Strawberry Mousse Crepe Cake



1 ½ cups milk

1 cup all-purpose flour

2 large eggs

4 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted, divided

2 Tbsp granulated sugar

1/4 Tbsp salt


2 cups strawberries

1⁄2 cup sugar

1⁄8 tsp salt

3/4 cup heavy cream


1 lb strawberries

1 tsp fresh lemon juice

1 cup powdered sugar


To make the crepes, in a blender, combine the milk, flour, eggs, 3 tablespoons butter, sugar, and salt and blend until smooth.

Heat a 10” nonstick frying pan over medium heat. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon butter and swirl to grease the bottom of the pan. Using a 1/4 cup measure, pour batter into the center of the pan. Immediately tilt the pan in a circular motion to coat the entire bottom of the pan with the batter. Cook about 1 minute. Flip the crepe and cook about 30 seconds longer. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with the remaining batter. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.

To make the mousse, in a food processor with the blade attachment, add the strawberries, sugar, and salt and puree until smooth. Pour through a fine-mesh sieve to remove the seeds. Beat the cream until stiff peaks form. Fold into strawberry mixture. Chill until serving time.

To make the coulis, in a saucepan over medium heat, add the berries, lemon juice and powdered sugar. Cook until strawberries are broken down and reduced, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and strain through a fine-mesh sieve.

Place 1 crepe on a serving platter. Spread a dollop of strawberry mousse. Place another crepe on top of the mousse. Repeat with the remainder of the crepes and mousse. Drizzle strawberry coulis over the cake, slice and serve.
