Sweet crepes are best for dessert or for breakfast. Basic sweet crepes are made with eggs, milk, water, flour, sugar, butter, salt and vanilla for flavor.
They can be filled with Nutella and strawberries, jam (strawberry, raspberry), preserves (apricot, strawberry and raspberry), bananas or other sliced fruits, custards and fruit spreads or whatever you like. For simple sweet crepe fillings, try strawberry banana Nutella crepes or crepes with Nutella and raspberry jam, topped with whipped cream and chocolate syrup, chocolate sauce or with more Nutella! Mmm. Ya gotta love crepes!!
Topping crepes with ice cream, chocolate sauce, fruit sauces (blueberry, strawberry and raspberry) or whipped cream makes a perfect dessert. Whatever crepe filling or topping you choose, when you make these delicate crepes at home, you will feel like you are eating street food from a little café style restaurant in Paris! Roll them, fold them, fill them or top them. Crepes are simple and delicious, delicate and thin French pancakes that everyone will enjoy!
Note: Crepes can be made by hand, in a bowl, with a whisk, but I have always found lumps and had to strain the batter. This is why I prefer to use a blender. Making crepe batter in a blender creates a silky, smooth crepe batter, without lumps. The perfectly cooked crepes are soft and tender, proving that you don’t have to be a chef to make great crepes! By far, the easiest way to make crepes; a foolproof recipe.
