3 ¼

2 ¼
cups all-purpose flour
Gel food colouring
Tbsp butter, melted
cups heavy cream
cup icing sugar, plus extra for dusting

Rest time: 3 hours. For a completely flat top, halfway through chilling the cake, invert it onto a flat dish. Invert it back when ready to serve.

Step 1

For the crepes, in a blender, mix together the eggs, milk, oil, salt and sugar. Add the flour and pulse until just combined. Chill in fridge for at least 1 hour or overnight.

Step 2

Divide the crepe batter into 6 bowls/cups, mix in the gel food colouring to your desired pigment.

Step 3

Heat a 9-inch non-stick frying or crepe pan over medium-low heat. Brush lightly with melted butter, pour in ¼ cup of batter at a time, swirling the batter around to cover the pan with one thin layer. Cook for about 45 seconds. Flip and cook for another 30 seconds. Transfer to a tea towel to cool. Continue until you’ve cooked all the crepes. Set crepes aside to cool completely.

Step 4

For the filling, in the bowl of a stand mixer or with a hand mixer, whip together the cream, icing sugar and vanilla until medium peaks, making sure not to over-whip.

Step 5

Divide the whipped cream in half and fold in your favourite jam into one half.

Step 6

To assemble, layer the crepe cake on the dish you’ll be serving it on. Start with one crepe, spread on about 2 tablespoons of the whipped cream, layer another crepe on top, again with the cream (alternating between the plain and jam-flavoured cream) until you’ve used up all the crepes.
