Does anyone know the correct way to say "Crepe?" I was mistaken several times at work over the last week when people thought they heard I was making "crap." LOL! This creation I made was far from crap - that's for sure! Over the years, I've seen different Crepe Cake recipes on Completely Delicious via Pintrest. The concept was interesting to me, so I just had to try it. Pictured is a Lemon Mascarpone Crepe Cake. Yes, you need to use mascarpone and not cream cheese to get the creamy - not too rich - flavor. The cake is topped with candied lemon peels, and each layer is alternating with homemade lemon curd and the whipped mascarpone cream. This cake is dense, so don't think for a second that you will get a fluffy, moist, baked cake. BUT it makes for a fun breakfast. YOLO, right? Every week, these Saturday Bites' challenges surprise me when I discover how easy it is to make something I used to only see in bakeries or restaurants. Enjoy the recipe!
Crepes.. Oh so yummy..
So.. One very good piece of advice I can give about making crepes. Non-stick pan
Thankfully they tasted MUCH better then they looked.
I made a yummy dessert crepe. Okay.. Actually the crepe is mostly the same regardless of savory or sweet. I opted for sweet.
Blueberry lemon curd with fresh whipped cream and they were oh so yummy.

Hey look! I made a crepe! Cherry pie filling.
It’s been a crazy week, that’s all you’re getting from me this time. :)
This is kind of funny because a few weeks ago I was scanning one of my favorite cookbooks and found a crepe recipe that I had planned on trying at a later date. The time is now!
Sarah Leah Chase's Cold-Weather Cooking is one of my essential cookbooks. It was first published in 1990 and I'm not certain if it's still in print. I use it from around Labor Day through Easter. I have my stand by's such as Columbus Day pasta and her bacon guacamole. Ms. Chase was a well known caterer in New England (I believe), so presentation is important. However, I simplify some of the recipes by omitting some of the flourishes. As is the case with these crepes. I found it unnecessary to tie the crepes off with chives. I will share the recipe as it is written if you so desire the flourishes.
