Light, airy, and with a touch of sweetness, these crepes are not only easy but delicious too. Plus, since you prep your batter and berries the night before, you can be ready to make warm crepes at any moment!
How to make Crepes
Whether you are looking to make these for breakfast or brunch, these crepes are a cinch to make.
- The night before: Add the milk, eggs, melted butter, sugar, vanilla, salt, and flour to a blender. Blend for about 20 seconds. Then refrigerate the batter overnight or for at least 30 minutes.
- The next day or when you are ready to make crepes: Lightly grease a large skillet with cooking spray. An 8″ or 12″ skillet works great! Next, place the skillet on low heat and add about 1/3 cup of batter.
- Fry the crepe until it’s slightly brown on each side. This is about 1-2 minutes on each side.
- Fold the crepe in half on a serving platter and serve immediately!
Ways to eat Crepes
We love these easy crepes with a drizzle of maple syrup, dusting of powdered sugar, and fresh blueberries. Another favorite is filled and topped with fresh fruits(blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries) and Redi Whip.
Fruit pie filling is also great and quick! There are so many great options like apple, cherry, and blueberry pie filling. Just spread a light layer of the filling down the center of the crepe, roll it, and you are ready to enjoy a light, sweet breakfast!
You can also fill crepes up with eggs, bacon, and cheese for a hardier option. It’s like a crepe breakfast burrito! A warm savory option.
As always, this family’s favorite breakfast options are totally customizable. Make them ahead of time and keep them warm in a 200 degree Fahrenheit oven too! Crepes also reheat very well. Warm them back up for about a minute or two in a skillet or about 15 seconds in the microwave. Crepes are perfect for all occasions! Enjoy!
