Berry Crepe Stack

I'm not a massive sweet tooth (contrary to this being my second dessert post in as many weeks) but when I do get a hankering for sugar - I tend to go a little overboard. These are really easy to make and look great. I found the most amazing boysenberry jam a while ago from New Zealand company Anathon. It is super sweet and goes beautifully with fresh strawberries. You can really use any mix of jam and berries you like though - I promise it will still be delish and leave you with a sugar headache.

What you need;
(makes about 10 small crepes, enough for 2 people)

1 cup plain flour
1/2 cup soy milk
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup sugar
vegan margarine
berry jam
1 punnet fresh strawberries
icing sugar for decoration

What you do;

1) Mix the flour water, soy milk and sugar til all the lumps are gone. Then cover and set aside in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

2) After 30 mins, heat a small crepe pan to medium and melt a small chunk of margarine to cover the base. Add a ladle of crepe mix and wait for it to turn slightly translucent before flipping.

3) You can put a tiny bit of margarine on the crepe before you spread the jam. Add sliced strawberries with a sprinkle of sugar to one of the layers.

4) When you've finished the stack, cover the top with sliced strawberries and dust some icing sugar on top.

Easy peasy.
