Today’s post we are featuring a Fourth of July themed layered crepe cake.
I would describe this cake as fresh, light and just the right amount of sweetness.
To make the crepes we used a vintage Sunbeam electric M’sieur Crepe Maker. You can still find them places like Etsy, Offer-Up, eBay or Craigslist.
“Cucina” makes a crepe maker that work identically to the one we used and you can purchase it here on Amazon.
These electric crepe makers make the crepe making process super simple. you simply dip the pan in the batter and the heated pan cooks the crepe. It slides off the non-stick pan with ease.

Layered Crepe Cake

- 2 Tbsp butter melted and cooled
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup flour
- 4 Tbsp sugar
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 4 cups heavy whipping cream
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1/2 cup fresh blueberries washed and dried
- 5-6 lg whole strawberries, stems removed washed and dried
- 8-10 whole blackberries washed and dried
Melt, 2 Tbsp of butter and let cool. In a blender combine milk, eggs, flour, sugar, salt, vanilla and melted butter. Blend untill all ingredients are smooth.
COLORING THE BATTER:
Divide the batter in half, into two cups or bowls. Add 5 drops of blue food coloring into one cup and 5 drops of red food coloring into the second cup. Mix thoroughly, till you have one cup of red batter and one cup of blue batter.
COOKING THE CREPES:
Preheat your crepe pan. Pour your first cup of batter into a flat baking pan with a lip or sides. Make sure your pan is big enough to dip the crepe maker pan in. (This can also be made with a traditional stove top crepe pan. In this case you would simply pour the batter onto the pan and spread it with a wooden crepe spreader.) Once the crepe is cooked, gently pry it off the pan with a spatula. The first crepe never turns out perfect so don't be discouraged. Repeat this process until all of your crepe batter is cooked. (The batter made approx. 24 thin crepes
Combine 4 cups of heavy whipping cream and 1 cup of powdered sugar in the bowl of your stand mixer and whip until soft peaks are formed and the blade leaves a trail in the bowl while it is whipping.
ASSEMBLING THE CAKE:
Layer in the following order and repeat till all the crepes and whipped cream are gone.
Red crepe, whipping cream, blue crepe, whipping cream
End with whipping cream and garnish with all the fresh berries.
