Gingerbread Crepe Cake
Happy Christmas week and happy first day of Winter! It’s probably the busiest and craziest week of the year but thankfully, it’s one of the warmest. Family gatherings, friendship rekindling and lots of cozy, winter recipes floating around in the air. I find this saying is indeed true ‘the coldest time of the year is also the warmest’ as I wrap presents, plan my Christmas day menu and bake delicious treats like this gingerbread crepe cake.
As you get together with loved ones this year, remember to slow down and enjoy the moments. The moments that will be remembered for years to come.
And if you are a last minute kind of girl like me, and still looking for a gorgeous dessert to serve your family, try this gingerbread crepe cake. It’s stunning, simple to create and filled with warm spices of the season.
A crepe cake is a great way to turn a brunch favorite into dessert. This gingerbread version uses my basic crepe recipe and adds to it warm spices of ginger, cinnamon and cloves. The crepes are made as you would normally and layered with repeating layers of a caramel cream cheese filling and some more caramel sauce. It’s all wrapped in a rustic naked way with the filling for a simple, yet delicious dessert.
This is not only for this time of the year but will be great all winter long as we cozy up around the fire. So if your holiday menu is already decked out, save this recipe in your arsenal for winter dinner parties and gatherings.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays friends! Wishing you a safe and wonderful time with friends, family and loved ones.
