Brown Sugar Strawberry Crepes

When I'm feeling like a really nice mom, I make The Kids crepes for breakfast. They are just a super thin pancake topped with strawberries, cinnamon sugar, and whipped cream. But they make The Kids happy. I can even get them to empty the dishwasher or clean the bathroom after I make a batch of crepes.

The batter takes about 5 minutes to whip up in the blender. It is the actually cooking of the crepes that takes some time. I heard Martha Stewart say on her show the other day that she could make 9 crepes at one time. Man, does she have a huge stove. I could make a maximum of 4 crepes at one time, but that means I would have to but 3 more crepe pans. I'll stick with making one at a time. That way I'll make them less often, and they will be that much more special when I do.

Brown Sugar Strawberry Crepes

makes about 15 crepes or 4 - 5 servings

1 pint of strawberries sliced and mixed with 1/4 cup brown sugar
whipped cream
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3 eggs
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 tablespoons butter, melted
3/4 cup flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar

Combine 1/2 cup sugar with cinnamon in a small bowl; set aside.

In a blender, combine eggs, milk, vanilla, butter, flour, salt, and sugar. Blend on high for 30 seconds.

Butter an 8-inch nonstick pan and heat over medium heat. Pour about 2 tablspoons of batter to form a thin sheet in the bottom of the pan. Cook for about 30 seconds until the edges just begin to brown and pull away from the side of the pan. Using a spatula, flip the crepe over and brown on the other side for about 15 seconds. Remove from the pan and repeat with the remaining batter.

For each serving, fold one crepe in half and then in half again. Repeat with 2 more crepes. Top with brown sugar strawberries, whipped cream, and a generous sprinkle of cinnamon sugar.

Loving this recipe....I always forget about making crepes for breakfast. My mom used to make them but for some reason would call them "Swedish Pancakes". Love the blender idea too - how easy!

Wow, crepes are so amazing, I always heard that they were terribly hard to make because of their thickness, but who knows, I guess i'll have to try it.
