Why you’ll love this Crepe Filling Recipe
You have a simple crepe recipe filled with a no bake cheesecake like filling and fresh macerated berries. They’re a dream come true! It’s like a berry cheesecake inside of a crepe crust, who can say no to that?!
I couldn’t believe how delicious they were – and even though I was only planning on eating a couple bites, I ended up eating three (that’s right THREE) full crepes. Each stuffed full of this delicious creamy filling, and sweet berries.
Ingredients you’ll need to make this Crepe Filling Recipe
- all purpose flour
- melted butter
- vanilla extract
- heavy whipping cream
- cream cheese
- mixed berries
How to make Fruit Crepes
- You’ll just make your crepe batter, by putting all the ingredients into the blender and pulsing till smooth. Refrigerate the batter for an hour or more, though I’ve also skipped this and only refrigerated for about 15 minutes, just to let some of the bubbles settle.
- Pour about 1/4 cup crepe batter into a large greased saute pan, or a crepe maker. And cook for about 1 minute, then flip the crepe over and cook the other side for about 30 seconds. Repeat with additional batter.
- Sauté up your berries with a little sugar, till they get a little juicy and let the sauce thicken just a little bit. Stir together the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla extract, then in another bowl, whip the cream until it’s nice and fluffy. Fold them together to make a nice fluffy mixture.
- Then take one crepe, spread the middle down with the cream cheese filling. Then add some berries over the top of the cream cheese mixture. Roll the crepes up, and top with additional berries, and some powdered sugar and dig in!
Sweet Crepe Recipe tips
- Make sure your batter is nice and smooth after blending. You don’t want any chunky flour bits in your batter. This will help keep the crepes thin.
- I’ve made these without chilling them for the full 1 hour as called for. You want to at least let the batter rest for 15 minutes to help the bubbles settle.
- Add just enough crepe batter to the pan to swirl it around and cober the bottom of the pan in a very thin layer. This will keep the crepes thin, with nice crispy edges, and so they don’t get chewy. Only about 1/4 cup batter should be needed for an 8 to 10 inch pan.
- You can also use a crepe maker to cook your crepes. Place your batter in a shallow bowl big enough to fit the crepe maker and dip it into the batter as you go.
- The recipe as is makes a lot of cream cheese filling. You can cut that portion of the recipe in half, or double the crepe portion depending on how many people you’re making breakfast/brunch for.
Berry Crepe storage
Any leftover crepes can be stored in a zip log bag in the fridge for up to 5 days. I like to stick layers of wax paper or paper towels between them to help prevent them from sticking to each other.
How to store leftover Cream Cheese Crepe Filling
Any leftover cream cheese, or berry filling can be stored in two separate airtight containers with a lid in the fridge for 5 days as well.
How to reheat a Berry Crepe
You can microwave the crepes for about 20 to 30 seconds when you want to enjoy them again, then fill them with chilled cream cheese and berry fillings, and enjoy!
