On our coffee table lies a book of handwritten quotes my daughter put together. Whenever she hears or reads an inspiring quote, she jots it down in this hard-covered book. This past Sunday as I sat down by the coffee table, I noticed the book was open and a quote was highlighted with a post-it next to it. The highlighted quote (from Grey's Anatomy) said: "when we follow our hearts, when we choose not to settle, it's funny isn't it? A weight lifts, the sun shines a little brighter, and for a brief moment, we find a little peace." And the post-it (in my daughter's handwriting) said: "pancake cake=settling, crepe cake=peace!"
And so, in order to maintain the peace at home, I made this Pumpkin Spice Crepe Cake after Saturday's Pancake Cake because settling always has it's consequences.
When I went to Walmart to pick up some eggs for the crepes, I saw International Delight's fall flavors in a refrigerated bin near by, so, I grabbed the Pumpkin Pie Spice Creamer to go with the Pumpkin Spice coffee I had at home.
However, after having used a protein shake to make crepes last week, I figured I would use International Delight's Pumpkin Pie Spice Creamer in the crepe batter as well, which made these Pumpkin Spice crepes a treat all by themselves! But, since I am Team Pancake and my daughter is Team Crepe, I figured I would make a decadent dessert to rival the pancake cake from Saturday. And, that's how this Pumpkin Spice Crepe Cake came about.
The Making of This Pumpkin Spice Crepe Cake:
• The Crepes are quite easy to pull together. Just place 1 1/2 cups of GF flour (or all purpose if you don't have issues with gluten), 2 eggs, a cup of water, 3/4 cup International Delight's Pumpkin Pie Spice Creamer, 4 tablespoons of coconut oil melted (or butter) and 1/3 cup pumpkin puree in a container and whisk till well combined and there are no lumps.
• Then just pour half a ladle of crepe batter into a pan on a medium flame and twist the pan around so the crepe batter spreads around, forming a crepe.
• Let each crepe cook for 30 - 40 seconds and flip. I made 16 crepes from this dough, but only used 11 in the crepe cake.
• I then let the crepes cool and set about making the "frosting".
• The "frosting" is made by mixing the solid part of 1 can of coconut milk (that has been refrigerated overnight), 1/2 cup pumpkin puree, 1/2 cup confectioner's sugar, 1 tablespoon coconut oil melted, 1 1/2 tablespoons of gelatin and 1 tablespoon of International Delight's Pumpkin Pie Spice Creamer together with an electric mixer.
• The crepe cake is assembled by alternating crepes and about 2 tablespoons of frosting. I let the cake set in the fridge for about an hour. Then topped it with some melted chocolate and it was ready to be savored.
