My kids get to pick whatever they want to eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner on their birthdays. My son just turned 5 years old and he asked for strawberry crepes for breakfast. I whipped up a batch for him and his sister and they gobbled up every last bite. This is a fun and easy recipe to prepare and it makes breakfast extra special.
- 4 eggs
- 1 1/3 cup milk
- 1 tbsp melted butter
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tbsp white sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 8-10 strawberries, stems removed and diced
- 1 tbsp sugar, more depending on the sweetness of the berries
- Powdered sugar, sifted
How to Make Strawberry Crepes
Combine the first seven ingredients in a large bowl; use an immersion blender (or whisk) to mix crepe batter thoroughly. Make sure there are no lumps in the batter.
Heat a small nonstick skillet over medium heat. Spray with cooking spray and using a small ladle, spoon about 3-4 tablespoons of crepe batter into the hot pan. Tilt the pan clockwise so that the batter spreads evenly over the bottom of the pan. Cook for 30 seconds to 1 minute; then flip to quickly cook the other side. Side Note: Most people only cook one side but I cook for a quick 5-10 seconds on the second side.
Combine the diced strawberries and the sugar together. Taste the berries and add more sugar if needed.
Remove the crepe from the pan and place it on a plate. Spread a few strawberries down the center of the crepe. Roll and place on another plate for serving. Sprinkle the top with sifted powdered sugar and more strawberries. Eat immediately. Enjoy.

Beautiful and easy to make. A real hit with my family.
I just made the crepes, and they were delicious! It wasn’t very sweet for my taste.
