Strawberry Crepes

Thursday, May 24th, 2012


These heavenly strawberry crepes taste delicious. They just melt in your mouth. I made them for the first time last summer, after my children picked fresh strawberries at a local farm.

First mix 8 oz. Mascarpone cheese, 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar, ½ teaspoon of dried basil, and 1 teaspoon of lemon juice. Fold in 1 ½ cups of sliced strawberries. Put it in the refrigerator for half an hour.

Meanwhile, get the topping ready. Mix 2 cups of sliced strawberries, ½ cup of sugar, 2 tablespoons of orange juice, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla.

Now make the thin pancakes, which are called crepes. Mix together 3 eggs, slightly less than 1 cup of milk, ¾ cup of flour, 5 teaspoons of melted butter, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 teaspoon of vanilla, and ¼ teaspoon of salt.

Heat up two 8-inch frying pans over medium heat. Put a tablespoon of oil into each of them. Pour about ¼ cup of batter into each pan. Flip when lightly browned. Brown both sides.

Place the crepe on a plate. Put the Mascarpone mixture inside the middle and fold the two sides over. Pour the topping over it. Enjoy your strawberry crepes.
