CRÊPE CAKE!!!!! With Caramelized Apples & Wild Blueberries!

So I've spent the entire day cooking Easter supper. All By myself! Deboned turkey, with vegetables, blueberry pudding, yorkshire puddings, and of course, Graaaaavy. Mmm MMm Mmmmmm. It was great! I've impressed myself, but my feet are saying "I hate you". So the menu from yesterday to tomorrow is as follows: Friday/Fried cod fillets, hashbrown casserole, ceasar salad, potato roasters. Saturday(Today)/Turkey(deboned), vegetables(potato,carrot,cabbage,turnip), blueberry pudding, yorkshire pudding, salt meat & Bunny cake. Sunday/ Prime rib and all the trimmings. Monday/Sleep....

Since it's been a long day, I feel like a treat. Crepes are possibly one of my absolute favorite things to make. SO EASY and SO GOOD. So Versatile.
So for the crepe lovers out there, heres to you...

You Will Need:
1 1/2 cup All-purpose flour
2 cups Milk
2 Eggs
1 tbsp Granulated sugar
1 cup 35% whipping cream
2 tbsp Icing sugar
1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
1 tbsp Vegetable oil
1 tbsp Butter
2 Organic Gala Apples, peeled and sliced into 1/2-inch (1 cm) slices
3 tbsp Unsalted butter
3 tbsp Honey
1/2 cup Chopped Pecans
1/2 cup Frozen Wild Blueberries

In a bowl, whisk flour and milk until smooth. Add eggs and sugar and whisk until smooth, about 10 seconds. Let stand 10 min.

Meanwhile, beat whipping cream, icing sugar and vanilla until firm. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

Heat a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Melt butter and oil together in microwave for 30 seconds; stir to blend. With a heat-resistant brush, brush pan lightly with some of the butter and oil mixture. When pan is hot, pour 1/3 cup batter in pan and swirl pan to coat thinly. Cook until bottom is golden and edges start to curl, about 1 min.

Flip over and cook other side, about 30 seconds. Remove to a platter. Repeat with remaining batter to make 8 crêpes.

Melt butter in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat, Add apples and cook until lightly browned, about 3 min. Add honey and simmer 1 min. Add pecans and blueberries and simmer 1 min. Remove from heat and let stand for 5 min.

To assemble, lay one crepe on a serving platter. Spread evenly with 1/4 cup whipped cream. Repeat, using all the crepes and whipped cream. Top with apple-blueberry mixture. Cut into eight wedges and serve with additional whipped cream, if desired.
