What are Crepes?

Sweet or savory, homemade crepes are very thin pancakes that can be served simply with powdered sugar and a spritz of lemon juice. Or they can be filled with homemade ricotta cheese or your favorite sweet or savory fillings.

Ingredients

BASE INGREDIENTS

Similar to pancakes, crepes have the same basic ingredients: eggs, flour, milk, and oil for the pan. But it’s that little bit of extra milk that makes them spread out thin.

    • For savory crepes, add a pinch of salt or some fresh herbs!
    • For sweet crepes, a pinch of sugar, a dash of vanilla, or some maple syrup adds to the sweetness.

How to Make Strawberry Crepes

  1. Combine all the ingredients (per recipe below) except butter in a blender and pulse until smooth.
  2. Melt butter in a 6” skillet and pour 2 tablespoons of crepe batter and immediately swirl the pan in a circular motion so the batter reaches the edges.
  3. Cook until the crepe is set and cake-like. Remove and repeat with the remaining batter.

Prepare strawberries according to recipe instructions below.

Make Ahead

Crepe batter is best if made at least 30 minutes ahead of time or up to 24 hours. Give it a quick gentle stir before you make your crepes.

The crepes themselves can also be made days ahead of time and lightly warmed meaning you can enjoy them for an easy breakfast all week long.

Tips

  • Use fresh or frozen strawberries. Frozen strawberries can have more liquid and may need a bit of extra corn starch.
  • The wider the pan, the wider the crepe. Our ideal size for this recipe is a 6” skillet.
  • Crepes can be made ahead! Just store them in the refrigerator between sheets of parchment paper until ready to use again. Crepes will keep up to 4 days in the refrigerator.
  • Freeze crepes by storing them with parchment paper between them and they’ll last up to 4 months.
  • To reheat crepes, place on a microwave-safe plate and cover with a clean, wet paper towel. Reheat in intervals of 30 seconds until warm.
