Ingredients
 
 

  • 3 eggs
  • 500 ml milk
  • 250 gr flour
  • butter

Ingredients for the filling

  • 500 ml old fresh cream for dessert
  • 120 gr icing sugar
  • 1/2 vanilla bean
  • 300 gr strawberries

Ingredients for chocolate ganache

  • 200 gr dark chocolate
  • 200 ml old fresh cream for dessert
  • Chopped hazelnuts

Instructions
 

First of all, starting by preparing the mixture for the crêpes:

  • In a bowl, beat 3 eggs with a whisk and pour the milk slowly, then add the sifted flour in 2 times. Put it in the fridge and wait 30 minutes. Then butter a non-stick pan and make about 12 not too big crepes.

Later prepare the filling to make your cake very creamy:

  • Whip the fresh cream with the icing sugar and the seeds of 1/2 vanilla bean. Then add also some strawberries cut into small pieces, mixing from bottom to top, so as to avoid to disassemble the cream.

Now assemble the cake:

  • In a hinged pan lay a crepe on the bottom, sprinkle with some cream and then cover with another crepe. Keep doing this until you have finished all the layers. Finish with a crepe. Place the mountain of crepes in the fridge for about 30 minutes.

In the meantime prepare the chocolate ganache:

  • Cut the chocolate into small pieces, put it in a bowl and heat the cream in a saucepan, but do not boil it. Later, stirring, pour the cream into the chocolate and mix with a whisk so that the chocolate melts definitively.
  • In the end decorate the cake with the ganache, some chopped hazelnuts and, if you want, with some strawberries.
