Bake Along #14 : Strawberry Crêpe Cake

Gosh , I nearly miss Bake Along #14. December is really a busy month for me. Well, I am kind of proud of myself now that I was able to stay up late to make this cake. I am sorry to cut short my post this time , I really gotta go for now. Anyway , I have chosen to make a very "lazy" Strawberry Crêpe Cake cos I have opted to use store bought strawberry jam . Heehee.....

Ingredients 
French Crêpe Batter [ please refer to my previous post for recipe ]
Store Bought Strawberry Jam [ warm in microwave ]

Method 
For the Crêpe
  1. Mix flour, sugar, eggs, egg yolks, milk and unsalted butter into a blender or food processor until smooth . Then pour into a jug and let stand for 30 min. Just before cooking the crêpe , stir in 40g melted butter through the batter 
  2. Heat a 18cm non-stick pan or crêpe pan over medium-high heat. Brush the pan with extra melted butter . Add enough batter to coat the base of the pan , swirl to cover , tip out excess batter 
  3. Cook the crêpe for 45 sec then flip over to cook for another 30 seconds on the other side . Repeat with remaining batter to get 20 crêpe , stacking with baking paper in between. ( Crêpe can be made 2 days ahead , wrap in foil refrigerated )
To assemble 
  1. Lightly grease a 18cm springform pan. Place a crêpe in the springform pan and spread with a thin layer of filling ( do not be greedy to fill with too much filling as it will cause the cake to slip when eating ) 
  2. Continue layering with the rest of the crêpe , ending with a crêpe on top
  3. Cover the cake with an aluminium foil and chill for 1 hour 
  4. Pre-heat oven to 180C .Place cake on a baking tray and heat gently for 10 minutes 
  5. Remove from oven and leave to cool completely before frosting
  6. Decorate with fresh strawberry or any decoration of your choice . Drizzle strawberry syrup or warm strawberry jam when serving  . Enjoy your cake !!!
