Crepe Cake with custard creme

¬†Yes-yes! It’s blini again! I was eating lots of crepes last two weeks, seems I need to stop. ūüėÄ But this is the¬†whole cake!¬†Believe¬†me, you need to try it once to be obsessed forever! ūüėČ Just few days back I was watching one video and Russian confectioner made sweet blini-cake, it was a sign to make it and of course to try new recipe of blini. It turned out to be easy to make, but get ready to prepare a lots of blini! Despite the fact that I used too wide pan and the stack wasn’t high as much as I wanted,¬†blini turned out thin, tender and very tasty.Blini Cake with custard cream

¬†I decided to make custard cream (the confectioner made another cream), which is not very sweet and buttery. The¬†quantity¬†of the cream was more than enough for my cake, so I spread it on each crepe and put the cake in the fridge to set. Impatiently, I sliced into the cake, bite it and was surprised, the crepes absorbed almost all the cream. There was only the one way out – to eat it with sweet condensed milk on side. ūüėÄ So, next time I will make double¬†quantity¬†of the cream.Crepe Cake
