My kids get to pick whatever they want to eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner on their birthday. My son just turned 5 years old and he asked for strawberry crepes for breakfast. I whipped up a batch for him and his sister and they gobbled up every last bite. This is a fun and easy recipe to prepare and it makes breakfast extra special.
- 4 eggs
- 1 1/3 cup non fat milk
- 1 tbsp melted butter
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 tbsp white sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 8-10 strawberries, stems removed and diced
- 1 tbsp sugar, more depending on the sweetness of the berries
- Powdered sugar, sifted
Combine the first seven ingredients in a large bowl; use immersion blender (or whisk) to mix crepe batter thoroughly. Make sure there are no lumps in the batter. Heat a small non stick skillet over medium heat. Spray with cooking spray and using a small ladle, spoon about 3-4 tablespoons of crepe batter into the hot pan. Tilt the pan clockwise so that the batter spreads evenly over the bottom of the pan. Cook for 30 seconds to 1 minute per side. Most people only cook one side but I cook both.
Combine the diced strawberries and the sugar together. Taste the berries and add more sugar if needed.
Remove the crepe from the pan and place on a plate. Spread a bit of the strawberries down the center of the crepe. Roll and place on another plate for serving. Sprinkle the top with sifted powdered sugar and more strawberries. Eat immediately. Enjoy.
