Mix until incorporated, don’t worry if there are lumps.

strawberries-cream-crepe-cake-leotunapika-7The secret to perfect crepes is a very hot pan can be non stick or stainless steel and thin and light batter.

strawberries-cream-crepe-cake-leotunapika-8Once the pan and the oil is hot,pour in the batter, for even crepes I use a 1/3 cup measure.

strawberries-cream-crepe-cake-leotunapika-9Once bubbles start forming and the edges are browned, the crepe is ready to be flipped.

I prefer lifting the edge slightly with a spoon then using my hands to flip it over.

As the crepes are cooking, work on the strawberry sauce.

In a sauce pan,add the sliced strawberries, sugar and water.

strawberries-cream-crepe-cake-leotunapika-2Once the sauce simmers done, remove from heat then pass through a sieve.

The last thing to be prepped is the whipped cream. You can work with heavy cream and icing sugar, however I prefer using the whip pack below.strawberries-cream-crepe-cake-leotunapika-12

Once everything is set, the assembling of the crepe cake begins.

On a large plate or cake stand, place one crepe.

I love making, plating and eating pancakes.

These plantain pancakes are such a crowd pleaser. I love to serve with some butterscotch sauce and pan fried plantain slices. Delicious. 

Recipe in my cookbook, The Little Veggie Cookbook. Order via the link on my profile.

I was gifted some salmon by @ibrahims_butchery and I made it for dinner.
They currently have an offer on salmon. 

It's my first time making salmon, yep! 

It's a play on garlic butter salmon though I used olive oil instead since I didn't have butter.

Absolutely delicious.

I served with lyonnaise potatoes (recipe on my feed) and some garlicky french beans (recipe in my cookbook)
