maple and apple crepe cake

Oh, that's right internet, it's a crepe cake. Delicious maple crepes stacked between layers of cinnamon sugar apples and a pumpkin spiced cream cheese icing. May your box brownies walk away in shame in the presence of this king of desserts. It's seasonal, impressive looking once you've cut into it, and delicious. A word of warning before you Pinterest-loving-sugar addicts decide to make this, just remember it's so labour intensive you might need to get a building permit, so only make it if you're at like a Walter White level of cooking or greater.

I don't have much to rant about this week. I always talk about myself on here, but I never ask, how are you? Oh, really? No, way. I can't believe that! Well just tell her next time she goes there to bring a moist towelette. Just remember no one is judging you as harshly as you judge yourself. Okay, back to me and this fantastic recipe that will result in a pile of sugar.


Maple Crepes 

Makes about 16 crepes

  • 2 large Eggs
  • 3/4 cup Milk
  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 1 cup Flour sifted
  • 3 tablespoons melted Butter
  • 2 tablespoons Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  1. Put all ingredients into a bowl. Mix until there's no more clumps. 
  2. I recommend using a crepe pan if you have one, or using a shallow skillet. 
  3. Cook each side for about 40 seconds over medium heat.
  4. Make as many crepes as possible with the matter.

Cinnamon Sugar Apples

  • 4 Gala Apples sliced thinly (about 1 cm thick, a mandolin works nicely)
  • 4 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon Ginger
  • 1 teaspoon Pumpkin Spice
  1. Mix all the spices and sugar together in a bowl using a whisk. 
  2. In a large skillet with a lid make a layer of apples, then spices, then apples, then spices, until you run out of ingredients.
  3. Cover and heat over medium until the apples become soft. Occasionally agitate the apples and move them around to avoid burning.
  4. Remove from heat to let them cool down.

  • 2 tablespoons Butter

  • 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  1. Mix everything together in a bowl until it has an icing like consistency. 
  2. Pretty easy huh?


Maple and Apple Crepe Cake

  • Everything you just made from the previous recipes.
  1. This is where things get labor intensive. Get a plate or whatever you plate cakes on. Maybe a frisbee? Start the cake by laying a crepe down, coating it with icing, then a layer of apples, and then top it off with another crepe. Continue layering until you run out of crepes. 
  2. Be sure to space out the apples to ensure your cake looks, well cake-like.
