Then i saw it again on a lovely blog with a detailed step by step recipe.
Ever since i saw this recipe thoughtfully translated by Fancy Illusionist, I've been itching to try it. There were a lot of steps but at least it did not require an oven. I have no proper fridge but i have a mini bar. I have no electric mixer but i have a whisk and some strength. ( I am living in a temporary quarters so no point splurging on all those yeah?). I had bought all the required ingredients about 2 weeks ago but only managed to whisk them all up today.
And here are the fruits of my labour.
Fist i had to whisk and mix all the ingredients the night before.
Then i had to painstakingly pan fry thin pieces of what looked like pancakes.I broke the first few but the rest were a piece of cake. (pun unintentionally intended)
Then i surprise myself for actually being able to whisk whipping cream into cream with a manual whisk.
A pity i did not buy enough cream. I needed 300mls but only bought the box of 200mls whipping cream. Cos the next available size was 600mls. What a waste!
But so that means i did not have enough creme for all my crepes so out of my 16 pieces of crepes 5 were unused but delightfully gobble up by my one true love.
And all that effort for this...
I present to you my first Mille Crepe!
Oh my gosh it actually looks better in real life and the taste is not bad too! Wish i had more layers and cream though.
Do you feel hungry?
