Chef John's Strawberry Crepe Cake
What better way to enjoy crepes than in cake form? Stacking individual crepes together with a light strawberry mascarpone cream results in a dazzling no-bake cake that's so much greater than the sum of its parts. No matter what kind of frosting you choose, this simple method works on so many levels. Start off by blending up a classic crepe batter. For the filling you'll whip heavy cream with tangy mascarpone and heat up strawberry jam with a splash of water. It does take some time to make and stack all the crepes - Chef John ends up with about 18 - but once you get rolling, it goes pretty quickly. Let it chill completely for the most breathtaking results. And superior texture. Get the recipe for Chef John’s Strawberry Crepe Cake.
