Hey everybody, it’s Tiffany from Creme de la Crumb! Confession: I have a slight obsession with breakfast. Actually a HUGE obsession with breakfast. Pancakes, waffles, bacon, french toast, oatmeal, I love it all. One of my favorite breakfast foods though is….. crepes! For some reason there is a terrible misconception that crepes are difficult, they are not! It’s basically a really thin pancake. You can make pancakes. So you can make crepes!
The crepe batter is really simple and comes together in just a couple of minutes when you mix it up in the blender. Fry those babies up on the stove, stuff em full of creamy dreamy strawberry-coconut filling, and take a bite of heaven! Doesn’t matter if you’re knee deep in snow, or enduring the rainy season, these crepes will make you feel like you are in paradise!
Lemon Crepes with Strawberry Coconut Filling Recipe
Lemon Crepes with Strawberry Coconut Filling. Crepes are super easy to make and filled with a creamy strawberry - coconut filing.
- 1 3/4 cup flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 lemon zest (about 1 tbsp)
- 3 eggs at room temperature
- 2 cups whole milk or half and half - at room temperature
- 1 cup strawberries hulled and diced
- 2 tsp coconut extract
- 8 oz cool whip thawed
- 2 oz cream cheese
- diced strawberries, sweetened coconut flakes (optional)
Add flour, salt, lemon zest, eggs, and milk to your blender. Pulse 2-3 minutes until smooth. Cover and refrigerate for one hour.
Prepare the filling by adding diced strawberries, coconut extract, cream cheese, and cool whip to a large bowl and mixing on medium speed with a hand mixer about 1 minute. Chill until ready to use.
Preheat a medium-large nonstick pan or skillet to medium-low heat. Brush pan with oil. Pour ¼ cup batter into the pan and immediately tilt and turn pan to cover the bottom surface evenly with batter. Allow to cook about 45 seconds, flip and cook another 45 seconds on second side. Set crepe aside and repeat with remaining batter.
Fill each crepe with about ¼-1/3 cup strawberry coconut filling. Top with additional strawberries and shredded coconut if desired. Enjoy!
