Seasonal Breakfast Crepes

Updated: Aug 7, 2023

A flavor for every season

Wait until you taste these wonderful breakfast treats! Crepes are a favorite in my house and are one of the few breakfasts that my daughter requests for me to make. Usually daddy does the majority of the cooking in our house, but this one is my specialty. My daughter loves it so much that she started making it with me this week.


Depending on the season, we love changing up the pie filling. In the summer, we like cherry or strawberry. In the fall, my husband loves the pumpkin pie filling. Some times we even use a favorite jelly or jam instead of the pie filling. We even tried bananas with sugar and honey once. We love trying new flavors.

I love mommy's crepes! - my daughter, Willow.

I started with a I found online and after years of making them and tweaking the recipe to our liking, I am very happy with the results. This dish is truly a winner for my family!


Seasonal Breakfast Crepes


Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 cup whole milk

  • 3 tbsp granulated sugar

  • 3 tbsp butter, melted.

  • 1 tbsp pure vanilla extract*

  • 1 tsp chocolate extract (optional)

  • ¼ tsp salt

  • 1/2 packet of cream cheese at room temperature

  • 1 can canned fruit pie filling

  • Confectioner's sugar

  • butter, additional for cooking


Directions

  1. Heat up a large round frying pan on low. Melt the 3 tbsp of butter.

  2. In a large bowl, add the flour, eggs, milk, extracts, salt, and melted butter. Whisk until smooth. Set aside.

  3. Place a small sauce pan on a separate burner on low heat. Add the cream cheese and pie filling. Stir occasionally until well blended. Keep heat low and stir to keep from burning.

  4. Add a little butter to the hot frying pan and pour just enough batter to cover the surface of the pan. Flip crepe when edges are golden. Cook on this side briefly.

  5. Remove to plate. Add a helping of cream cheese mixture to the center of the crepe. Wrap up in a roll. Use a small sifter to sprinkle powered sugar on top of the crepe. Serve hot.

  6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 until batter is used.

* We love using Mexican vanilla for this recipe. It can be found on Amazon here: https://a.co/d/04KB8iH


Crepes can be made ahead of time and reheated, if necessary.

Whipped cream, fruit, and other toppings can be added, as desired.

Jam or jelly can also be substituted for the pie filling.
