Chef's Note

In the Netherlands, this crêpe cake is usually made with apples, but the quantity of apples is sometimes reduced by half, and layers of apples alternated with layers of rhubarb when seasonal.

Hint: place the crêpes on an inverted plate so that they don't sink down in the center.

Cut the cake into wedges, like a pie.
