt
1 1/2 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 container cool whipped cream
1. In a big bowl combine eggs, milk, flour, salt and oil. Whisk until smooth. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour. I use it in about 30 minutes. And the result is just fine.
2. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and brush with oil. Pour 1/3 cup of crepe batter into pan, tilting to completely coat the surface of the pan. Cook 2 to 5 minutes, turning once, until golden. Repeat with remaining batter.
Strawberry Syrup :
1/2 sugar or more if you like sweet
1/2 tea spoon vanilla extra
2/3 cup water
In a sauce pan combine all of the ingredients and cook it on high heat until it boils. After it comes to a boil simmer it on low heat until the water deglazed and thickened.
Assemble the layers using a flat dish or cake plate and take the crepe and filled with cool whipped cream not to thick. Repeat the steps until you use all the 20 crepes and put it in fridge for about 2 hours or overnight so the whipped cream become firm.
Serve with remaining cool whipped cream on top and drizzle with strawberry syrup !! Yum !!
