Strawberry Banana Crepes (Serves 4-6)

Prep Time: 1 mins Cook Time: 10 mins

nut free

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Cup Flour
  • 3/4 Cups Milk*
  • 1/2 Cup Water
  • 1/2 Tsp Salt
  • 2 Tbsp butter, melted
  • Butter for sauteing
  • 1/4 Cup Strawberry Preserves
  • 1/4 Cup cream cheese
  • 2 Bananas, sliced into coins

Preparation

1. Place the first 6 ingredients in a blender and puree.
2. Refrigerate crepe batter for at least an 1 hour or overnight (this is so the crepes do not tear when cooking).
3. Grease a sauté pan (about 6” across) or crepe pan with butter, pour in 2 tbsp of the batter and tilt the pan to spread the batter around into a 6” circle.
4. Cook for 1 minute, flip and continue to cook another 30 seconds or until crepe just starts to become golden.
5. Remove the crepe to a plate and continue to make remaining crepes.
6. In a bowl, combine preserves and cream cheese until smooth.
7. Spread some of the cream cheese mixture across the middle of a crepe and top with several slices of banana.
8. Fold over the edges to close.
9. Repeat steps 7 and 8 with the remaining crepes.
10. Serve.

    wonder if you could use yogurt instead of cream cheese? I know it would be much runnier. Also if whole wheat flour would work?

    Sounds delicious!

      greek yogurt is much thicker and would probably be a perfect consistency!

      Ever tried yogurt cheese? Drain the whey from plain yogurt by pouring it into a clean, damp, layered cheesecloth (I use unused cloth diapers but you can even use some layered papertowel if you're in a pinch)and setting it inside a sieve, on top of a bowl, overnight. The liquid drains away and you're left with a creamy \"yogurt\" that's the consistency of cream cheese. You can use it as a substitute for cream cheese, sour cream, even mayonnaise. It would taste great in this recipe!

    Crepes are tricky. I've had an equal amount of successful and unsuccessful tries. :-) This looks like a perfect Valentine's Day breakfast!

    I like to use self rising flour (which is totally not the traditional way) but it gives them a little rise and creates a spongy texture. Yummy!

    My son has a wheat and egg allergy. I really love crepes and I want to cook him some too. Any suggestions on how to make eggless crepes? I've got a great flour blend to use for the wheat substitution part.

    Do you think that you could make an extra batch and freeze leftover crepes for future use?

    Yummm! I forgot all about crepes. I think I will whip up a batch for dessert. My favorite filling: fresh strawberries and Nutella. Oh man. I want some right now :-)

    These crepes bring back memories of my first days visiting Weelicious. I think your Crepe recipe was the first recipe I tried from this site, and they turned out fantastic. Will definitely try these!

    We made these this past weekend, but used blueberry preserves instead of strawberry (trying to use what was on hand!). They were very good. Thanks for the all the great ideas!

    After seeing your Nutella pancakes I'm debating combining the two ideas. Mixing the nutella and cream cheese together and then just using sliced strawberries (I'm not a huge banana fan except for banana bread).
