Crepes are a delicious and easy to make treat that can be eaten pretty much anytime of day – breakfast, lunch, dinner or dessert depending on what you fill them with! They are similar to pancakes only much thinner and rolled like you would a burrito. They can be filled with fruit, cream, eggs, sausage – pretty much anything your heart desires. Below is a very quick and easy crepes recipe you can use when your in the mood to make something extra tasty and a little different.
This is a sweet version of a crepes recipe using whipped cream and fruit jam.
What You’ll Need:
- eggs (4 room temp)
- whole milk (2 1/2 cups)
- sugar (2/3 cup)
- vanilla extract (1 tsp)
- all purpose flour (2 1/2 cups)
- kosher salt (1/2 tsp)
- unsalted butter (4 tbsps melted)
- whipped cream
- jam (flavor / fruit of your choosing)
- powdered sugar
Using a handheld mixer, blender or mix by hand – blend eggs, milk, sugar and vanilla extract until smooth. Next combine the flour and salt. Cover your homemade batter and place in the fridge to chill for about an hour. When your batter is nice and chilled, heat a nonstick skillet at medium high heat – if you have a flat surface skillet that works best. Brush the skillet with butter. Using a ladle or a spoon, add about a 1/4 cup of batter on the skillet and swirl gently to evenly coat the bottom. Similar to pancakes, you want to cook the crepe until it starts to bubble of the surface and edges begin to get crispy and golden brown. Using a spatula flip the crepe over and cook on the other side. Transfer to a plate, use foil to tent over the crepe to keep warm while you cook your other crepes. Add about a dollop of jam into each crepe and fold over. Sprinkle a little powdered sugar on top, add whipped cream and enjoy!
