Well, the idea was not bad... I think. Yesterday I made a test batch of Japanese style bread (ampan) with sweetened kabocha pumpkin paste and custard cream. The bread wasn't soft enough but the combination of the fillings was proven to be very good. I was happy for the rest of the day.
But I needed to do something with the leftover fillings today. The pumpkin paste could have been frozen, but not the custard cream. (Right?) So I thought this crepe idea could take care of several leftovers at once: ampan bread fillings from yesterday, loquat compote made about ten days ago, tangy strawberry jam made this morning but didn't taste good on toasted bread, and the whipping cream which had been sitting in the fridge for a couple of weeks. Yes, the idea itself wasn't bad... But the thing is, none of these three kinds of crepes turned out great or anything. They were just OK.
Well, I'm going shopping now, and if I would have some energy left when I come back, I might try making mille crepes cake (which looks like this) with the leftover crepes, whipping cream and loquat compote. Maybe I could chop up the compote and mix with the cream...
I did. :D
It was "just OK," again.
