I am crazy about these Easy Crepes with Strawberry Cream Cheese Filling! We love crepes at our house. They make such a great breakfast, but we have had them for breakfast and lunch as well.
For those of you not familiar with crepes, crepes are basically really thin pancakes that are often folder over or rolled up and eaten. The word “crêpe” is of French origin and is pronounced “krape” (rhymes with ‘grape’) if you are from the U.S. or “krep” (rhymes with ‘step’) if you are from France.
The best thing about these easy crepes is that you can enjoy them in so many different ways. Making them with our yummy strawberry cream cheese filling is by far my favorite! I have included some other delicious ideas for crepe fillings below the recipe that are REALLY good too. If you have a good basic crepe recipe, you have a door to endless flavor possibilities!
Below, we have included how to make crepes in a regular, shallow pan and also how to make them using a crepe maker. Don’t be discouraged if they aren’t perfect the first time. It takes a little practice. Also, I have found, the first crepe never seems to turn out right (I have the same problem with the first pancake… anyone else???) by the 3rd or 4th crepe they are all come out nicely. Once you get a feel for when the crepes need to be flipped you will be good. Again, just be patient 😉
