Blueberry Crepes Recipe
- 150 ml flour
- 15 ml sugar granulated
- pinch salt
- 2 eggs
- 175 ml milk
- 15 ml oil
- 1 ml lemon juice
- Place all of your ingredients into a large bowl with high sides. Use a hand mixer and beat until smooth ~2-3 min.
- Let your batter rest for 15 min at room temperature.
- Heat your crepe pan or a large frying pan on medium heat.
- Place a bit of oil in the pan and spread it around using a pastry brush.
- Pour 75-80 ml of batter into the pan. You might have to use your pastry brush to gently guide the dough around the pan. Or, if you're using a frying pan, tilt the pan until the dough is covering the whole pan. The crepe will be very thin.
- Cook until the crepe is a very light golden brown color. Flip the crepe and cook the other side for 2 min. It will be difficult to flip because crepes are delicate and flimsy.
- Place the crepe on a plate you plan to serve it on. It's best if you don't stack your done crepes. Put them on different plates so they are easy to fill and you wont risk tearing them. Or put parchment paper in between them if you don't want to use that many plates.
- Fill your crepes. You can put the sauce in the center roll them up. Or, you can layer the crepe like a an accordion and top with sauce.
- Serve immediately.
Blueberry Sauce for Crepes
- 60 ml sugar
- 15 ml cornstarch
- 45 ml water
- 250 ml blueberries
- In a small saucepan on low-medium heat mix together water and cornstarch.
- Stir in water. The mixture should bubble and thicken within a few minutes.
- Add in blueberries. Cook until the sauce thickens and is heated throughout. It can take longer to cook the sauce if the berries are frozen.
- Serve immediately on crepes. Store in the fridge for up to 2-3 days.
You can make your blueberry sauce for your crepes with frozen or fresh blueberries. If you use frozen blueberries, the sauce can take a bit longer to cook. Be patient, your sauce will thicken up in about 10-15 minutes.
What is the difference between a pancake and a crepe?
A pancake using leavening agents to make it puff up. Pancakes are quite a dense food to eat, therefore they are fairly filling. Crepes do not use any leavening agents. The batter is very thin, unlike pancake batter which is a thick batter. Crepes are thin after they are cooked, making them not very filling. They are not a very sweet food, so you can top them with just about anything. There are savory or sweet crepes, whereas for pancakes there are only sweet toppings for them.
What do crepes taste like?
Crepes taste like a neutral food, there isn’t that much flavor to them, other than a hint of egg flavor. The flavor for a crepe comes from the sauce it’s served with. You can serve crepes with countless sauces like hazelnut spread, chocolate sauce, strawberry sauce, etc.
