Easy Crepes with Strawberry Cream Cheese Filling

Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 2 c. milk
  • 1 1/3 c. flour
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vegetable oil
  • FILLING:
  • 2 c. strawberries, chopped
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 8 oz. cream cheese
  • ½ c. powdered sugar
  • ½ tsp. vanilla

Instructions

  • In a blender or food processor combine all ingredients (if you don't want them to be sweet, take out the sugar and vanilla). Blend until smooth and all ingredients are mixed together. Cover and refrigerate about an hour (don't skip this step.. it is very important). Heat a skillet* over medium-high heat and spray with cooking spray or oil. Pour 1/4 cup of the batter into pan, tilting to completely coat the surface of the pan (kind of like how you would if you were trying to coat the pan with oil). Cook 3-4 minutes, flipping over once, until golden. The thinner the crepe, the better!
  • *If you have a crepe maker... use that. They will turn out perfect every time. ;)
  • For the filling: Combine strawberries and sugar and set aside. In a mixing bowl, mix cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla until smooth. Fold in strawberry mixture until well combined. Put about 1-2 Tbsp. of mixture in each crepe. Roll up and serve with sliced strawberries and whipped cream.

  1. I made these last night. So good! My filling didn’t turn out very pretty, but it was delicious! They were super easy to make and I am definitely going to try some of those other filling ideas. Thanks for sharing!

  2. My filling came out all runny . . . I added another 1/2 cup of confectioner’s sugar, but it was still pretty runny. Any tips?

    • If the strawberries are too runny themselves, it will make the filling runny. You can try draining out some of the strawberry juice, or you can try just folding in the strawberry pieces extra gently!

    • The recipe calls for fresh strawberries, not frozen. It sounds like you used frozen, which have more water in them.

    • Keep the strawberries & sugar separate. The filling became runny from the moisture from the strawberries. Add a little fruit when making the crepe.

  3. loved making these!! how long will the batter keep? we didn’t use it all so I put it back in the fridge, and was going to make the rest tonight for dinner, is that ok to do?

  4. Made them tonight for family dessert …yummy!
    I used food processor to chop the berries, though. Next time will hand chop so it’s less juicy.

  5. Made these for breakfast. Fast and simple to make. The filling was delicious & the crepes? Perfect! It was my husbands first time trying them and he loved them!

  6. Great recipe! We actually use these tailgating at NCSU, red being the key color for food, and love them. We do keep strawberries separated till putting crepes together. Crushed pecans and chocolate sauce are also good to sprinkle on top. I think my family has as much fun creating their own crepe as eating it. Go Pack!

  7. in stead of using cream cheese use Philadelphia cheesecake filling(ready to eat kind) gives it a richer taste

  8. Can I make these the night before and warm them in the morning or will they get soggy and the color bleed through?

      • Thanks… I kind of figured that would happen :( I might do a practice run today and see how they are tomorrow just in case they work and I can use them for Easter. I don’t think they would go to waste!! LOL

  9. I am going to use evaporated milk instead of cream cheese….. we’ll see! :D

    UPDATE: I didn’t add confectioner’s sugar to the filling, evaporated milk is already sweet. They turned out good…. really good! Although the batter was runny….. Oh, well!
