Basically a stack of crepes is made and layered with some sort of filling, and this past week that filling has been dulce de leche.
I made one on Sunday morning with some larger crepes in about eight layers for a late Rascal Breakfast. Old Rascal was home from University and was looking for lunch about an hour later... but you know, that's the way things go with Old Rascal and his "Empty Pit of Misery" stomach.
For a special treat for a single Rascal, or maybe two small ones, a smaller crepe cake can be easily made.
My younger daughter was home with a cold last week... here is the cheer-up breakfast I made for her.
1 cup of unbleached white flour
1 & 1/4 cups of milk
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl with a whisk and ladle, about a quarter cup at a time, into a non-stick pan for easy flipping. I use a knob of butter for the first crepe and replenish as needed.
For a larger crepe cake I double the recipe, it's so easy. I'm planning to cook up another crepe cake this weekend, this time layered with whipped cream and blueberry jam. While using whipped cream I'll make the crepes well ahead of time so they will be nicely chilled.
I hope you are having a great week Darling Tooties.
