We adore this recipe because crepes are easy and these have a beautiful restaurant-style presentation.
They turn out light and fluffy every time and these cake-like crepes simply melt in your mouth!

What are Crepes?
Crepes are a very thin delicate version of a pancake. They can be sweet or savory depending on the filling. The basic ingredients in crepes are flour, eggs, and milk.
How to Make Crepe Filling
This is the fun part! Crepes can be filled with a variety of sweet or savory ingredients.
- For savory crepes, a good base is cream cheese or ricotta cheese. Then mix in some diced veggies like bell peppers, mushrooms, or even shredded meat like chicken or salmon. Chopped bacon and scrambled eggs, ham and cheese, or spinach and cheese sauce are other tasty options.
- For sweet crepes fill them with cream cheese and a variety of fresh fruits like berries, bananas, or fruit preserves, chocolate sauce, Nutella, or even peanut butter! Top with whipped cream and a classy breakfast or dessert is ready to serve!

How to Assemble Blueberry Crepes
Crepes are very delicate, but if they are wrapped and garnished properly they are absolutely gorgeous on the plate! Handle crepes when they are still a little warm and pliable. Cold crepes might tear when folding.
- Place crepe on a plate and spoon filling onto one corner. Add fresh blueberries and a bit of whipped cream.
- Gently fold crepes around the filling (or roll up if desired).
- Top with whipped cream.
- When making crepes for a crowd, stack them between sheets of parchment paper and store in the refrigerator until they are ready to be reheated.
- Crepes can be frozen with this method as well.
- To reheat crepes, simply pop them in the microwave for about 30 seconds or until they are heated through.
