Whip up these Strawberry Crepes for a a fancy, yet simple breakfast.

Simple Strawberry Crepes

Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup 2% milk
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter melted
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp lemon zest optional
  • 4 cups fresh strawberries sliced
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • Lemon wedges

Instructions

  • In a large mixing bowl whisk the eggs, water, milk, vanilla, and melted butter. Mix well.
  • Add the flour, salt, and lemon zest to the batter, and stir.
  • Refrigerate for 30 minutes (or overnight) to let the batter rest.
  • Heat a crepe pan, or shallow nonstick pan, over medium heat. Lightly grease the pan with butter.
  • Pour ¼ cup of batter on the hot pan and immediately use a crepe spreader to create a tin layer, covering the cooking surface evenly.
  • The batter will cook quickly- in 30 seconds to one minute. Lift the crepe and check the browning on the underside. If nicely golden, flip the crepe with a broad silicone spatula.
  • Cook the second side for 30-45 seconds. (The second side may not show the brown makings like the first side and that’s ok).
  • Remove the cooked crepe to a plate and allow to cool thoroughly before stacking the next crepe. Use multiple plates if needed to alternate the cooling process.
  • Rinse strawberries and gently blot dry.
  • Slice strawberries and lemon wedges.
  • Place sliced strawberries on the inside of the crepes, then fold into quarters.
  • Top crepes with more strawberries, a squeeze of lemon, and powdered sugar.
