Spring and Brunch - Week 4 - Crepe Cake - Sweden

May is the month of Mothers. In the US we celebrate Mother's day on May 10th. Mother's Day has taken a whole new meaning for me since I become a mother myself to our wonderful little boy Erik Saana. He has brought so much sunshine to our world and we feel so lucky to have him in our lives. Motherhood brings with it so much boundless joy yet a lot of difficult challenges. It has made me appreciate my sweet mother Lady Jayne even more. Happy Mother’s Day to you Mum! You raised 7 children, have been the force that glues our family together and still manage to remain young, beautiful and energetic. You are the strongest woman I know. Thank you for helping mold me into the woman I have become. I love you now and always. I would also like to say a Happy Mother’s Day to my sister Leesi and all the strong, intelligent generous and beautiful women in my life!!! I am dedicating this dish to you - Crepe Cakes. A dish as sweet, beautiful, complex and full of surprises as you all! Enjoy!!!

Crepe Cake

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 25 minutes

Total time: 40 minutes

Ingredients (Makes about 12 medium crepes)


1 cup flour

½ teaspoon nutmeg, ground

¼ teaspoon salt

1 egg

2 cups milk

½ tablespoon sugar

½ teaspoon vanilla extract

4 tablespoons olive oil


1 cup low fat yogurt

½ cup lingonberry preserve or jam

1 cup fresh strawberries, sliced


  • Mix the dry ingredients together - flour, nutmeg and salt

  • Beat the eggs, milk, sugar and vanilla together with a whisk or an electric mixer until frothy

  • Beat in the dry ingredients until smooth

  • Heat a medium frying pan over low heat, then add 1 teaspoon of oil to just coat the base of the pan.

  • Use a soup spoon to scoop the crepe mixture into the pan so that the mixture forms a very thin crepe, then fry each side uncovered for about 1 ½ - 2 minutes or until golden brown

  • Place a crepe on a plate and spread a layer of yogurt over it, top with another crepe, then spread a layer of lingonberry preserve or jam and fresh strawberries; continue making alternate layers of yogurt then lingonberry preserve or jam and fresh strawberries

  • Spread lingonberry preserve or jam and fresh strawberries over the crepe at the top

Tips: To save time, you can fry the crepes in 2 frying pans simultaneously. This will reduce the cooking time; you may find lingonberry preserve or jam at your local grocery store, otherwise you will find it in a Scandinavian grocery store. Alternatively, you can use cranberry preserve or jam
