INGREDIENTS:

Servings 8–10

Cr​êp​es

21⁄2 cups flour

3⁄4 cup sugar

3⁄4 teaspoon salt

5 eggs

11⁄4 cup milk

13⁄4 cup water

5 tablespoons butter, melted

Berry Syrup

4 cups mixed berries 3⁄4 cup sugar

1 cup water

1⁄4 cup lemon juice Zest of 1 lemon

Whipped Cream

3 cups heavy cream 3 tablespoons sugar

PREPARATION:

1. First make the berry syrup by placing all of the ingredients except water into a saucepan and roughly smashing them together with a potato masher. Then add water and bring to a boil. Simmer for 10 minutes.

2. Strain syrup into a bowl and place in the refrigerator until completely chilled.

3. While syrup cools, make cr​ê​pes by first whisking together all of the dry ingredients in a bowl.

4. In a blender, blend up all the wet ingredients until mixed. Add the dry ingredients into the blender 1⁄3 of the batch at a time, blending in between until mix is incorporated and completely smooth.

5. Heat an 8-inch non-stick pan on medium and then lightly spray with oil. Pour 1⁄4 cup of the cr​êp​e batter into the pan and quickly swirl pan so that the batter covers the bottom evenly.

6. Cook for one or two minutes until the edges of the cr​ê​pe brown slightly and the middle of the cr​êp​e is set. Using a spatula, lift the corner of the cr​ê​pe and carefully flip the cr​ê​pe over. Cook for 30 seconds, then remove the cr​ê​pe from the pan and set aside.

7. Repeat with all of the mix until you have 20–25 round cr​ê​pes. Set aside to cool.

8. Next, add 3⁄4 cup of cooled berry syrup and 3 cups of whipped cream to a very large bowl. Using a blender, whip until soft peaks are formed. Add sugar and continue to whip until there are stiff peaks.

9. Fold in 1⁄4 cup of the berry syrup, incorporating it as much or as little as you like.

10. To build the cake place a cr​ê​pe on a cake stand and add 3–4 tablespoons of the berry whipped cream, spreading evenly to cover the cr​ê​pe. Then, place another one on top and cover again with berry whipped cream. Repeat layers with the remaining cr​ê​pes.

11. Top with a last layer of whipped cream, then top with fresh berries and a drizzle of the extra berry syrup.

12. Enjoy!
