Serves 6-8

Ingredients

  • 2 each Eggs, beaten
  • ¾ cup Milk, Whole
  • ½ cup Water
  • 1 cup Flour, All Purpose
  • 3 Tbs Butter, Melted
  • ½ tsp Almond Extract
  • 1 tsp Lemon, Zest
  • 1 pint Strawberries, Sliced Thin
  • 2  cups Heavy Cream
  • ½ cup Confectioners Sugar
  • ¼ tsp Almond Extract 

METHOD

  1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the eggs, milk, water, with the flour and whisk until thoroughly mixed. (about 2 minutes)

  2. Add the melted butter and flavorings and stir in thoroughly.  Let the batter sit covered for one hour, or overnight in the refrigerator, to relax (not doing so results in tough thick crepes)

  3. While the batter is resting, rinse the strawberries and pat dry.  Remove the stems and any residual green and slice ¼ in thick and reserve.

  4. With a stand mixer or hand whisk, whip the cream, sugar and extract to semi firm peaks (should be relaxed, not too stiff) 

  5. To cook the crepes, set the cinder grill to 246 degrees Fahrenheit and allow to heat up.

  6. Using a ½ cup measure and an offset spatula,  pour ½ cup of the batter onto the cinder grill in a zigzag motion to cover as much of the griddle as you can (it won’t cover the entire grill) Use the spatula to smooth out the remaining batter and close the lid.  The crepe will be ready in 30 second and can hold up to 2 minutes in case you get distracted, maybe more be could cause it to become tough.

  7. Carefully remove the crepe and reserve on a clean plate.

  8. Repeat step 6 & 7 until the batter is gone (makes 10 crepes)

  9. For assembly, lay one crepe on the desired serving platter. Spread ½ cup of the whipped cream with an offset spatula to the ends of the crepe.  Lay slices of strawberries evenly and cover with the next layer of crepe. Repeat steps using all the crepes and whipped cream. Garnish the cake with whole strawberries on top of the final layer of whipped  cream.

  10. Refrigerate the cake for 20 minutes to 2 hours prior to serving
