If you ever stepped into my kitchen on a weekend, you’d find me making these gorgeous Crepes for breakfast for my kids!Its their most favorite breakfast of all time and they really look forward to it on the weekends.And why not!Nothing says it better than a soft delicate Crepe filled with a luscious creamy filling and vibrant Red Strawberries peeking out from the edges!

Crepes are easily available in stores everywhere, but why would you buy something that’s so easy to make at home and I personally prefer the home-made texture better than store bought ones!I just whisk all the ingredients and let it sit in the fridge for a few minutes before the process begins.Growing up I never had a Crepe but instantly fell in love with it in this quaint little French restaurant in London.Since then I’ve been making Crepes, but mostly with a savory Mushroom filling!But that’s for another time :) I started making the sweet fillings after my kids were born, and they’ve always enjoyed it with a LOT of drizzle of Chocolate Sauce :)

    These crepes are amazing. My kids loved them. They thought they were so perfesional looking, and tasting. However, I could not find Mascarpone cheese, so I substituted it with Ricotta cheese, turned out great! I blended the ricotta, greek yogurt and agave nectar in the blender until smooth. I used agave nectar instead of honey, delicious. Thanks for the great recipe.

    Tip for those who feal they can’t cook crepes:
    Use a non-stick pan, medium sized. While pan is hot, pour a pancake size amount in center of pan, then pick up the pan and tilt it on all sides so the batter can fill in a thin layer over the bottom if pan. Place back on stove. Wait until you see bubbles coming through, and the edges look dry, then simply with your spatula pry up one edge and slide spatula under. Should come up easy and flip. Cook for another minute or so and remove. Should have some golden spots on both sides.
    Hope this helps someone.

      As I was making this amazing breakfast, I was reminded of a dinner my Mom used to make that I completely forgot because it has been so long ago. She would make chicken crepes. So I looked up variations and I will make my own variation. 😊 I thought, why not triple the recipe, cook all the crepes, make my chicken crepes for dinner, then with the left over crepes I will make your strawberry crepes in the morning with everything prepared the night before. Easy, fast breakfast before church. 😊
      I thought I’d comment about my ideas. Busy Mom’s need more ideas like this to prepare more meals at the same time.

    This is the perfect breakfast, Soni. I grew up eating crepes on vacations in France and they are so delicious savory, or sweet. Yum!
