Sweet or savory, crepes are like a very thin pancake 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, in this recipe we fill them with a homemade sauce to make strawberry crepes.

Ingredients for Strawberry Crepes

Crepe Batter: 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. Melted butter can be used in place of oil.

Strawberry Sauce: Simple to make, this sauce needs just fresh berries, sugar, water, and cornstarch.

How to Make Strawberry Crepes

  1. Make strawberry sauce: prep the strawberry sauce so it has a chance to cool before serving.

  3. Cook crepes: Cook until the crepe is set and fill with strawberry sauce.

Tip For Perfect Crepes

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

The crepes can also be made days ahead and lightly warmed.

Tips

  • Use fresh or frozen strawberries. Frozen strawberries can have more liquid and may need extra corn starch.
  • Use a small 6-inch non stick 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.
  • You can store crepes in the freezer for up to 3 months. Place parchment paper between each crepe.
  • 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.
