Ingredients needed for Strawberry Cream Cheese Crepes

  • Eggs: Four eggs is the perfect amount for the best texture.
  • Milk: I like to use 1% milk, but you can use whatever you have on hand.
  • Butter: Unsalted butter is best in this recipe because you are already adding salt.
  • Sugar: I love whit granulated sugar, but I like to use less sugar when making savory crepes.
  • Vanilla: Pure vanilla or vanilla extract both work well.
  • Salt: Add more or less to taste.
  • Flour: I always use all purpose flour, but use what you prefer.

Ingredients needed for Cream Cheese Crepe Filling

  • Cream cheese: I use fat free cream cheese, but full fat works also works well.
  • powdered sugar: Gives a nice texture to the filling and helps stiffen up the whipped cream.
  • Lemon juice: Gives a nice lemon flavor to the frosting.
  • vanilla: Pure vanilla or vanilla extract both work well.
  • Heavy whipping cream: Make sure your whipping cream is nice and cold before whipping. This helps to give it a nice soft peak.
  • Strawberries: Fresh sliced strawberries, or any fruit of your choice work great.

How to make strawberry and cream crepes

Crepes are so easy to make and can be made the night before for a restaurant style breakfast or brunch on any morning. One thing to know when making crepes, is that the crepe batter must sit in the fridge for at least an hour before cooking. Resting the crepe batter will allow the flour to fully absorb the liquid and gives the gluten a chance to relax. I like to whip up my crepe batter the night before and pull it out in the morning when I’m ready to cook.

  • In a medium size mixing bowl add heavy whipping cream and 4 TBS powdered sugar. Then, mix with a hand mixer until whipping cream comes to a soft peak.
  • Next, add whipped cream to the cream cheese mixture and fold together to combine. Set aside in the fridge until you are ready to assemble your crepes.
  • Add eggs, milk, butter, sugar, vanilla, salt, and flour to your blender. Mix the crepe batter for 15-20 seconds or until fully combined. Place batter in the fridge for at least an hour or overnight.
  • Remove crepe batter from fridge and spray a medium size non stick skillet with cooking spray. Add 1/4 cup of batter to warm skillet and turn pan from side to side to allow batter to form an even circle.
  • Cook crepe over medium heat until the top appears to look dry and slides in the pan easy.
  • Flip crepe over and cook and additional 15-20 seconds. Remove from pan and stack crepes until ready to eat.
  • Spread about 1/4 cup of filling down the crepe and add fresh strawberries.
  • Roll up your crepe, top with whip cream and strawberries, and sprinkle with powdered sugar! Enjoy!

Crepe filling ideas

  • Nutella: Nutella served with strawberries is a delicious combination.
  • Lemon and Sugar: Squeeze lemon juice over crepe and sprinkle with granulated sugar.
  • Jam: Any flavor of jam you prefer. I love raspberry and strawberry.
  • Fresh fruit: Use whatever fruit is fresh and in season.
  • Pie Filling: Pie filling is such an easy way to create delicious fillings.
  • Cinnamon Sugar: This taste just like a yummy churro.
  • Lemon Curd: I love the combination of lemon curd and sliced strawberries.

Savory Crepe Filling Ideas

  • Scrambled Eggs and Veggies: Scrambled eggs, mushrooms, and bell peppers are my favorite.
  • Ham and Cheese: Use chopped or sliced ham and cheddar cheese.
  • Fresh Mozzarella, Tomatoes, and Basil: This is a perfect flavor combination to use fresh garden tomatoes.
  • Griled Chicken and Veggies: A great way to use up that leftover chicken from the night before.
